Aaawwweee.......you thought you could come into the sand box and play by your own rules for speed runs......don't forget to clean the sand out of your undies too.......

I can find countless posts that hold great data and research in this thread,proven information,proven data from flights.
I have yet to see any false claims from members you and your wagon have on it.....please don't let the sand scratch you up,I still agree you have "The fastest diving HK drive setup for the FJU"


Again,congratulations,you da man with the fastest dive!!!

ps i have high respects for gurus here that have taken the time and take the time to help out with question . i have asked or have seen asked , ive learned alot from them , and just like them i have learned something from you . you took a cheap turnigy motor and made it goes ludicrous speed . thats an achivement . hold you head up .if i ever get up to the skill of flying fast like you and "lets say Mopar" i can go out and do exactly what you did . by reading what you did. and if someone says ooh thats cheating ima tell go ffff off . im not competing im having fun thats what this is all about
sorry if i offended anyone
but i just got tired off all the bs
I never said diving was cheating.
Post 6518 congratulated him on his achievement.
Picking up an attitude when asked to make a pair of level opposite direction passes never ends well.

Asking someone to make a pair of opposite direction level passes isnt telling someone that they are cheating, its asking them to do something.

All markus had to say was that he wasnt comfy doing a flight that way.
I personally went way out of my way to try to make markus see that his wicked fast FJU did what no other FJU has done before, and I get attitude ?
Thats where I say "ima tell go ffff off "

You didnt offend me, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but when markus tries to turn a simple request around into a bunch of arrogant insulting diatribe filled posts, ...................... "ima tell go ffff off " !!

Just some back and forth fun....pretty easy to do....
With 57 deg F entered into my doppler program, here is what I get


That pass @ 26 seconds has you @ 184 mph
42 seconds has you at 178 mph
1:27 seconds 184 mph

NICE !!!!!!!!!

Agreed, for sure.

I tried to put all the detail in the post, to help others with their planes, and learn too on different things other folks are doing, if they which to share.

Got some wickedly crazy out there responses of no value to anyone.

More interesting questions might be how many runs on the plane so far, how did you set motor angle, where was the CG, what was the radio set-up, did you use expo, how much, why the separate RX battery, how much travel, where were the trims for the high speed run, did it want to torque roll on the high speed runs, why did you not cut off the trim around the fuse like others, would you build it the same next time, any flutter issues, did trim change with speed, how do you launch it, any more videos?

I am generally interested in these types of things.

Getting anything at or near 200 is cool, especially a $109 foam kit. So if a guy wants a solid 140, or 150, or 160mph version, it also can and has been done, nice. This plane is a great entry into higher speed planes, without breaking the bank.

Flying at these speeds has risks, you need to understand them ahead of time.

i have alot of respect for you heavy hitters like mopar rim, mark (you)and countless others. who have pushed this plane over 150mph .its not an easy task to take a plane to these extreme speeds safely, the built time, the experementing with props and fail attempts .i dont take it for granted what you guys do , thanks to you guys i know exactly what i need to be a heavy hitter thanks to the info you guys post ,i know im not ready for to be in the big leaques. so reading the exploits of you guys is enough for me .thats why id rather that you guys move on and continue to share the knowledge.
you did an amazing feat, you feel you dont need to go any further. i respect that , enjoy the acomplishment .sharing what you did and how you did it is more important to you "great". thats what i want to know .i dont care that you did it in a dive with wind ,you did 215mph ,that is crazy . i care about what you did to do those speeds
rim just posted a video of him doing 184mph .that is amazing(to me) i dont care that it was a straight run. i wanna know what he used and what he did to make it that fast did he use a cheap motor did he use a top shelf prop thats what i care about not the dive not the straight run . i hope my point make sense to you guys i will gladly ship out a pack of Orbit gum to you guys to make up.

m going back to lurking ( reading )since i enjoy reading and what you guys are doing to make this plane fast and about what i need to do in the near future . as of right now my set up is a humble motor only capable of 120 .
again i dont mean any disrepect to any of you . just be warned one day i will be posting a video of my plane doing 200mph and im going to GLOAT. LOL

Those who are looking for 200mph, why not an F5D airframe?

Outrunners only

I wanted to share my own design universal outrunner motor mount with you guys.
That has been in use for more than 2 years on several FJU's.
It saves ~20gr on the original motor mount, and has proven to withstand >3Kw.

that is sure interesting things that I am sure would have been brought up if you had not take all this the wrong way.... I really dont know WHY someone would not fly one level pass ? what is there to loose? the plane wont burn up cause of one pass... we asked YOU because you are one of the first flying this setup and filmimg it, abd dear to fly low to the camera, we cant doppler someone flying 50 feets above as we see in many videos..... I know you dont care, but there is lot of other here wants to know how fast this setup is in level flying... If you dont want that, OK fine, say it, and we will back off.... Im sure there will be another one filming hid ultra with this setup soon anyway, then we will know..
