The predator would make a great speed plane. What I like about the Q500 design, is that you actually have landing gear. Theres something about hand tosses that I just don't like.

Just about any sport .40 or .46 engine would get you over 100 mph.

They even fly about 90 mph with a good .25 or .32.

That was a real waste.... if the plane was in good shape there are plenty of Pylon Racers in our area that would have taken it or even given you a few bucks for the right to race it and give it a proper death... on a pylon, imbeded in the ground outside #3 or even taking out 2 for 1 in a midair. Compacter? such a waste... nutin cooler than pylon crashes except maybe the Talledega big one!
