Phase 3 F-16 with Don's RC 4800KV on 4S

Phase 3 F-16 with 4800 KV Don's Motor on TP Extreme 4S 2200. Fan is Alpha with five blades. Video is short because of flutter in the tailerons.

Thanks go out to "The Don " for the motor and Light Flight for good prices on TP batteries (repeat customer prices).

That's pretty sweet. I have one of the Phase 3's sitting on the bench to be built right now. If it's gonna even be close to that speed I'll be happy. How fast do you guys think you where going? Looks over 125 to me.

Hi Guys,

I have no idea how fast but the two passes were made without diving into the pass and were only full power after the plane was straight and level.

IMO, you don't need anything faster than that.... it will fly out of your visual range in just a couple of seconds!!

Awesome job.
