    Depends upon what altitude you want to achieve and the lift angle you set the doors at. There is an Easter Egg buried in the Ludicrous screen to achieve liftoff. :scared:

    I've had mine up to 35 mph. I wouldn't advise going any faster than that for fear of messing up the door alignment.

    Hey, Jack! Looking at your avatar (next gas 163 mi), I was wondering how far it might be to next outlet! 220 AND 110.
