I'm looking for 200 mph, I'll get there just need to wait on the new cells and then use this pylon props Ray recommended...
If I go smaller prop the 16-50-2 ce delta might handle 6s.. Y or no??
I haven't flown it yet....hehehe...I've got Funjets hangin ...and just haven't got to them to Maiden ...still tryin to cope with the heavier landings with the ole original hopped up Ultra..before I try some of the other Megas..

With pylon prop you'll fly faster than your last flight.
Concensus is that GPS is not as accurate as Doppler.
Stay away from 6S for more than 1 reason.
Biggest: suoer sonic prop tip speeds (see my 6S graph)
Next: reduced diameter while trying to reach higher speeds.
Also needing even further reduction in prop diameter inorder to go over pitch to stay away from super sonic prop tip speeds.
That amount of Watts and AMPs will work in hotliner application but likely not in speed passes due to throttle duration.
Real 200MPH in level flight without dive is not guaranteed with 28mm, but if someone was going to try, 16/65/X to 16/70/X would be more worth while.....using over pitch 7" diameter props. That sort of static data might be posted in Feb.
I agree on all counts.....I had one prop on the 16/50...and as Gryphon stated....Jesus...what a screamin noise it made......SuperSonic...
Maybe not true 200...but...Dayum Impressive speeds for a 28MM can

Yep...me too...I'm still trin to git the approach down on my Landings..
....One bad thing for me is so many obstacles to deal with...
