Default Best GPS for speed logging

Hello all

What GPS would you recommend to easily log speed values? I would like to hear from your experience considering weight and other factors. I have seen one at the field that is a simple USB GPS that logs the info and then links to Google Earth, but I haven't seen this person recently.

I have the Eagle Tree and have seen the HK and Voltron units, but they only display top speed and altitude. I'd rather have the speed all throughout the flight.

Thanks!!

Ed

The google earth version didn't work out too well. It is basically a datalogger that takes a point every few seconds. The time between logging was too long and gave poor readings.
How new is your Eagle Tree? I have seen a Q40 with one that records a good bit of info including G force load in turns.

I have used the Eagle Tree for FPV flying. I will test it for speed and let you know.
