I reviewed this performance analyzer back in may last year. It hadn’t been out that long, not many people knew about it. Everyone was still using the older gsm 015 and gsm zero. One zero from sky rc for their speed runs and people still do use that, and some people prefer that kind of style where you can instantly see the readout on it. Whereas on this one, you can’t, i spent quite a bit of time making a um video on this doing. Some top speed runs with this i’ve done some naught to 60.. I also have my wr8 and i’ve done a speed run with the wr8 stock. Out of the box, and then i done a naught to 40 between this um on 6s and the wr8 on 3s. So i thought with it coming to summer, with the popularity of speed runs going way up in the last 12 Måneder. It was definitely time i think, to have another look at this on. Every single speed run video i’ve made since may last year. I always get a question or five on what i use for speed runs. I think one of the main reasons for that is because i always use this app and i think people presume that it’s a speed app on my phone. What it actually is, is this little performance module using the sky rc app on your phone to then record your speed and your acceleration and stuff like that.
Alligevel, this is a yeah i’ve re edited it i’ve taken my video from last year, i’ve taken a load of stuff out, det er, still quite long, but it’s quite an in depth. Video so i’ve taken some of the uh some of the dead space out of there uh tried to make it flow a little bit better and we’re gon na have a look at this performance analyzer. If you want to see more on this beast i’m going for the uk speed record this summer, um at the moment, i’ve got use of a real runway and this is painted up like an aircraft. So it only feels right to stick it on that runway and hopefully i still have use of it in the summer. If i do this thing, hopefully will be the fastest in the uk. I don’t think i can go for any world records at the moment, but i definitely think i can push for um one of the fastest out there anyway enjoy the rest of the video on the performance. Analyzer and i’ll see you with this in the stuff, and this thing takes it a little bit further than the uh, the old, faithful gsm 010. So i mean there’s a good indication of the size difference of them there. The only downside to that is there’s. No indication straight away, but it’s, very quick, we’ll talk about a minute. So in the packet you get yourself a little mini usb charger, just the backing card there and a comprehensive set of instructions, and this was really easy to set up and really easy to get going.
Didn’T. Take me long at all. So all your details, there of your status of your um, led, tells you on the back there how to do all your different recordings and stuff um. You can download from the app store or google play the app for it, which i’ll show you that in a minute as well so simple it’s got so. It says: gps and uh g, l, o n a s. It basically stands for global navigation satellite system. Det er. The same predominantly the same as gps. If you want to look a bit more into it and have a quick google of it, i think the reason for it being both is so. You’Ve got more more satellites out there when i was on there and it was looking for them. It finds them so quickly compared to this and you’re up and running ready to go really quick anyway. Let’S have a closer look in the app and i’ll show you some of the features it’s got so as soon as you open the app it comes on. So you’ve got your bluetooth connection there and then your power indicator there once it’s found satellites which is already done it’s now showing that it’s got four satellites if you’re outside when i was out early as you’ll see it found about 12. I think and you’ve got your drag and if you’re going to drag race, you can select speed and you can go from naught to whatever you want to go to or you have to start naught.
You can do like 10 to between 10 Og 60. If you want to do a rolling um speed and it doesn’t start recording until it hits the speed you set and it won’t stop recording until you hit that speed as well. So if you don’t hit 40, it will just keep going and then keep reading, and then you can also set if you want, if you don’t lose speed, you can set your distance, og så, if you’ve got like um point a to point b, you can do That so, when you put track um and press start, it will just start recording and press stop. Once you press stop you, then just press read and it will come up. This is going to come up with nothing, although it did say our average speed was a 17 mile i timen, but i think that’s from earlier so that’s the track and then i’ve not tested flying because i don’t have anything to fly with, but i presume this Will just tell you what your height and speed and stuff is. I think it records up to 25 000 feet or around that pretty high, oh sorry, 29 and a half thousand feet and that’s your flyer mode and, som jeg sagde, i’ve, not tested that. But it’s got your distance. Your time it says average speed and then it’s got the bottom there. So it’s got max height that is max height from ground level, rather than c level.
So if i press start again, if i lift this up there, we go look and then bring it back down. Stop read max height, zero feet, Um! Oh no! I said distance three feet, so we did go up, but obviously not high enough for it to record the max height anyway. That’S basic that’s, the basics of the app you’ve got some settings you can go into. You can change your a unit of measure from like miles an hour to kilometers an hour, there’s lots of other things you can do if i go into records you see, i’ve got all these that i was doing earlier. Um testing stuff let’s have a sneak peek at that one that one’s showing nought to 41.7 Sekunder 1.84 g we’ll. Look at that in a second but yeah, so you can log all your stuff. You can clear it. You can change the name and that’s about it. Really for the app so we’ve got the limitless with um infraction gearing so it’s got the 27 Tand. Pinion i’m, not sure what the spares i can’t remember off the top of my head running a pair of 3s um jen’s, ace 5000 milliamp time 50 c3s batteries and the 220 amp beast pro um esc the dx5c transmitter. So it’s going to do a top speed, run first see what it does with that gearing so it’s a 45 85 size motor 1580 kv. I think it’s brand it’s a rocket uh branded one, so not quite um as quick as the limitless uh stock motor, but it’s got a lot of torque that so i’m expecting as long as we get over 60 that’s fine, because i want to do some naught.
60 runs but anyway, top speed run. Første, the gps nicely positioned on the top. There doesn’t quite go in the middle because that dip, but nice and solid on there not taking up too much space and let’s get it fired up and see how fast this thing goes right. So when you first power on, then what you’re going to do is you’re going to wait for the satellites to start popping up and that’s the center there. You see seven up straight away and up to eight and it goes up to 12.. Once you’ve got your satellites and you want to start going, all you got to do is select what you want to do so we’re going to select, track and we’re going to press start i’m just going to run it. It will disconnect from the app when it goes, Jeg tror, det er, 10 foot or 10 Meter. It is still recording, though don’t worry, and on this run um. I have my brakes set to zero on the transmitter yeah. We had a bit of an issue, so you break set to zero. Luckily missed the tree, no damage just dug into the grass a bit anyway. We got 69 miles i timen, definitely a little bit more in it, so we gave it a second run right, remember to have the brake set had no brakes. I love the sound of this it’s got such a good sound to it. Let’S take a few.
More runs and then stop have a look and we’ve got 70 mil, an hour which i’m happy with 70 on this with the gear in and like i said, with the motor with the kv. So next i decided it’s time for some not to 60 times warm. The tyres up first Music, so what you need to do when you’re doing the naught to 60, obviously set it up on the app so we’re going to go zero to 60. and then, when you’re ready to go, you’ve got to make sure the car is completely Still it will start recording as soon as you start moving so make sure it’s completely still and then, when you’re ready to go hit, the throttle and it’ll start recording as soon as it hits 60 mile i timen. It will stop and it will log and the time so let’s have a look at the first run, really squirring around. That was trying to get traction and even though we warmed the tyres up now, when you’re ready press read and on this run, we’ve got 2.1 seconds to 16. It pulled 1.42 g’s, not bad for the first attempt. 2.1 seconds is pretty rapid, so gave it another. Try this time i mean you’ll, see on this one, the um 2.4 Sekunder, but looking at the graph, you can see um at the start. You see the acceleration of the red line. You can see where it starts to go and then it drops off and then it goes again.
That was because i was struggling for grip on that run and that you know it’s a slower time so i’d expect the slower time with that and that lack of grip and you can see on the blue speed line as well. It’S definitely not got that same curve, so let’s put them next to each other and you’ll see the uh. The one on the left is obviously the faster time and the one on the right, the slower time, and you can compare them to together and you can see. Look i mean the red. Acceleration is the key for that one. You can see why it was uh slightly slower, so tires are warming up nicely now, so we’ll go for another run, a bit more of a warm up, much better start, no squirring around that time and press read get the time off two seconds. I mean look at that. Look at the acceleration on that, as well as crazy acceleration and 2.1 g on that, and a two second naught to 60.. So final test for this, i don’t i don’t – want to get the motor too hot done one more test, but didn’t beat that two second time, 2.1 again so i’m going to put the graphs next to each other now and you can see this is what i Really like about this uh, this new performance analyzer, you can stick all your graphs together, you can compare them and if we look at them, we can see.
My fast is looking at the fastest time and the slowest time you can easily tell by that you can just tell there’s a lack of grip um on that 2.4. Anden, one i mean it’s 0.4, a second, så det er, not that bad. But looking at that graph, you can definitely tell they. Didn’T quite have the same uh, the same initial punch looking at that first one, the two second one that shoots straight up to a one and a half g in the first what’s that point three of a second, not bad anyway. That was the limitless right. Let’S get the wr8 around fits really nicely on the top of the shock tower and the braces on the back. Der, 3s lipo stock gearing 15t. I think it’s good for about 45, Måske 50 mile an hour so we’re doing naught to f we’ll. Do a top speed then we’re doing not to 40, compare it to the naught of 40 i’ve done on the limitless, so testing the wr8 out this thing isn’t as fast it’s, geared quite low at the moment, so just giving it a bit of a warm up. Jeg er, going to give it a top speed run make sure that we’ve been here. I wanted to do not to 40, so just making sure i can hit 40 with this. This hasn’t got abc or any stability or anything on it. So it’s uh, you gun it too quickly and it is all over the place Music, but we hit 43 mile i timen.
That is good enough for me, so now it’s time to set it up for a naught of 40 sprint. As you saw, the limitless got one point i think there’s one point was it 1.3 Sekunder: it was all over the place on this one and 2.8 seconds still pulling at 1.4 G. That was what the limitless pulled and it was struggling a bit for grip, and this pulled that same acceleration anyway gave it another try Music, this time, 2.3 seconds again, just struggling for grip off the uh off the get go so for the last run. I was a bit more gentle on the throttle and you’ll see the difference. I mean you can see straight away how quickly it just got off the line and the results will impress you. They impressed me anyway, 1.7 seconds to 40 1.84 G, and if you look at that acceleration, the uh like the red line there you can see, we got plenty of grip and off it went and the uh the times reflect that 1.7 for the wr8 put it Next to the limitless, considering that limitless is running 6s, the wr8 is running 3s. I don’t think that’s bad from that little hpi. Is it look at the acceleration on that limitless, though what an awesome curve that is loads of grip straight in there 1.3 seconds to 40. that’s it for this video guys cheers for watching. I hope that gave some of you speed freaks out there a little bit more information about this.
Even if you haven’t got the fastest car. Have you got the fast accelerating car? Have you got the best performing car? This is going to tell you be interesting to see someone stick this on a truck, take it to the skate park and see how high you can jump with it. That is something i haven’t tested in this video. I think that’s a job for those that like to send their stuff to the moon, not a job for me at the moment, Men, i am going to give it a test at the skate park. Cheers for watching, see you next time.
