Default Need Speed, What Is Out There???

Hey guys. I am a turbine guy normally. But I am looking for a FAST electric plane that I can fly for a quick trip out to the field without taking the trailer.

So what is VERY fast and electric????

Thanks guys!

How fast are you talking?

Check here:

Anything that has F5D in the title could be very fast (200 mph ish).

Actually a better forum for electric speed at RC Groups for this type of question.

I actually posted this over there too, but just in a regular electric forum. I did not see one for electric speed....

If you don't mind nitro power option, then it's hard to beat the Weston Magnum for speed and good looks.

Yeah, I know. I like the Magnum. But when I went turbine and stopped fooling with glow fuels, it was as if a great weight that had been upon me since 1973 had been lifted. No glow fuel oil, smell, goo, clean up, and all the crap that goes with it. For me until my last breath, I am afraid it is kerosene or electrons or (wishful thinking) a future mini-warp engine!

Woket... BUSTED... I caught you over here....

Im looking at the H9 jackal with a tricked out Dub Jett motor. I still dont mind glow.. Someone converted one to electric and it was darn fast 150+.. but it was a very high end setup. 10S 140 amp..

there are several fast pylon electrics too.. One could get an old q40 and convert it.
