Big news! I've broken the record for the fastest RC car powered by a jet engine!
Here is the full video showing the story of our record-breaking weekend that saw the first Project Air video to get a Guinness World Record achievement - hopefully the first of many to come!
First Run: speed = 94.76mph (Official Record set beating 93mph previous record)
Second Run: speed = 137mph (nose detached, didn't count as a record)
Third Run: speed = about 120mph (crash due to strong crosswind)
The full story:
The video above was actually the last in a series of videos from 2023 showing my 2023 RC jet car build, testing and record attempt, following on from a previous car build in 2022 which served as a very crude prototype to learn how to operate a jet powered RC car. Here are all the videos in order.
Part 1: The build
Part 2: Testing at a racetrack
Part 3: The Llanbedr record attempt at ROSSA
