    What is the fastest speed anyone got on a windy day. I did 68mph with a 25 mile wind. [​IMG]

    There is only 2 Top Speed Flight passes in this video. The 66mph flight consisted of a 24mph tailwind. The said part was it was not lined up a 100% with the direction of the wind. I may of had an additional 2-2.5mph added to the top speed had it been straight. When lining up for the direction you want to go, there is not anyway, yet, to lock the direction. I do have a decent method for lining up prior to the holeshot. The problem is there is no measurable option to come back to before each start. So it turns into a best guess situation.

    Btw, I'm open to anyone that can figure out how to get me a copy of their fastest flight to put together a dashware video for free. The only stipulation is it has to be either 760p@30fps or 1080p@30fps.

    Yeah if you can figure out how to compress it, or upload it somewhere that I can then download it. If that can happen then we'd be good. Personally I think the compressing option is not possible.
