Thats plane programming!

Thats plane programming!

I was helping to test a GPS telemetry device today in my Yak 54. It works, and the data is pretty interesting. Takeoff speed is 100Km/h, and the plane goes from 0-80Km/h in 3 seconds. Top speed was 206Km/h, highest altitude was 460m above takeoff level.

And that was with me flying fairly gently because of all the delicate electronic test/development boards on board the airplane.
