I have been out fooling around with Mavic on full throttle in Sport mode. This video documents the result and will at the same time show how to enable Sport mode in case you don't know.

How fast have you pushed your Mavic?

Fastest I've seen is 66 km/hr (±). But I don't spend a lot of time wide open in S mode.
Seems similar to my result ;-)

Fastest I've reached is 71.5kph with a fairly good tail wind. Normally reach 52/60kph on a there and back with light winds, so I guess that averages out at 56kph.
Most of my flying is slow, though. Good for video.

There is probably 8 existing threads on this same subject.
 
This was in a strong tailwind. You can fool the top speed limiter for a short while by first going full whack forward then you fly diagonally while at the same time slightly yawing left and right, sounds ridiculous but works.

My top speed displayed on the app (73.5kph) was a GPS glitch - flying past radio masts at ski-boat club house, GPS compass etc all went off, I slowly flew towards me in ATTI mode, 20 seconds and 50m later everything turned on, mavic position on map jumped 50m and gave me a nice high speed reading!

Fastest true speed (as stated earlier) was 71.5kph
 
Because I'm not really in to going very fast (I have two motorbikes for that) I didn't watch the video. Until now. And I have a problem with those "test" videos. Makes the most of us look like idiots. I never knew that the small switch on the side was the sportsmode toggle switch. Or that a Mavic flies slower against the wind???? A new world opens with those videos.
Hmmmm, maybe I should stop reading the manual and only watch totally unnecessary instruction videos
