Looking for quality ARF for intermediate level

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I'm looking for an ARF that is quality built at around $150 - $250. This is going to be my fourth plane and I looking to increase my skill level. I have trainer and low wing experience and consider myself intermediate skilled. I have an OS 70, four to put in it, so a 40 size should be about right.

Considering Funtana, Four Star or Twist.

any input will be appreciated.

The Sig 4*40 ARF is one heck of a well built plane, and exceeded all my expectations. I built mine 100% as stock (including all hardware) and it has had many good flights all summer. I havent had any issues at all with it. It flies great and is much more capable than I expected in terms of flight envelope.

It flies great with a good .40 two stroke, a .70 four stroke will be awesome!

I got the Twist and am quite pleased with the value and performance. @ ~$140 I got a well built, Ultracote covered plane. Other than a few balance problems that I resolved, I'm quite pleased with the plane. I build 90% of my stuff but for the dollar, this plane was just too good a deal.

The 4-star arf that I saw also looked great. It really depends on the type of flying that you want to do; that might help you make your decision.
