Default Parkzone Typhoon Speed

I e-mailed Parkzone and asked them a question and the answer was, that they didn't know the answer. I was looking for an approximate speed for the following. If anyone has a good guess or knows the real numbers that would be great.

All of this assumes 0MPH wind (i know that never happens but you get the idea).

What is the typhoon's stall speed at level flight.
What is the maximum speed with the slow and power prop (using either battery type).

Any other speed numbers you may have related to the typhoon would be great.

Default RE: Parkzone Typhoon Speed

From my experience few people ever put a radar gun on moel aircraft to check speed. There are lots of variables, course that being an RTF plane I guess some of variables, motor, battery and such can be eliminated. None the less they probably don't know for any of their planes. Most of us talk about stall speed and such as slow or fast which is completely subjective IMO. It probably has a fairly low stall speed in level flight though based on the type of plane it is, but higher than flat foam foamies I'd bet.

Put the radar to the Typhoon when we were clocking a jet. Typhoon with stock drive train and a 3c 2100 flew at 62 MPH at a slight decent.

Thanks to everyone for the answers.

I have since had some more time to fly the typhoon. And as my first model (i know a bad choice for a first model) I am really enjoying it and getting the feel of it very quick.
