    Talk about moving, about how fast, do you think, this will travel the sky?
    Surely got to be well over 100mph

    Who knew, we could do this?
    Yeah, LOS, keep your eye on it, all all times... ;-)

    Simple trick: speed up video. I'll estimate this as going about 10 mph.

    Hahaha, yeah, you wish...it was doing 10mph just when he let it go...
    Then he throttled up, and it disappeared. ;-)
    That thing is pretty a blazing isn't it... ;-) All battery, rotor blades and motors.

    Wonder how many Cells it's running on here.

    Yeah, I don't hear him chewing gum either.
    What is there to say? Ah oh yeah, "Weeeeeeeeeee!"
    I wouldn't be talking either, just concentrating. Heavily.

    The sounds is clearly sped up as well.amd he or a friend is happily videoing it. And there are moments the video jumps and is clearly edited.

    No, I think it's actually legit.
    There are pilots far beyond our capabilities.

    We know this to be true. And very fast craft as well. ;-)

    that I am sure is clever and difficult to do but its just too fast and 'out of control' looking to appreciate it imo!

    That's a real video. He did a full build thread on it over on RC Groups. It's designed for 3S (or 4S) battery and he's running 6S. It won't last long but while it does WOW is an understatement.

    I bought a Blade Mach 25 a few weeks ago - that thing rips through the sky scary fast. Supposedly 60 mph is capable out of the box with no mods, and I believe it!

    The LOS rules should not be applicable to racing drones, and will eventually be tweaked to reflect that I hope. The FAA should have no problem if they are flying a course 10-15 feet AGL and not out in an open sky. They are built to race on a course, not to carry a camera and fly in the open sky.
