Nice RADAR gun, and very fast speeds! I have the same gun, and the same plane, not ready to fly it yet, only 30% done with the build. Fastest seen on my gun so far has been 215mph, hoping the Swist will see over 225mph, 240mph I would be thrilled!

I'm sorry,but some of the speeds that people claim are laughable .....No way he is getting 240mph out of a 28mm inrunner w/tinny prop.I was spinning 4.5X5.5 at around 50,000 rpm on 6 cells and could only get 204 to 207mph flat and level,and 221mph with a WICKED DIVE.......and that is Hauling Azz in real MPH.

Not to mention,that is claiming that an ARC motor on 5cells w/off the shelf prop is only 47mph slower then the FASTEST Speedcup plane running Crazy PowerCroco Outrunner on 10cells w/custom 7X10 blades......Sorry,not even in the same ballpark.

It's probably set to km/h :-)

Thanks for the sweet comments on the 6cell F5D Folder setup.....It is still a bit strange having that massive acceleration (over small APC),that crazy pull out of the turns,and nice speeds,with low noise.

Yea that's the thing about the folders, when you hit the gas it goes right now. But on hard turns from Pylon 1, I think that once the small props are up to speed, they unload very quickly. It's getting them up to speed initially that takes a bit of time.
