I'd bet the fastest ET will win or is this different in that it is the fastest speed at the end of a distance.
Is it just like car drag racing or different in some way?

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

Well I saw one go 113 so I figure there's a person out there that may just find the sweet spot, and they've been practicing a little bit.

It's not how fast it is...it's how high can it go?

Don't you guys know these things by now.

Gassers Rule, Nitros Drool, Electrics...uhhh...Joule?

Yes 113mph. That's why I asked you how you were clocking yours just to see if it was on the same page.

Wow..... impressive. Didn't think those heavy spectras could move that fast :-)

Guess I better get back to tweaking if I want to have a chance.

I never said it was a Spectra G or that it was mine. I just said I saw a gasser at the 113 mark. BTW like yours it was clocked with GPS & 2 radar gun and all three were within 1% of each other. So I'm pretty confident that the number was fairly accurate.

I think your tweaked pretty good right now.

And there it is. Can't have a discussion without you guys making negative personal comments.

Considering the competition and who you tend to.run with.... I am pretty confidential it was a spectra :-).

What are you talking about "negative comments" I don't know you and you don't know me. The tweaked reference was to your earlier post about speed and your level of secrecy about it. For the record the heli was an RJX flybarless. Sparx your a real piece of work. no doubt about it.

Who do you think I run with?

Absolutely.

Do you doubt that a gasser can do it, or are you calling me a liar?
