    My top speed is 80.4 mph. I was about 400ft high and I guess I hit a headwind. It really just depends on the wind but make sure your props are balanced. Dubro 499 and a rod for p4 blades are fairly cheap.

    You will need a good tail wind , GO shows I hit 89mph but I think that is too high, GO is off by at least 10mph and more.

    I've found speed is maxed when:

    I'm flying high
    I'm flying directly with tail wind
    I'm flying level but ground is uphill
    I'm approaching and going over a line of trees
    I'm flying straight, no turns
    I'm in ATTI
