I don't know your wife so I won't argue, though mine is very smart, but more importantly, she's bought me my last 3 prop planes and given me the go ahead on another jet purchase this last winter

But none of that really matters, cuz my plane is faster LOL

It's way to fast to photograph, and even if I could, there isn't an internet connection fast enough to show my fast airplane

hahaha

In case anyone has taken this thread seriously, I just wanted to post about my fast airplane because I after reading through a few threads again where people are claiming certain speeds, and others are calling them on it, and people are dead set in their mathematical calculations on theoretical speed etc, I just wanted to let everyone know, my airplane is faster!

Really, just close your eyes, use your imagination, and you'll see that my airplane is faster LOL

Want to give us any of the secrets for going so fast? Airframe? Motor? Being a better pilot?

I would take that bet, A Q40 plane will out accelerate a 7 sec car from a dead stop :P I've got a couple jets that I think could do the same thing :P

Although a 7 second car is wicked fast, but I can buy a lot of super fast toy airplanes for the cost of one 7 sec car hahaha, oh, and I can crash my toy airplane and walk away without much fear too :P

Airframe is no big secret, here's a picture of it at top speed

Motor again is no secret, here's a picture of it at full rpm

Mine just disproved the theory of relativity.

I'm not sure how long it took though, since the atomic decay slows near the speed of light.
