What is the speed for the Diamond and Delta

Hey Virtual Thunderbirds I have one question at what speed does the Diamond and the Delta hold at for every maneuver.

One question? That's at least 20 questions for the high show alone.

Come on, Tyler, I hope your team plans on being a little more original than that...!

That's perhaps a wee bit presumptuous.

The bit about originality? Or about team...? :mrgreen:

While there's no way to provide a single answer since each maneuver is a little different, the average speed used by us as well as the real Thunderbirds is approximately 350-450 knots. Loops near the high-end, rolls somewhere in middle, and BUPs/TUPs (turns) near the low-end of that range.
