Well you must remember that I went the cheap route and did not set it up like a "hotliner". My setup was direct drive, basically what you would run on a Stryker. 36mm inrunner, 7x7 prop. I started with 4S 4900mah packs and went to a 5S 3300mah pack.

When I increased the cells, I kept the same prop but went from a Phoenix 80 to an Ice 100 controller.

Speed was only around 125mph. I didn't have the thrust needed for speed. Plus the fact that I could not gain good momentum in a dive with a fixed prop.

None the less, it was still my favorite plane. Very fun to fly. The speed did amaze spectators when they saw the size of the prop.

Remember, we are talking about a 65" wing with a 7" prop. It was ridiculous, but a lot cheaper than a gear box, HV125, good 16x17 folder.....etc
