Multiplex FunJet vs ParkZone F-27C Stryker

...i've owned 2 Projeti's - both with Mega 3 turns - they were in the 100mph range (and are both now departed)...

...i'm still flying my Multiplex Pico Jet w/Mega 3 turn - it's not quite as fast (probably in the 85 to 95mph range)...

...so when Horizon claims 80mph for their F-27C Stryker i'm not too impressed - i'd like something as fast as my old Projeti's with more durable foam - which would come closer to getting me there...the Multiplex FunJet or the ParkZone F-27C Stryker?...

F-27C will do about 70-75 straight and level max stock. It does have a very nice flight envelope. Can be flown very slowly or fast. This design has alot of drag so it will be expensive to push to 100 or better. It is a very durable airframe and has forgiving flight characteristics

The Funjet is easily faster but less forgiving than the Stryker, using same weight and power.
The Funjet is as capable as a Stryker of slow flight but is just a little less floaty.
The Funjet has better roll rate and less drag.

Just Get a Stryker body for $20.00, carve off the air intakes to stream line it, put balsa elevons, projeti type tail and put in a hot motor! Butch

They should be available through GP or Global, but suppy may be an issue.
After building and flying the FJ the Stryker seems slow and mushy. I really enjoy the FJ, it took a few flights to adjust to it from the stryker, but it is a superior design. Sorry if this offends any of the Stryker faithful, but I'm convinced the FJ is superior.

I love the Stryker but it is true that if you want speed instead of just cruising around you should go for a less draggy airframe like the Funjet or a wing. Stryker design based on a glider - flies and looks great. Have not got the Funjet yet but fly the Microjet which is a crazy fast little bird. Too bad they discontinued it but Funjet should be better flyer and easier to see.
