Fast prop planes

Hey guys,
Anybody flying any fast prop planes? I'm about to start putting together a 15 size Shrike. I have an RJL 15 and a K&B 18,
so either of these is a good candidate for it. I think it should be pretty fast.
What's the fastest you've flown?
Andrew, did you fly your little missile this weekend?

Fastest were a a series of FAI pylon racing planes I built in the 70s using K&B rear rotor intake Dykes ring .40s,a pressure tap from the crankcase to the tank ,Bisson flow through mufflers and 9x8 toothpick props.The engines had no effective carbs and absolutely screamed on straight alky and oil fuel.No idea how fast they were......we were too busy hanging on and turning left! We used metal tanks with the pickup soldered to the floor of the tank.You turned the motor off for landing by flipping inverted until the engine quit,and then deadsticking.......buggers would glide forever with the engine out cause they were so clean with fully cowled engines, thin sharp LE wings,and profile wheels etc.......!.

Fodder's Extra was doing well over 300 mph, just a second before impact

Can't compete with Kevin on the FAI pylon but my Rossi .40 powered SkatKat was pretty quick... until the elevator linkage blew.

Check it out here: (3rd from teh bottom)

I Have a Viper almost ready for the rebuilt Rossi but, alas Ajax doesn't fly pylon anymore.

Yeah, I flew that 15 size snot rocket a few weekends ago before the weather got so cold! Read thethread in the planes section...

It was awesome! Fast and due to the small size, seems even faster! My pylon props are finally on their way from great hobbies, so I wil try and tune the engine/pipe for the 6.5-6.5 or 6.5-6.

I also flew a wonder for a # of years thats also a fast plane with a hot engine, but they can be touchy even on low rates. I prefer a "traditional" type plane for smoother flying.

1/2A to giant scale, IMAC, SAM, R/C sport, turbine jets, Heli's...
if its got a wing or two and an engine - I like it!
