I wouldn't be too quick to write it off just yet... If you got it shut down before impact, it is quite possible that the expensive inside bits are still in good shape. If it were mine, I'd at least send it in for a repair estimate and then decide if it is worth it or not.

As for the Behotec 66 in a Tornado, I really suspect that the 66 is just too large for that airframe, given that it was designed with 54 size engines in the first place. If you have a need for a bit more speed, you might want to consider an AD Phoenix (available from AltecareRC.) I have one with a 66 in it and love it.

The Tornada looks like a great plane, but your P-70 would be more suited to it. I'm getting a Tornado myself for my Wren MW54 MkIII.

Re: Shockjet Maidened

Hi Jim, Thanks for your response, I have been pondering a Phoenix for the Behotec, not a bunch of info on this airframe, Also Thinking about a CARF Ultra Flash, but unsure if it would have enough jam.
