Just set up an AP 130 in my lab and I'm testing 11ac since this is the first ac device I've gotten my hands on.  Unfortunately, the only ac devices I have are iPhone 6/6s.  I am running an iPerf against the AP using the hurricane electric iperf2 app and I'm averaging around ~125Mbps.   What am I doing wrong that I am not seeing higher numbers.  Seems like the devices are only associating on 11n in 5ghz.

Maybe the crappy WIFI card is giving you the problems, I also experience low performance with iPhone 6/6s and the new iPad Air.
Normal Internet is fine on the iPhone, I myself are a persistent Apple user, but a real network speedtest isn't.

Do you get higher numbers with a normal laptop?
Keep in mind that Apple devices are strongly persistent on 5GHz so try not to use any band steering or other things in your network policy.
Are you using the MAC aggregation function? I would recommend that.
