OK - updated, and rounded, to 2 decimal places of MPH - recalculating from KPH/MPS where that was the visual evidence.

#66

I wanna get out on a good day and really give it some, but I have managed to up my personal best.i want 44 but that’s gonna be a tough one lol


#67

Updated your marginal improvement on the leaderboard. :+1:


#68

Well I just went out and flew the Spark, Mavic, Phantom 4 and Inspire in the wind, didn’t seem to be getting anywhere so didn’t bother with the P4P, got home to find I got two quicker speeds with the Phantom 4 and the Inspire :open_mouth:
I think when Rich does some mods I won’t be there for long.
The Mavic was very disappointing.


#69

Leaderboard updated!


#70

Did you fly the p4 and inspire in ATTI?

I couldn’t get more than 41mph out MP, even with a 20mph tail wind. They have the gps speed locked down pretty well.

Suppose that’s where sport+ comes in or ATTI on the phantoms.


#71

Yes, tried everything, I also only got 41 mph out of the Mavic.
The only modded one is the Mavic.


#72

ok…0,7km overstated


#73

Which model drone was that? … and why/how overstated?

Edit: OK - got the answer to both! :+1:


#74

I think it is an Inspire 2 Dave, he posted further up the page about post 50


#75

We have a new leader of leaders!! @Maredich with his Inspire 2

Leaderboard updated!


#76

NoLimitDronez pushed the end speed a bit


#77

Looks like I have got to find somewhere with a real tailwind!!!


#78

Just been checking the specs and it seems DJI claim a top speed of 42.5 mph for the Mavic Air but some have claimed 44+, so it seems it’s doable @Monstermavic :+1:


#79

Just got find some air with a steep slope in it. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!


#80

Yes and as you say, need to get the right wind etc.surprisingly today had little wind, though it might be somewhat different at the right altitude
