Default Spool up times for Rhino and Super Eagle???

Those of you that own either/both the eagle or rhino, would you post your spool up times from idle to full?

Thanks

I posted this here as it would get more exposure and I have yet to get a response in the mfg. forum.

noahb..... Sean Reitmeyer of Austin used to have a couple of each and Ibelieve they were both no worse than about 3 sec or so from idle to full blow. He doesn't get on here anymore but many of us saw him operate the bigger motors for hundreds of flights.

I would agree with the above statements.... about 3 sec for both with the Rhino perhaps a tad faster than the eagle.
