    Had my fastest run ever with the P3 today, but only 54.67mph: https://www.flightreplay.com/mytracks/track/speed-test

    My old P2V was great - in similar conditions (18mph tailwind), I went 69.61mph a year and a half ago. The P3 is slower for sure. With the P2V+ I got to 61mph but never really tried it in stronger winds. We don't have strong winds around here often.

    Are you guys planning on including how much tailwind was included in your flight?

    Btw, these top speed flights are a big part of my hobby now. But I have had my quad grounded since the 26th of last month due to the firmware being jacked up. But...I actually believe I just fixed my 1.2.6. version issues all of them!!! If I did you can bet I will soon add some pic's and video. I have some now but it was just a shakedown flight and my 1st attempt with the P3P.
