Yeah, nothin' 3D's like a Velox!

It's performance is pretty remarkable, it's an amazing all-rounder, and a favorite of many. I can't think of anything it's not good at, for throwing down it's just a perfect tool for the job. I would have owned a few by now myself but the plan for a re-scheme has been on the table for a while. I can't wait.
Is it staying at 68"?

+1

I had one and I sold it. I wish I had kept it. It's a harrier monster. Has tons of pitch authority, too.

pretty sure at least, but I'm not 100% positive... could add an inch to the wing just to make it easier to recognise. 69 is a heck of a number after all...

Wondering same thing, so it will become a true 25%? Understood that the 68" was not.

While KM says a 69 velox is cool....I personally believe that a 60cc velox would REALLY rock...

I had one....will likely have the new one....go figure...

70 would be better.

If you find a good one, please post its' location. I really want to see the numbers behind a full power blender.

Speaking of full power blenders, I'm guessing I shouldn't do them on my 87 SHP when I get it? The 47 SHP doesn't seem to mind, but it has way less inertia.
