Default Sure, but...

You should not have a -150fpm vert speed at the time. +50, on the other hand...

Well, yes, at 3,500'. Ground winds were appreciably lower.

I saw 142 knots GS today, but didn't think to get a screen shot.

While it wasn't me flying, I do have a screen shot the a friend took, while flying my RV-12, with a GS of 201 MPH.
