Default EF 1 speed

Have not been around (ANY) EF 1 pylon racers. I bought a POGO and would like to know what speed I am looking for?

Anyone out there used a radar gun to see the speed?

Thanks for the response. I was beginning to wonder if anyone would tell me.
At least now I have something to go by.

This is consistant with what I have seen as well. They are very close in speed to AMA 424 with Thunder Tigers on them.

ANOTHER QUESTION.
WOULD THE POGO BE COMPETITIVE COMPARED AGAINST ONE OF THE KIT BUILT RACERS?
READY TO FLY WITH A TURNIGY 2650 BATTERY, IT WEIGHS 3LB. 11OZ.
THE POGO SEEMS TO FLY OK ONCE IT IS AIRBORNE.

The Pogo does very well against any other EF-1 design.

I think that the kit built models however do have an advantage as they are built to weight and will be sanded and covered smoother than an ARF. I think that can be said for any type of racing event.

I would say practice and nail the takeoff and you will be right on track with anyone else.
