Breaking the speed limit

#1

The drone code limits how high we can fly, along with how far (VLOS). What they don’t restrict, is how fast we can fly. So with that in mind, just a bit of fun, what’s the fastest you’ve ever flown your drone? :grimacing:

Post as many entries as you like, no limit on how old the flight was (or how recent). Only one of each make/model aircraft will occupy the leaderboard :slight_smile: Entries must be screenshots of Airdata, DJI GO or whatever app your drone flies with that records / proves your speed.

Members worldwide are able to participate and will earn the Speed Freak badge if they beat a current position on the Leaderboard, but only UK members will featured on the Leaderboard.

Inspire 1 hit 42.6mph on my maiden flight with it :open_mouth: No wind either… If no one beats this with an i1 then I’ll be back to challenge own title once I’ve gotten used to it :wink:

So!

I’m guessing it won’t be long before someone has knocked me off both those # 1 slots :blush:

#5

Who’ll have the fastest Spark to sit on the leaderboard?

Fastest Phantom 3? 4?

And the inevitable I guess… who’ll be the first to knock me off the Mavic Pro top slot :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m sure my entry won’t stay #1 for long.

Right … hack the MP parameters and find a WINDY day. :+1:

Edit: I have a second reason for building a cheap (aka disposable) MP, now! LOL

Weight reduction, bigger motors, bigger props …… :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m well down 36.4
I was a bit shocked though to see 2 flights on the same day in June in excess of 1000ft high.
I think I’d only just stopped using beginner mode.

Looks like 30 m/s on graph but I’ll call it 29.5 to be safe.

Works out as 106.2 km/h or 65.9mph

I can see an imminent post from @callum
“There I was … 68mph wind … so I could just get home … steep dive downwind …. 150mph” :wink:

I only wish the racing drone recorded speed :wink:

I’m expecting to be knocked off the top by a phantom or inspire downwind in ATTI mode.

Time for a little tracker on the racer! :wink:

People used to attach them to their P2s … great data capture, actually.

One of these …


I’m sure it’s possible to hook it up to most things … mainly just power and GPS links, I think. Got close to getting one, but didn’t bother in the end.
