Fastest FPV Vehicle

The Mountains around where I live are great for proximity flying so I was wondering: What is the fastest plane usable for fpv? Anyone got any records or personal bests?

Why don't you ask the other FPV pilot in your town?

Zephyr would seem to be the obvious choice though.

Zeph, like beauregard. He's already flying one in Steamboat, like Ian said.

I was at an fpv meet end of last year and a friend brought along a Fun jet run on 6s and fpv'd it for a laugh. We recon it hit over 150 mph at a guess lols.

Ya, that's the lovely thing about FPV. We've got basically 3 usable legal frequencies total,
and in some urban areas, only one. Eventually someone is going to get
shot down by another FPV pilot, flying miles away with some massively
overpowered video Tx, and neither party will even meet.
