Am looking for a super fast small electric such as the "Hacker VIP pylon racer" purely for out and out speed. The VIP is just an example already suggested, West London Models used to have them but no longer. So what eklse is there which would provide some serious adrenaline to compete with the Weston Magnum ic, Any thing considered!
many thanks

Hello Camel, Welcome to Wattflyer! There's quite a few fast Pylon Racers available, one that I've seen and was very impressed by, is here;
In the U.K. I found an ad here;
The Sokol is a little ROCKET! The one I saw had a Mega 16/15/3 and was as fast or faster than any other powered model airplane I've ever witnessed. Can't say I've seen many electric Pylon races but it's hard to believe they go much faster and are still (reasonably) easy to control.
The model is beautifully built, hollow-moulded, living hinges, slick finish, but it's tiny. You just can't let it get too far away, it disappears in a blink of the eye. If you try it, make sure you have a spotter, preferably one with good eyesight!
I'll bet there are faster models around but this one gets my recommendation!
Good Luck!
