Hi Flyers: Another great HL contest. It was me, Fr. Wayne and Dancing Bill. The weather was beautiful. Warm but enough wind to make it comfortable.
The sod farm is in primo condition. All grass and lots of lift. We did ALL UPs for 12 rounds. Yes … 12 rounds.
Dancing Bill is becoming a respectable competitor. Fr. Wayne maidened his new ship … a Stream NXT. I had to work hard to stay up with him.
I flew my Twinkle for most of the morning and it performed much better than I deserved. When the wind increased I switched to my XXLite. I’m amazed how well that little skinny winged plane works. It’s much faster than any other ship but still goes up when you hit lift. The advantage is that it squirts around the sky so fast that the odds of finding lift is increased.
After 12 rounds we were all “wore out”.
Another great day at the field. You should have been there.
