    Congrats!! I assume you were still using the stock 8" props at the time? Atti mode or manual?

    yep standard 8" in Atti mode. I tried manual on a less windy day and its too much of a balancing act between upwards thrust and acceleration, well for me it was anyway.

    Well done! I think what's going on is that space-time is compressed in the UK, so a normal-speed run just appears exceptionally fast to a stationary observer. Kind of like what happens when we visit and exchange money into GPB.

    No El G... in the UK, they are used to running between the raindrops... so they are just born fast there; it's evolution at work.
