small COAX outdoor speed

Physically stabilized* rotorcraft (+ fixed-wing!) eat substantial energy stabilizing themselves in the normal outdoor turbulence.

Thus their actual airspeed is lower outdoors!


Subtly de-stabilizing them by further incr. coning angles, for ex., will increase indoor and esp. outdoor speed ....

*[i.e., axes not stabilized by so-called "giros" through the PCB]
