which is the faster model?

comparing these two completely different models: starmax f18 90mm and freewing f35 360 tv on these setups ....which will be the faster model in the air on a level pass?

starmax f18 90mm : on stock setup and 5s 5000mah 30'c (keep in mind that the stock uses 6s 3700 25c lipos)

freewing f35 70 mm 360 tv: on js1400 motor/ 5s 3600mah 30c lipos

estimated top speeds of each?
appreciate the input guys....

Having never seen the freewing f-35, I'd think it would be faster.'the js1400 on 5S will be about 2000watts.

If you ran WOT, under 2 minutes. With throttle management, I could see 3-4 no problem.

It may be a close call on the speed. My buddy at the field had the V1 90mm F-18 on 5s and it was faster than anybody thought it would be. It was holding its own against a P-60 turbine powered Boomerang. He went to 6s which proved to be a bad idea. It gave up 2000watts.....just before, while on the bench, the fan exploded and went through his brand new castle 110.

But on 5s it was somewhere near or in triple digits.
