FPV Distance Records - By Airframe

Just wondering what the distance records are for the various airframes used in FPV. My hopes are that this thread could show what a finely tuned setup can get, and where the bar is set for a specific manufacturer or scratch based airframe. So please post your max if you think it's a contender for any airframe used for FPV. And, let me know which airframes to add and how best to categorize. We don't need to get into build specifics here... maybe a link to the build if there is one, or the video of the flight.

***New Requirement for posting. You must post your record topping data for me since I can't take the time to convert from meters and feet to miles and then kilometers, and add in your plane and all that. Each person is task with posting in TEXT for me the following in this format. If not in this format you won't be on the list. ;-)

Just a little over 5 km when I climbed up to 11,000 feet. I've never done a distance flight with the stryker but am now itching to try.

10000 mah 4 cell cularis will get you 28+ km away and back

it penetrates well into wind and can take a heavy battery

It will glide 28+ km back

for sure the longest range set up on the list.

28 km away and back should take about 1.5 hour in total with that plane

don't ask me how I know
