Best high speed model?

Yep. The more wing span and less wing chord you got, the more you will need to reinforce and strengthen it, especially for high speed stuff. That's part of why I brought up the slender delta thing: tons of chord and not much span makes for a strong wing.


Knower of useless information
My experience from flying the FT racer was that the wing root is not super strong, as would be expected from a foam spar. Mine failed spectacularly during a high speed pass causing a big cloud of foam and much hilarity on the flying field.

Recommendations: Strengthen or replace spar with something stronger than foam and if possible have dual throws setup for regular and high speed flight envelopes.
Paint Stick. It works in the MiG-3; it should work equally well in the Racer, and they're light.
