Congratulations and thanks for sharing that video. I've never seen DS where the pilot stands at the bottom on the dark side. Very interesting. Makes me consider possible new DS sites

Always cool to see the 2 meter faster than the 100".
What Gyro are you using?

Thanks,

in both planes I used the integrated stabilization system from the Jeti REX6 (Assist) receiver.

My flew with the K100 was the second, so it was not the perfect setup for this moment.

VV Models Sonet F3B Layup


I figured I should post these speeds-

I remember being really impressed that an 81 Oz, absolutely stock, F3B layup Sonet went 207 mph at Weldon back in September.

Date: 9/7/19
Pilot: Josh Roth
Plane: Sonet F3F
Location: Weldon
Speed: 207 mph
Witness: Bruce Tebo
Radar: Stalker Pro 2
Gyro/DCS?: NO

Well.. She just went 216 mph at Parker. I had multiple flights on Tuesday with many speeds in the 200's. 215 came up a few times. The Sonet really is an amazing airplane – Great craftsmanship Vaclav!

Date: 2/25/20
Pilot: Josh Roth
Plane: Sonet F3F
Location: Parker Heights
Speed: 216 mph
Witness: Bruce Tebo
Radar: Stalker Pro 2
Gyro/DCS?: NO

Vaclav makes a few different layup options


There is a bit of overlap between the F3B Strong and F3F Light versions. Here's the composition of this particular model:

#1. F3B strong double carbon

Wings: carbon 90g/m2 / herex / carbon 90g/m2
Big V-tail - carbon 30g/m2 / herex / glass 17g/m2
Wing beam - Carbon DIALEAD

Here's a link to Vaclav's site in case anyone wants to learn more about the Sonet. Wayne at Aloft Hobbies is the local distributor.

Well done Alex and Scott! Which way was it from? Would have been pretty ass puckering if it was from the usual direction, not the biggest of sites!
