All I can say is that GPS speed system is still very inaccurate!

See the speed claim that the same GPS unit has for this jet.

I have run doppler on this video and the into the winds passes are consistently ~100-105 mph and the downwind passes are in the 128-130 mph range which give a model speed in the 115 mph range.

Please do not get me wrong a 115mph Stinger is awesome and when in a 15 mph tailwind is even better but that GPS system does not give reliable speeds at all.
