Yes Merv, the max speed I could get out of the Radian was 72 MPH (no balast). Things were shaking pretty badly too! I don't think it would handle too much more. We have sloped with a Radian, and a Radian Pro in sustained winds of 35km/h. Sustained flight of 1 hr 6 minutes.
I mounted my video camera inside the fuse of the Radian, with a remote lens mounted on top of the canopy. It only required 1/4 oz of weight @ the HS. Flew like a brick, but took gtreat video. You sure wanted to be careful while decending! The extra balast made her sing in a dive. LOL I didn't mount the GPS on that flight! It weighted enough!!!!
