Anything "High Speed" is probably need either more volts or less turns.

not enough volts for anything too big but what about a Wattage Turbo Vector? The cells might be a tad heavy for a Sabre of Mig, but might be able to be slid into a Vector, I know I ran some CP1300's in a Turbo Hawk and they fit. The 3T in the Wattage fan works quite well too, especially on those volts. Then to upgrade it a tad get a Kyosho rotor from Tower Hobbies and turn it down and drop it in. You'd be amazed how fast those things get.

90-100 WOULD SUFFICE, but i want all i can get out of the setup,i understand a mf has its limits with the 3t and tp pack,thats why i'm looking for a simple light airframe too push around,bungee launch is okay.

i do'nt want to buy another fan,+ i've had bad luck with the ky rotors breaking on not so soft belly landings i was thinking maybe something on the line of a bobcat type airframe for this setup,like on ejf,but howbout i put the mf in the 23" model

you will have a hard time hitting C/G on the small version. And go for a turbo hawk then, it comes with the fan and the fan is safe on top. and Im telling you it's very! fast with that setup

With a mega 3t on 3s2p the super sniper will not perform anywhere near your expectations. More volts or get a mega 2t for it. IMO its not worth spending the money on a nice kit and using your setup. It just won't perform anywhere near what your looking for.

I'm not trying to push someones product here, but take a look at Dynamo Electrics HET-Rc Sniper ad. There is a video of the Sniper flying at 185 kph which works out to about 120 mph. (If my math is right) HET-Rc Sniper

As you go a little further down the ad, there is a link to a single post in the RC Groups Sniper thread from the planes developer describing the power system in the jet when the video was shot. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...3&postcount=73

for the Mega 3T you need a 4S however the 16/15/x series is factory rated up to 55K rpm so you could in theory run a 5S pack with the 3 Turn motor.
