OK, doppler at 70 deg F shows LESS than 90 mph on those 2 passes in the first few seconds of the video.

So, I suppose you and Quique did get more speed than the stock "C" version (65 mph with a slight tailwind), but do you really think less than 90 is the place to be considering the FJ Ultra does over 120 in its stock form ??

I am done doing my "bad mouthing" of the new Stryker "Q", I guess I am just dissapointed in the "increased performance" of the "Q" version, as I was hoping for well over 100 mph in box stock form. I will still get 1 or 2 of them for easy flying, but I will keep the "C" for the speedsters, and probably look to Ritewing or the FJ Ultra for the newer, faster ones.
