Note: remove wedgie prior to flight or you'll need pliers to get it out afterwards.
This is my Avionik D-99 F5D pylon racer. It has a Hacker B40-FAI, 9-CP1700mAh cells, spinning a 4.75 APC-E at over 35,000RPM. This is one of the planes I flew in the World Champs 2002 in Winterthur, Switzerland. This is a video of just hot dogging around. Guestimated speed on faster passes is about 180mph+. The plane is approximately the size of a 1/2A glo racer: 160sq", ~40" (1 meter) span, 28.5oz (810g) RTF weight. Record for this airframe on an official FAI pylon course is 66 seconds. Video is 30megs. Sorry for in-and-out focus and lack of zoom (that's what the "This is gonna be ugly" comment was). Wind was gusting 15-20mph.
