Breaking the speed limit


#122

@milkmanchris Is that with sport+?

Do you think wind will help? or would it not still be GPS speed limited, just higher?


#123

I think your probably right with GPS limit been hit, I’m gonna geek a bit and see if I can eek a little more jiuce out of it


#124

I still think the best solution is a long holiday in the Caribbean and wait for a hurricane.
There’s no way it will be GPS limited in 150mph wind!
And I improve my suntan at the same time. A consolation for losing the MP. :wink:


#125

You having withdrawals from lack of sun Dave? :rofl:


#126

I’m fading! LOL!

I also love the Caribbean!
I’m also fascinated by extreme weather … and since the hurricane missed me last time I was there, I thought I’d give them the chance of another hit. LOL


#127

WOW, i havent tried ‘Sport Mode’ yet on my Air.


#128

Just clocked up 43.4mph with the Air, still not enough!! :rocket:


#129

Spark …nearly …Max Speed
33.55 mph, will try again when the rain stops


#130

Oooo … that’s close!


#131

So GADC beat them too it!!!:joy::joy:

And it seems the Brits have quicker drones than the Yanks, but don’t tell ‘em, they will only sulk :wink:

Some footage of the inspire2 as well


#132

The lucky bugger was given the Inspire 2 by one of his fans :open_mouth:


#133

So - it could be a real dash to get the first, and the fastest, speed for an M2P with all these new purchases! :+1:

No mods available yet, either, so it could be a real close thing.

Well tried a few times with the spark…only managed 33.76
Gutted


#135

I didn’t find much downhill wind for my MP, either.


#136

40 minutes remain in the Poll a few posts above!


#137

I still can’t believe nobody has claimed a MP2 slot yet!!

No Tello entries there either? Not sure if they record/display their forward speed though? :thinking:


#138

I believe only 1 has flown so far, and I think that was a quick up/pics/down flight yesterday afternoon.


#139

Took the Inspire for a spin this morning to get a feel for it out a bit further, went out about 300Mt tuned into the wind agave her full forward stick.
First attempt.


#140

Hardly any wind today


#141

I must get out and have a few more attempts, too. But today is certainly a “no wind assistance” day.
