Default .46-.60 Speed Wing

I bought on E-Bay a .46-.60 Speed Wing (Delta) a few weeks ago. It is all balsa built and covered in a covering like Ultracote. I purchased a Jett Fire 50 with rear tuned pipe. I am using JR Sport 125MG servos for the elevons. Running an APC 8.8x8.5 prop, it was turning over 18,000 rpm after the 5th tank. All I can say is that it flew ballistic. Take your eye off of it and it is gone.

Yup, hand launch. Give her full power, a little up elevator and off it goes.

You got the right engine for almost any sport/speed application, also very good sport engine. Seems engine wise, you have to have a rear exhaust engine to go faster. Exhaust pipe hanging out there is a lot of unneeded drag. Its the Jett that is making this wing scoot. If you want to go faster in the future, try a diamond dust or similar thing wing. This engne has a lot of good airframes available when you want to go even faster. ENJOY

Yes it is the 'clone' from e-bay. No manual or any information but for the price $95 + shipping, you can't go wrong. I figured with the Jett Fire 50 it was going at 150 mph or better and the motor is not even broken in yet.
