Heli Speed Flying Results

Unread post by thefrog »

There seems to be a small but growing interest in speed flying with helis. Peraps we should post our results in this thread until the formal MHSA interest group comes into effect.
The rules are simple - provide a photo, data log or similar as proof of the speed reached. I don't suppose we'll worry about whether it was in a dive or straight line for now as this is for fun, not FAI stuff. :D

Let me know if anyone gives a damn.
