Absolutely that was 400mph.
Amazing flying & to the person who said he had to turn around or be out of range, well 2.4 gig recievers and radios are solid up to 2.5 miles away.
No he had to turn or lose sight of it, in fact I was amazed he was'nt more worried of losing it in the cloud because 2-3 seconds in cloud & you can so easiy loose orientation & never recover.
Amazing
Um .. Behind you...

Although, I feel I should point out that fighter pilots travel faster then 400mph and have no problem when it comes to reaction/reflex time.

we are talking about remote control planes. i dont know if the video claims to be 400mph in actual speed or scaled speed.

UPDATE: ok just found out they were talking about scaled speed. it was actually going at around 150mph.

Seemed much faster than that.

edit: Yeah, where did you get that info from?

This is the description on their youtube channel for that video:

"Radio controlled jet powered by a Jetcat P160 SE.
On the 23rd of May, this Jet has been lasered @ 586 KpH
Which makes it a 366 MpH plane..."

How is this scaled?

Ha, I guessed E1M5 when I saw this, but I was wrong and close!

I think I played DOOM on 14.4k modems (setup.exe?) directly back then. I never got to try LAN. I did try SirDOOM (think Dwango) on a MajorBBS (The Jungle 2 Online). I had Kali too, but I don't think I did it with DOOM. We even played my DOOM 2 mods: http://zimage.com/~ant/antfarm/files/doom2/j2doom/j2doom.html ... Fun times.

heheh I remember joining BBS' that were for DOOM tourneys only. Setup the game to listen for incoming call........awesome.
Yep, wasn't that done through setup.exe?

LOL! Yeah that's about right.

I still have WAY more fun with Doom and Quake today than I do with 99% of modern FPSes, which are for braindead morons with ADD it seems. Playing "find the key" is a lot better than the BS modern games do. Don't even get me started on health regen.

It's a shame because the FPS genre used to be my fav.
Ditto. Get off our lawns, younglings.
