Come on down VooDoo Child so I can kick your ass with my Viper!

(Figuring you're the type of guy who responds to a challenge!).

I have a limiter you can borrow. It's almost plug-and-play if you have 4mm bullets (will need to solder a small wire lead with single, 1mm female bullet to the negative lead on your ESC battery wire.)

Or, I know you have plenty of fast stuff, but don't know if you have an F5D setup - I thought I read somewhere that somebody had a spare plane.

And my Swist will kick you Vipers if we had a "who can do 247mph 5 inches off the ground comp,cause i can do that all day long" (1:18 in vid) But all kidding aside,i was 100% ready to go for the first date posted to this little meeting of the speed minds,but when it got changed to this date of Sept 28,all went to heck,as i am in the middle of a huge project for Homeland Security at there new ICE building here in Portland (easy to google and check project) and the insane deadline is set for Sept 28...and we have been killing ourselves 14 hours a day to meet this deadline so we will not have to deal will the Govt's insane contract buyback which is to the tune of $7,500 per day after .....Now with that being said,i am still not giving in yet,i would give my left you know what to get a shot at flying with the best out there and ripping it for the good old US of A.

This is the third such building i have Bomb Blast Protected for them.....To put it lighly,these places are where they bring the worst of the worst...Like the people that will have people that want to get there people out at no cost to others...IE,like drug cartel...plus they have other uses...The technology and money put into these buildings are insane (lots they do not put into writing)...This is what i do for them

Nice video and nice flying VooDoo Child.

I used to fly the same way - unrestricted low passes with all the prop my setup could handle (though not as fast as that Swist of yours for certain). But try navigating that brute around a pylon course for ten laps before using 1000 W-min...more of a challenge I assure you.

Well, hope you can get the time to make it down to San Diego!

Yup,i have done the 10 laps many times but never with a limiter...i can see how that can be added fun (i swear that was not sarcastic,i think ) I have been watching your progress,you have been going at it like an animal,congrats.
