Question

How fast is this (video)?


Hey Everybody!

I'm wondering how fast my PopWing is... I'm bad at guessing speeds and I think that some of you might be better at this. All you have to do is watch the first few seconds of this video, and give me an estimate of the speed when it flies by!

PopWing Adventures (3 min 12 sec)


Thanks!

Using an air temp. of 65 degrees F (completely random guess), RCSpeedo says that first pass was 58MPH.

If you have a smartphone, RcSpeedo is a great app for checking the speed of your planes.
