31 is my guess. Help us out and let us know how fast you have clocked the Pole Cat.

Also, what kind of batteries did you fly?

So here's my last 10 readings held in memory on my pocket radar all taken on my last radar run done Sat. Afternoon without landing gear,,, they're in order from last to first, so first number you see is plane gliding in power off. The rest were done in relatively calm conditions but with an Ocassional puff of wind possibly up to 4-5 mph ,, tried to have my wife take the reading when plane was close and coming straight at us. So here they are straight off the memory of the pocket radar

15 mph
29
33
30
43
35
33

42

I have NO reason to make this up or lie. :-). It is what it is

Just a heads up for east coasters, I pretty much live in the middle of no where and should have my Spit tomorrow according to the tracking it's sitting in Greensboro NC so every one should have there's by Wed at the latest I would assume. I'm hoping this thing fly's great in a smaller area, I know I can fly my UM P51 in the backyard without too many worries. I'm thinking I'll maiden it at a local baseball field though just in case.

Please keep the reports coming in, my miniaviations are dying for more use (the P51 is in the middle of a body swap so they've only been feeding my little heli's and overkill on the Vapor)
