Sorry Kip, I have to disagree, a QM40 airframe today with a strong sport 40 would likely be faster. While that airframe is sleek, the wing is still on the thick side from the looks of the picture, big bulbous canopy, constant chord wing, might be fast with a Formula one engine, but if you're going to go through that hassle, there are faster airframes out that are easier to attain.
I'm not trying to argue, but a 40 year old design won't compete with a current speed plane.

Re: Fast Plane "HELP"

The GO-GO Fly wing is very thin, around 9% with a 40% high point and a reflex T/E and it looks better than those boxy things they use now. Back in the late sixties when I was "Rat Racing " on control lines we were using those yellow Tornado nylon props, to stop them from beaking we use to boil them. One of our members use to put them in a twist jig after he boiled it. We were all turning about 15,000 rpm and he would turn about 2500 rpm less and he was going faster than we were, hence the prop rpm statement.

Re: Fast Plane "HELP"

Hi Kip,
I certainly won't argue that the Go-Go Fly looks better than a Quickie 500, it definitely does, in fact, it's one of the prettier airplanes I've seen. RPM and prop choice does make a huge difference of course, but what I was getting at, was in this instance, where Jack and the rest haven't set an airframe or engine requirement, that airframe selection will be more vital than anything at first
It's ok though, because I'm hooking Jack up, and those other guys will be bouncing around like Turkey's will Jack will be the Peregrine Falcon, smooth and faaaaaaaaaaaaaast.

By the way, cool name, one of my all time favorite singers from the 80's is named Kip
