Do you have to make more than one pass? And does the pass have to be horizontal?

Time to go horizontal, I already have the Canadian vertical pass record:

HPR (H - O) Impulse
160 - 40960 Ns
13413.03 m / 44006 ft
LDRS 24, July 17, 2005

The top speed on the upline was m=2.8 but the return pass took 9 minutes and landed over 5 miles away.



In the case of this aircraft however, I think the downline will be much faster than the upline. Esp. when the wings peel off..[:-]

Tom,
Two passes in each direction. Diving permitted...but the earth comes quickly!

How well do you know this fellow Evan?

Oh okay - I was thinking about Picco engines you see, and wondering if you had spelled the name a special way..

My son has a Blade MCX and it is a riot, I'm about as bad at helicopters as I am okay at airplanes. It's great fun tormenting the cats with it, although one has to be careful because even a lazy housecat is faster then the heli or the guy on the sticks.
