Recommend a really fast hand launch bird

I like speed and want to know what you guys recommend me a really fast and good flying craft.

I don't want to mess with a bungee launch. I want to be able to hand launch it!

What do you recommend?

Oh, big is good too (if that works)!

If you are looking for a Pylon type plane, I am really enjoying my Vixen. Wingspan is 35", wing area is 132 sq in. And its hand launchable.

Ok, I have been doing some reading in this thread about hotliners and others but still don't know much else.

I am a good pilot equipped with a Futaba 9C Radio (so air-brake is an option).

I want something fast, medium to big and realatively durable.

Thanks Jay!

I was hoping for somthing a bit bigger though. Makes it easier to see. Do you know how fast your plane is?

What is your motor setup? Mega 3-4 turn?

What about the Filip 400RG from NSP? I just bought one because I wanted a hotliner too. Haven't maidened it yet because need to finish it and I am waiting on the weather to improve.

Check out any of the F5B or F5F type models. THese seem to be the sort of thing you're after. A good sample can be found on Shredair's site and elsewhere.
