They're alot of fun, super tiny and easy to use.
I tried the other setting today and it was much better quality.
Noontime Demo flight featuring Greggs F-16 and Genes VectorII.
Also Dwnlded into Genes laptop there.
Bob dopplered it for me on the Vectors best pass. 156.5mph
Dang good considering its short 2 cells.
I'm at a friends house but I'll try get a vid up by tomorrow night unless Gene
edits one first(which is fine by me!)

Bruce on the Vector pass i laid on the throttle just as I entered the pattern, next time I'll have to be on the throttle for one lap and do the pass, and also see what she does on a power dive pass... ooh and I check again and I was getting 158.9mph, and that is with temp at 72 degrees, i'm sure it was a bit higher with the temp that day being around 80, and with temp adjustment i'm getting 160.09mph

BobV kindly did the doppler on the spot for me. It's adjusted for altitude,temp,and airdensity at Apollo field that day, thats the difference in the speeds we got.
Regardless, It's faster then that. It was still accelerating when it went by.
