l’Hydroptère has just crossed the mythical 50-knot barrier with an average speed of more than 51 knots over 500 meters. The data will be confirmed after the analysis of the measurements and will then be validated by the WSSRC. 25 knots of established wind and gusts at 28 knots were enough for l’Hydroptère to beat the absolute speed record. Happy Boys.
In the last run of the day the L’Hydroptere did 48.8 knot (56.12mph) one nautical mile run with a NEW 500m RECORD of 51.38 knots (59 mph). Peak speed of the day was 55.8 knots (64mph). On the wing! Photos by Gilles Martin-Raget. Jump in the thread here.
