XPS Speed Contest For E-Jets


One of several planes we are entering into the E-Jet's speed contest is so impressive that we wanted to take the opportunity to allow anyone to guess the top speed. You get only one guess, and no guesses can be repeated by another person. So if there is already a guess at 208MPH, you can't say 208MPH yourself. The guess is for the single fastest pass by this aircraft, not any type of average. Standard 200 foot ceiling rule.

No pictures of the airplane will be shown prior to the event, and once we arrive at the event starts (September 6th), no more entries will be allowed.

Description of the plane:

Weight: 46+ lbs
Length: ~8'.5'
Wingpan: ~9'
Power system: XPS Dynamax Xtreme Pro series
Batteries: XPS 6800mAh 65C 15S

The winner will receive one of our new XPS Platinum Plus 6S/6800mAh packs. These packs are 65C discharge with a 8C charge! The 6800mAh packs are 1" longer than our 5000mAh packs, but the height and width are the same. Weight is about 4oz more than the 5000mAh packs.

Just post your guess in this thread. Just like E-Jets last year, we won't be checking any of our speed contest entries prior to the event. So, the speed will be as much a surprise to us as it will be to anyone else.

Good luck!

P.S. This entry puts us in the "over 20Kw club".

Top Speed: 183mph

My guess at the Jet....Skymaster Viper Jet
From Website: Length: 95 " (2400mm). Wingspan: 102'' (2600mm).included winglets.
Only popular jet I know of right now that is that size and has a wingspan greater than the length...
