Claimed top speed of 468mph which is approx 210 metres per second. Blink at the wrong time and it'll be out of sight. Must be getting towards compressibility effects if it goes much faster?

Crikey.

Eagle eyes pilot!

Or FPV (and spotter?) I guess.

Not that a spotter would be much use if the FPV went wrong...

Pilot seems to be flying LOS to me? No goggles around his neck before launch, or after.

Faster with a glider

That's great Josip.

It could save a lots of problems with the Wife/Girlfriend/Partner/Significant other.

Flying at that speed you could get to the flying field, have half a dozen flights, and be back home to the domestic chores within the hour.

Haha, yes you do not get to those speeds without a good deal of preparation.

I like the vertical fin bases enclosing the elevon pushrods. Gotta try that sometime.

Certainly looks like it - LOL. Well spotted. With the prevalence of smart phones and vid capable cameras about, you really have to assume that you are under constant surveillance these days.
