182 isnt too shabby on 4S man, fair honking actually as the watts in is very low (but very efficient), must be a slippery plane. Remember itll take 6S
That is why i posted that,i was just playing
...I have read almost every thread on these planes,power setups,and realistic speeds....I know 200mph on 4cell,and 241mph on 5,just is not happening
They must be NEWBS like me.
....That is why if i am asked how fast my Swist is right now (and that happens alot) I say it is a true 165mph plane,but can cheat and make it go faster....We have had soooo many passes recorded from 3 cell phones between 160 to 176 mph,so there must be some truth in those numbers...i know they are not the most accurate way to test speeds,but it must be close.And truth be told,i never thought i would fly an RC plane such as this at these speeds,and do it OK....so right now,i am very PROUD of myself,and am very excited to move forward and continue to fly,build,and learn about these Badd Boys......On a side note,i could not be happier with my Mega,the damn thing just blows my mind every time the Swist goes up....and i know i am going to sound like a Little Girl when i type this,but the other night when i put a 4.75X4.75 on there,and plugged in the 5cell,and fired it up for a second...I jumped back a few feet feet while letting out a high piched squeal....a my have even peed on my own leg just a bit
