    EF 1 speed

    Have not been around (ANY) EF 1 pylon racers. I bought a POGO and would like to know what speed I am looking for?

    Anyone out there used a radar gun to see the speed?

    Thanks for the response. I was beginning to wonder if anyone would tell me.
    At least now I have something to go by.

    ORIGINAL: pylonboy26

    This is consistant with what I have seen as well. They are very close in speed to AMA 424 with Thunder Tigers on them.

    RE: EF 1 speed

    ANOTHER QUESTION.
    WOULD THE POGO BE COMPETITIVE COMPARED AGAINST ONE OF THE KIT BUILT RACERS?
    READY TO FLY WITH A TURNIGY 2650 BATTERY, IT WEIGHS 3LB. 11OZ.
    THE POGO SEEMS TO FLY OK ONCE IT IS AIRBORNE.

    RE: EF 1 speed

    The Pogo does very well against any other EF-1 design.

    I think that the kit built models however do have an advantage as they are built to weight and will be sanded and covered smoother than an ARF. I think that can be said for any type of racing event.

    I would say practice and nail the takeoff and you will be right on track with anyone else.
