Some light relief for locked down pilots

The video in the OP is dated from 2016 and the Germans have "speed competitions" every year, so I guess people have been trying to go faster ever since. I watched one video which showed a RC heli doing 193 mph through the time trap - a very interesting sound from the rotors!
Makes the 180mph at the top of the climb with my F5B models seem very pedestrian. This video shows me launching a friends model in 2015.
Some people just love pure speed and all they want is to go faster all the time. With F5B we have the challenge of after doing the fast bit, as shown in the video, we go straight into a 10 minute thermal duration without landing - best of both worlds really.
