How fast is ME 163 Komet compared to Pibros or Pico Jet

Hi guys, tell me how fast does the ACT ME 163 Komet go? Does it pass 100 kmh (62 mph) in level flight, and how much?
The wing and fuselage seems thinner and smaller than PicoJet, which I find is slow, so I assume it is faster. I plan to insert 8x500AR with sp400 6V and 4.7x4.7 Cam prop, which gives my Pibros 80 kmh (=50 mph) , and I'd like the komet to be (a lot) faster.

Please give me your wildest guesses!!

Nice plane anyhow!

If this is the ME163 sold by Dymond, it is about as fast as the Jet. The difference is that the folding prop has less pitch. Given the same prop, the thinner '163 would be faster. It is small enough to have to be flown in closer to see. The thin wing means be careful of hi-speed stall. The Jet is quick and well behaved for manuevers.

It is the comet sold by Dymond. Dang, I thought it would be much faster than PicoJet, any other experiences/comparisons?

…found out in german discussion forum rconline.net that ME163 is dammed fast, and beats the PicoJet and Pibros all the way concerning max-speed. So I'll dismount my old weared-out Pibros and buy a ME163 for racing fun.
