You should be in the 120-130 range.. try lots of props,, i've been surprised what works well for flat out top speed. Nice covering!

An apc 9x7 would be a good prop to start w/, easy launches and yes about 120-130, and the engine will like it.

Get a Q40 pylon racing engine for it. You will be looking at pretty easy 190+ mph runs if you prop it right.

a few references

Agreed - QM40 engine will get you some good top end, but launch is a little tricky. Not impossible. Some folks have had some amazing results.

More traditional FIRE type engine will get you tons of speed and a little more margin on launch since you have a bit more flexibility on prop selection.

Ultimately, the question is how fast do you wish to go ?

JETT FIRE 50 AND PIPE is what I have one mine.

Also the silicon coupler (header - pipe) makes a great hand hold for a under-hand launch.

Screamin' Demon with a Nelson .40 and a "Little Demon" with a ASP .12.
The Screamin' Demon kit is very well engineered and proven to be as fast as any deltas in this size category.

Sick CP......just sick. Do you ever make anything that's not about to break the laws of physics?

FF, do you like the one with the engine laid down flat...? Bruce Matthews gave me that idea.
Too bad that messy NVA hangs out in the wind, but it's handy for running a latex bladder tank.
Otherwise, that mess could be cleaned up if the model had a normal tank and ran off crankcase pressure.

I have relisted my Screamon Deamon kit.

No time to build since I had surgery on my hand. [:@]

A freindly notice from the Shameless Commerce Division of Bob E.

I have flown diamond dusts back about 10-12 years ago. I always run a on os piped up. I have never went to the extreme end to do funds back then. I had took break from the hobby for a few years. I had friend I helped wrap his car with carbon fiber vinyl wrap. I thought it looked real "space aged" being back into the hobby now. I wanted a platform to wrap. The dust was the first thing that came to mind! I think it looks good.

Is that the self adhesive stuff that sign shops wrap commercial vehicles with..?

Pretty amazing how they can print out a life sized photograph [for example] and all the other graphics then apply it so perfectly to a car body that's full of bumps and curves.

Yes it's a 3M product. Looks really nice I think. We wraped an entire car. It can be heated and streched around curves.

I used to buy big rolls of that stuff with a friend, then we each took 1/2 and covered all our styrofoam combat planes with it. It was just clear plastic. It worked really well and was more puncture proof than monokote. We never found it wholesale and the outfit that sold it retail called it "Fascal". Some guys would spray paint or dye the sticky side before covering with it.
Since then, I've heard of a similar product called Avery paper.
I've never tried using it on open framework, I didn't know it would work.

I used the wrap over the monokote it really doesn't shrink. But it think it should hold up to the wear and tear to belly landings. I have ripped the covering off a dust in the past.
