She looks just like the real thing! Keep up the great build, now put a 35cc in here or a set of inlines and it might keep up with mine

Great detail on yours, the dash is very cool too. I don't know if my heart could take the stress of having a QD, I some times break into a sweat with what I have.

Hey JT, I ran my 56' Viper Apache today for the first time with the 25 quickdraw installed and achieved 92km/hr out of it , I'm very happy with it but still not as fast as the 35. I'll download some action shots soon.

I have an early production Expresscraft 70 inch Apache that I used to run every weekend. It is powered by an International R/C modified 30cc watercooled Homelite with pipe.(I know it is way dated as far as engines go now but at the time the zenoah was still relativly newto the market.)I radared it at a top speed of 41 mph. I always had fun with it but just haven't made time for it. The only prop that it responded well to was an Octura X482 2 blade. I tried many others at the time but not much was available then. I will have to try to post some pics of it.

Do you know what speeds you are getting out if it, have you run a Gps or put a radar gun on it.
