We just finished doing some preliminary testing, I'm not exactly impressed to say the least. Videos are being processed as I type this and should be posted shortly.
Basic non-scientific test results - These were done on a "around the curve" type test course. As you will see from the video, the course involved a left hand curve followed by a ~1500 ft strait. This test was done to simulate a real world situation and was by no means a science experiment. This was the best we could do at 2AM on a Monday night/Tuesday morning.
Kustom Talon 35.5 Ka:
V1 > Redline > STI
I'd say the V1 had about a 40-50 ft edge on the Redline and about a 100-120 ft edge on the STI. One thing I noticed is that the Redline actually lost the signal when about 1000 feet from the gun and picked it back up shortly after.
Stalker ATR 34.7 Ka:
Redline > V1 > STI
The redline had approximately 100 ft edge over the V1 and a 200 ft lead over the STI.
Kustom Roadrunner K band:
Redline > V1 = STI
In this case, the Redline had the edge by about 200 ft over the V1 and STI which were tied.
As far as QT goes, it seems escort has not done anything to improve performance. It performs on par with the STI for QT. What a big disappointment. Elvato was operating the radar, so he will have to post up his results. One thing I did notice from the QT testing, the Redline takes forever to ramp down. There was approximatly a 5-7 second delay before the unit went quiet after the radar was turned off.
Take the results as you will, the videos will be posted as soon as we can get them processed and uploaded. I'll probably run the redline for a couple days but at this point, with the spray paint finish and not exactly steller performance that escort claimed (barely beating out the V1 on 34.7), I'll probably end up sending it back. Let me know if you guys want to see any other specific tests.
