Bushnell Velocity Gun

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
The Princess Auto flyer (sale starts Tuesday Oct 2) offers a Bushnell Velocity Gun for $109.99. According to the ad, this unit can clock a baseball from 90 ft or a car from 1300 ft away. Seems like a good price but I was wondering if anyone out in RC Canada land had tried one of these units to clock the speed of RC aircraft. Are there other similar units in this price range that might be better? Thanks.

Re: Bushnell Velocity Gun

I wonder if anyone would use it at a fun fly.......pay a small fee to get the speeeeed of your plane?! Or have a contest, whoever guesses closest to the speed wins the kitty!

Re: Bushnell Velocity Gun

I used to use the same Bushnell unit during my car racing days (CASC-OR SOLO1) to clock the top speed of competitors on the main straight. It worked well, but the unit did see a lot of use and the trigger switch frequently broke.
