Electro speed with world record
|458 forum posts|
Well, as I was quite active in control line flying, many years ago, I was quite 'electrified' when I saw that one of the very few events this year was the Swiss championship in Electro speed, class F2G. This class is only about 8 years old and maybe not so famous up to now, but I was really surprised! There were only 4 contestants, but the event ended with a world record of 302 km/h, and the 'slower' ones were not much in behind. This is even more astonishing because these motors have only about half the power of the best 2.5 ccm I.C. engines.
