He's got a radar gun now and they clocked it at 201mph.

Still more speed potential as that was only the second prop he's tried (apc 7.4x8). Motor and batteries were only warm.

9S1P Lipo powered... awesome...but $$$ for the whole elect setup. However, you don't have to spend any money on cleaning spray and paper towels

In case any of us wanna build this bad boy here are the specs:

Neu 15/15/2y
Hacker 135-O-F5B
This was only the 2nd prop I've tried. It was a 7.4 X 8 APC Carbon racing.
Three EVO 3700's. IE: 9s1P. This is definitely enough duration. The most I've replaced of 3700mah was 2200mah after flying for 7 minutes. Full throttle about 65% of the time. Usually I back it off on downwind then come by us full-on.
JR 770 receiver. (THat reminds me of something else. I don't advertise for anyone but ever since I put a JR 770 in one of my small F5D's and never got a hit, I have continued to put them in every plane I own. In the Vendetta, the aileron servo wires run right over battery wires and the receiver is about 2 inches from the main power output from the speed control. I have not had the plane do one thing that I did not ask it to do. There was not enough room to do much else and luckily it has been flawless.
And a STRONG/AND FAST Servo on the elevator. It is tough to move the elevator very far and I only have one elevator servo on there (unlike my others) so I didn't skimp.
Oh yea...I'm running a 5-cell receiver pack. I love how fast the servos are on 5-cells.

I've an old Race Rat in the box. Wonder if these new motors and electronics would fit... The kit was famous years ago.
