My 100mph Quadcopter Attempt12:31

Thanks to Brandon, JD and Scott for the support and bravery (lol). Thanks to Emax for supplying the motors, Tattu Battery for the awesome powerful batteries.

This was scary! Flying 100mph at yourself is risky business! I should have listened to Scott who was urging me to fly behind us and fly out from us instead of towards us. His radar gun reads both ways! I think I was just distracted and nervous. Sorry there was no onboard footage from the record run- I forgot to turn on my dvr.

Why does my setup work? I think it’s the combination of a lot of factors. First the frame has super skinny 5mm arms, this allows the least wind resistance and stiffness at the same time. Second, my esc’s are the same width as the arms adding to the aerodynamics profile. Third, the motor distance is only 195mm bringing the blades very close together. Fourth, the new Emax RS 2205 S give amazing thrust to weight ratio. These motors are lighter than the previous generations and give 100g more thrust per motor. Finally the RaceKraft 5051×3 props are just amazing at this thrust level. They fight blade flattening very well- these props are just on another level!
