Gradient Golden 2 - Top Speed

by Mario
(South Africa)

I seriously question the given top speed of this wing (Gradient Golden 2). I never ever manage to get more then 33Kmh! And yes, I did test 4 Different Golden 2 wings. Further, my GPS as well as my speed probe, works just fine. On a Bolero Plus (my other wing) the trim speed is indicated as 35-36Kmh!

Not to worry!

We're flying the slowest airplanes in the universe. Were you clean-shaven? That, and one of those olympic swim-suits ought to put on a few more kph! :-)

Interesting..

Thanks Mario - the source for the figures I publish is the Para2000 database, maintained by Gerard Florit in France. However, I found a review which is very interesting, given your experiences near the top end of the speed range. Check out this review by Paul Hamilton.

Btw, don't mind the 3 stars - it just reflects the fact your submission is more of a comment than a review. It might still spark a bit of a reaction - let's see!
