Default RE: GP Patriot 40 Kit Build

The speed isn't as fast as you wouild think but still slightly faster than an Ultra Stick.
As far as speed goes it depends on what you want to spend.... $$$$$$$ = speed .... In the extreme speed prop planes forum there
is a thread with a patriot 40 that hit 170 mph. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_6693939/tm.htm
A peson that I fly with has a YS 60 with a pipe on his and his was clocked on radar at 151mph. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_6617477/tm.htm
So it all depends on what you want ,how fast you wanna go, and how much you are willing to spend to get there.
Good luck and keep up the good work.
