Default Speaking of airspeed measurement......

Eagletree Systems is releasing a new micro airspeed sensor, stand alone. It measures to 350 MPH, which won't work for gliders but for us prop dudes should be plenty enough!

Kmot, nice find. Whatever the unit of measurement, or method.....as long as it is consistant, bragging rights are bragging rights.
I think we should start our own Speed Cup with a 600 foot speed trap that is straight down.

I think the only way to go past that would be in a turbine powered plane.
