Default Revolver a speed plane?

FYI yesterday I clocked my TT pro 61 powered revolver at 100MPH straight and level 118MPH in a dive with a direct crosswind. Anyone else gettin good speed with them?
PS APC 11x7

My rev has a jet 90 Lx 11x8=147MPH with onboard gps straight and level.
I flew in a 35 mph wind the other day, it is not relaxing, but this plane whoops it up, and can still be put down safely, that wind makes the downwind leg faaaast !
I have read on 'the' revolver forum on here, of a 12 cell elec revolver doing late 150's, personally I do not doubt this claim for a second.

very nice, you don't need to go any faster then that for a thrilling sport plane. How worried are you about folding the wing?

wonder how long that landing is going to hold up. mine just cracked, AGAIN, after only 20 flights. otherwise as the video shows (152mph), its a well made plane.
