Must be the custom Gary Legerton flouro pink rattle can paint job. Now that
John can see the plane, sky's the limit.

He was talking about tubing the elevator to try to stop
the shriek. I wonder if that did the trick.

Awesome guys! I hope there's video ! Lots and lots of video!

Spencer's gotta have that 'grin' Set the bar about 40 notches higher - with a plane he designed, built and flew himself !!!

With all the time that has passed with so many speeds coming in at just around 300, 357 launches our sport into a whole new realm. While I might have previously dismissed suggestions of 400+ as verging on folly, now I'm asking what's next? Mach One?

Amazing job Spencer!

Can somebody give us a write-up on the conditions of the wind and anything else that contributed to this new world record?

Congrats!

was talking to Spencer, Now I call him Magnum boy,, lol 357 yea,, HE said that the new plane is much more rock solid, much less flex than the last 100"k and he thinks that he has at least another 50mph in it. WOW

The speed John got with the thunder taker was actually the lighter one, Jasons HE left his new one at home! Winds were over 50 when they first got there and quartering but just got better.

John Mass Balanced the Blasts H-Stab, (if I remember he said with steel rod) and it is now quite, and fast, he also filled the gap in the aft fuse with expoxie. Said it's like a new plane,,, 293!!

Bunch of new bps and only one crash. I'll post em all on rcspeeds later.

Fastest RC plane ever?


Just a question, are there any faster RC planes, with the jets and stuff, what are the fastest planes,powered or not, I think this is it, on wind, amazing.
