David is flying a Spitfire, modified with it's wings chopped off.
David is using a huuuuge motor, the NTM 35-36A 1800Kv motor from Hobby King, with an 8 x 8 prop.
Josh is flying a new scratch build designed called the FT Versa Wing.
Both airplanes are equipped Airspeed Microsensors from Eagle Tree Systems.
This Airspeed System features Pitot tube that records the actual airspeed and will record the fastest speed and display it on the led screen. The Spitfire David is flying is one that was featured in the Review Episode. In the background you can see the FT Versa wing and a few other wing setups that Josh will be testing out later.
The Spitfire is FAST! It's excited to see a scratch build plane maneuver so well at such speeds.
This speed challenge is a response to viewers requests to see David and Josh fly their fastest scratch built designs.
Time for the FT Versa wing to go up. After a few slow passes, Josh decided to attach David's Power Pod.
The Versa wing was fast as well! But it handled great!
The FT Versa Wing was designed to be fast but also to be versatile in how it can be setup.
It can be setup to be a pusher, or FPV plane, a combat plane and more! Stay tuned for more on this wing!
Special thanks to Eagle Tree Systems for sending out the Airspeed Microsensor!
