$80 Radar Gun

In a couple of Hobby King videos - Don mentions and uses a radar gun ... ie Parkjet high speed mod video is one ...

I've looked on HK site and cannot find the RG ... which he himself mentions is $80. Judging by that parkjet videop - it also works .... unlike the RG I found via another site and RCmodelreviews looked at - that is very poor and needs model flown at it VERY close to work .. too close in fact.

Anyone any idea where this elusive HK radar gun is ?

Have you looked into this one?

I've used it for sporting events, but never for RC stuff.

The Busnell works OK. I have had one for five years or so. You have to get the plane flying directly at it, which can be somewhat intimidating.

The biggest thing is that when I bought it, I ran around shooting everything, then the "neatness" wore off and now it just takes space in a drawer doing nothing.

Good club investment, but not personal IMHO.

I've got the Bushnell RG and found if you place it up to your face and sight down it like you would a gun, it works very good and doesn't require the plane flying directly at it. I am able to stand at the pilots station and clock planes flying directly down runway center line and even on the far side of runway

Have you considered the RcSpeedo app for $3.00? It matched my eagletree how fast within 1mph several times.
