My kit 486 is not flying yet but I will post numbers as I remember them from intro flight with Vic and Harrison.

cruise around 90

slow flight around 35

landing around 75'

Just getting the feel for the plane not testing performance

Have you posted a photo of your Oratex covered SS? I don't recall seeing it. If not I would like to see a photo. Love the product. Wish there were some better colors. Joe B

Just noticed there are no votes on the poll since mine, is it still working - can any of you still vote or is it closed?

I saw 22 knots on my gps yesterday on my downwind leg. I'm not looking inside too much when I get slow and low
