Need advice on finding kit for jet build

I'm looking to build my first EDF jet - however, I am not too familiar with the manufacturers. My only requirement is an all balsa kit (would consider foam wings). I have built many electric airplane kits. Any suggestions on possible kits would be appreciated.

I am starting a Mirage 2000 from classic flying machines, so far it has been great building the wings. As a delta wing this might be a really nice flyer for a first EDF.

The need for speed
I think some of the best all balsa jet kits out there are made by RBC Kiits..

I recently built the F22 with twin minifans and its awesome.. My video is at there website..

I think the RBC F35 JSF would be a good choice as well.

anything RBC would be a good first kit. they fly well and all the parts you need are there, no ducting to fabricate, which can be tough if your not familiar with that process. Warbirds -RC in the link above sells RBC kits. And many poeple have built them so between Warbirds site and here you can get plenty of answers.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I noticed that most (all?) of the RBC kits show bungee launch. I fly from a paved runway - do they show how to install fixed gear?

Hey Now
All the above are good choices if your good at building with balsa!
For airliners try for an all wood airliner model. Also, has a balsa/ply Bob-E-Cat of various sizes.

I have a F-15 kit it's pretty nice. The Savidgelight Su-27 is a spectacular kit but alas I'm just not into Flankers. Also, JetHangar Hobbies F-14 Tomcat is pretty darn slick as well. Warbirds-rc and has lots of the RBC jet kits.

For little nano wood jets try
