When its all patched up, crank it out to full throttle before sending it skyward before rolling over into a full throttle diving pass and rein it in as the flutter evolves Its fun and quite predictable. Last weekend I had a friends GPS logger riding shotgun on my Zephyr's left wing. Top speed was 83mph. Flutter, reliably comes into play anywhere above 80mph. This is when I back off a little throttle and start to climb out for another pass. Strangely enough my Dynamic-S achieved only a few km/h less with power off vertical dives without any flutter issues, and my Vampire which I thought was quicker than the Zephyr came in with the same speeds as the Zephyr. The noise that the Zephyr and Vampire create makes them seam faster than they actually are, and the Dynamic-S passes with just a cool whistle i'm loving all three ATM
