No 50 can match a good 90 What are you looking for form the ship? What will you skill let you do? I thought the same went to the 90 the thing has so much power it can get away easy now I fly a r50 keeping it very close keeping my manuevers as close to me as possible and it is really helping my 90 flight, no matter what you can't go wrong these things are just bad ass, good luck Paul

You could try an MP1 - more power than an MP2 (and more peaky to boot). Got the money upgrade to a 90. Might want the upgrade clutch as well, bigger tank, better starter - more fuel etc etc. You should be able to get the 70 to fly at least as fast as the 50 ship if you get the most out of the engine. If you are after agility then look at different paddles, get the headspeed up. Tough to get it as chuckable as a 50 or the same relative vertical performance, unless you go with a 90.
