Is anything better than a Twinjet?

I've just watched Henket's Twinjet video (it should be compulsory viewing by the way - what a blast!). I thought our Combat Wing was fast and furious, but now I want more!

So...is there anything faster and more aerobatic than a Twinjet? The semi-scale fighter plane look of the Twinjet is also very appealing. Anyone got a better option before a buy one more plane that I really don't need?

Thanks

Peter

Hi

The Projeti is half the size of a TJ, and faster.... faster than Picojet too.

but it´s made of ordinary styropor and is not as durable as the TJ.

Go for the new Blue TJ, and decal it as the Blue Angels!! with Sp480 and 8x2400 it flies good! up to 80-90km/h. with brushless it really rocks!

I did not find anything better, overall, compared to the Twinjet, so far.


There is plane V that is easier to repair, plane W that has many possible upgrades, plane X that flies faster, plane Y that is more durable, plane Z which does more stunt

To get all VWXYZ capabilities in 1 plane, in a very high standard: Only the Twinjet.

Thanks - it's always a compromise between different features. I like bigger - it looks more realistic - and durable is good as you take more risks and learn more quickly.

Sounds like the Twinjet.
