Lately all this talk about Grass Jets has spured me on to buy my secound jet (Not including the Elan RIP) I have a JC Titan that was just waiting for a home, so Now she's got one. Ive always liked the looks of this one. The Angle from Aviation Designs. And now I have one
All kidding aside, the Angel is the larger version of my Phoenix. The Phoenix is my all time fave jet for just grab and go fly. Very easy to fly (since it flies true and has absolutely no bad tendencies) and lands well. If what they say about bigger flies even better, your Angel should be awesome!

Actually Eric, its a combonation of both. The Grass friendly jets tend to have trailing link gear with larger dia tires. Not the very complicated scale gear that cost a fortune and is easily damaged by the banging and bumps you get from sod. In addition the engines sit higher up on the airframe and stand less chance of burning the grass. Its been my experience, that the only time the grass gets burnt from my Sprint jet,(I have over 65 flights on sod) is when the plane is at a full stop and I goto full throttle. I can, and do, taxie on the grass all the time and never burn the grass. The trick is to add just enough power to get it moving and then go full throttle. If I can, I will use a barren peice of land and use that for the run up.
