Default 200 kt Club / 300 kt Club

I hate to post this because I was flying on 48% power with the following setting: 2220rpm, 1/2 throttle, climbing at 250fpm, 15,480'. IAS = 153mph, TAS = 197mph, Ground Speed (GPS) = 265kts, or 305mph, wind speed = 110mph.

I missed the photo op. Had smooth cookin' uppers and hit 200 kts. By the time I got my camera and snapped I was at 194kts GS level at 12.5k elev.

If I had oxygen I could of hit 220kts that day as the uppers were fast and smooth.
