It went better than well! 509km...  316mph.. Beat the 441kmh electric record, and beat my own 502kmh jet record. It is (unofficially) the fastest FPV plane in the world!! So outrageously happy, I can't put it into words!! It's been a long road...

Fantastic stuff Rupert, that's really awesome.

Very, very hot, but it didn't smell! Should be good for some more runs. Battery wasn't too bad either, landed at 40% which is a nice safe spot with a few go-arounds. The next mission will be to get some low altitude footage.. it's going to be a pretty massive thrill!
