I'd go with a Great Planes Revolver and put a .61 two stroke in it.

I have one matched up to a TT.61Pro swinging an APC 11x8 and it smokes, easily over 100mph.

Planes with a really heavy wing loading are just not fun to fly, even if there's enough power up front.

Made the first flight today..that viper was fassssst fast is a under statement, it was so fast it wasnt fun to fly lol..clocked at 187mph the first time and the 2nd clock was 192mph and that was a flat pass..I was affraid to dive it. You guys were right, the balancing was a real pain and I had to reinforce it with carbonfiber tape, and the landing was even fast and hairy at 25-30mph, it was a real thrill to fly but the .61 is just too much power for it, it became a dot very quickly! im going to put a O.S.46 back on it and call it a day!
If your Viper went 192 with a .61 on it you should get your radar checked!

For those who may not know him since he doesn't post in this forum, s-10promod is a fellow club member, a die hard pylon racer, and has a couple Nelson 40 powered quarter 40 pylon racers. One has been shot on radar at 183 mph. I've seen both planes fly - and his Napier Heston down right scary!. His Nelson powered 428 Quickies only do about 165, and these speeds are representative of the breeds.

I agree - that radar needs to be checked. I fly another buddies Viper with a Thunder Tiger 40 Pro, and in full race trim it's been tracked on radar at 127 mph. With a sport .61 maybe 135 on a very good day with a tail wind.

Did anybody else find it interesting that he started out having no idea what plane to buy and then three days later the plane was built, had been flown and had been clocked by a radar.

I would still be ironing out the wrinkles after 3 days
