Salto 14s Electric Glider Vs Falcon 120 Turbine Jet

At the Swan Hill Electric Fun Fly and Addies Hobbies bought along a Falcon 120 Turbine Jet running a KingTech 80 Turbine, for a display, so it was put up against Bill Hamilton's Salto which is a 1/3rd scale 4.53 meter span with Turnigy 80/100 outrunner, 14S 5000 Lipo and Jeti Spin 170A controller. Prop is 3 blade RFM 16x16 wide on 100mm hub.
First up i must say this was extremely hard to film they were both just too fast for me and my cheap camera but i did get a couple of good passes and the sounds are always great when machines like this go flat out, so sorry for the bad footage bits hope you enjoy the good passes

cheers chuck

Not your normal matchup for sure

So, which one was faster?

Id guess the electric had batter acceleration and climb and likely turned tighter, but it was had to tell any difference in top speed from the video.
