    Default Fun Fact

    A dragon flies at 45.32 MPH (74.16 KPH) when at the most efficient flying angle. (When you middle-mouse-click and drag your camera to look all the way down)

    However, when flying straight forward and /almost/ flapping, you fly a 31mph (50kph).

    I did a sort a proportion (1/124 = x/45.32) and figured out that for every 1 Velocity gained, you fly an additional 0.36548387096774193548387096774194 mph.

    I've heard of bipeds that run around 220+ speed. I'm going to estimate that speed is the same as velocity.

    220 * 0.37 (rounded) = 81.4.

    So bipeds can run around 81mph. (130 kph)

    I find this highly amusing.
    *goes back to calculating the size of Istaria*

    Edit: Flying upwards, you fly at 8mph (13 kph)

    The size of Istaria from the North to the South is 28km.

    Pluto is around 2200 km in diameter.

    Pluto is smaller than our moon.

    Istaria is tiny if that is the entire planet.

    It isn't. There is also, at the least, the Eastern Continent.

    Anyway, this is a delightful thread. Thank you for sharing your findings!

    That's true.. I didn't really think of that.

    I'm glad you like it ^^ I'm finding it amusing figuring things out.
    (I wonder if I can find out the size/proximity of the moon...)

    then Istaria continent is the size of the city of Columbus, Ohio.
