Fast ?

Here's a converted 50mm EDF to Pusher that is flown at mostly 1/2 throttle ....

On a later flight she was clocked at over 180kph

My Parkjet was clocked at 222kph....

Here's another 50mm EDF at over 140kph ... actually clocked on one flight at 150kph (140 is a wall for any T45 or similar design ... takes a lot of power to get past that).

Its an addictive world that I have finally managed to salvage myself from. I still have my Parkjet twin to sort - calculated speed is over 300kph ... but its a dog to get launched.

Good luck !
