Default Diamond Dust faster than an Arrow?

Man I'm having a ball with my Laser Arrow. So much fun that I want to have a spare airframe ready for my next case of dumb thumbs. I'm thinkin' the Dust is faster judging from what I've read. Anyone here seen both fly? The Arrow seems to have a fairly thick wing.

Thanks
Mitch

And here is a link to a video. The claim is 145 MPH with a Jett 50

So I guess the proper question is how fast will a DD fly with a Jett 50. The Arrow is SUCH an ez build that I'd need a good reason to build anything else.

I fell a new thread coming on

Okay so 145 with a Jett for the Arrow. Well I would say the Dust would be faster then. You could put a hot .40 piped say a Jett or GRRT in the nose and hit the 180- 200 mark with no problem. These speeds are a norm with this type of set up for the dust.

The Arrow is a big ole bus, its just to fat to considered fast, its more of a sport/funfly. The dust with a 36 will beat it, and probably be more fun too
