Default Best AP Ship Buildup

If money was no object....what ship would you build? I would like to start a new build and need to think outside the box. I need a stable ship to fly fast 35-45mph for 6-8 minutes. I'm struggling with finding a solid platform to hold up long term flying at these speeds.

Thanks in advance for all the help.

I fly a t-rex 700 and get around 7 minutes flying at 60_ 70 kilometers/hour, vey stable.

Right now I'm finishing a Gaui x7. looks very solid.

Here's some shots from the t rex 700 flying at 70 km/hour

Logo 600 stretch or gaui x7 just barely behind it in smoothness. If you need spare parts at times and want min downtime for repairs the trex 700/800 but you sacrifice smoothness. Or if money is no object contact bergen helis.

Craneman, this video is very smooth. Can you post the hardware you are running on your 700?

Thanks Craneman, very smooth at high speeds is exactly what I'm looking for. What gimbal stabilization are you using?
