Ait Test

I just received a used (3 weeks old) Racer 2 and I want to make sure that there are no issues. I quickly did a couple air test and the max in DEEP mode was 10" or just a little more. None of my test made it passed 10" (quarter, dime, penny, nickel) and but I may have EMI in my yard since the detector got a little chatty. I have been reading thru the manual to learn the settings but I did not spend enough time to look for the optimal settings.

So here are my questions:
1) Is an air test a valid test for this machine?
2) What were your results and what were your basic settings (mode, gain, etc)?

In my test garden in mineralize soil, it struggled to hit 8 inch coins (the nickel and quarter sounded, the penny and dime I didn't).

Any comments will be appreciated.
