These are Two of our clubs flying sites. Our flatland flying site is at Erie Com. College across the street from the Bill's stadium. This about 1.5 miles from my house, nice and convenient.

The other is our main slope site at Rainbow Lake near Ellicottville NY. The faces from North to west. It works best when the winds are from the west or north west. Excellent slope and thermal flying.

April 5/10


I flew my Speedo MK2 for the first time today, it was also my first time at the slope this year. The wind was blowing 20MPH + right up the hill. It was sunny and in the low 70's.
I flew my Mini Elipse first to get warmed up. You know when you read a review in a magazine when they build a plane and it flys perfectly with only some minor adjustments and then they do every trick in the book, well this actually happend to me with the Speedo. I tossed it out and away it went. It only needed a couple of clicks of down and some down elevator programed with the spoilerons.
This one sweet little airplane. I thought because of the size it was going to be real squirrely but tracked and penetrated well without ballast. It did the usual rolls and loops with no problem.
I built mine stock with no modifications. I think I'll get another one before the price goes up again.

These are my two Turbos by Charlie Richardson. The orange one is the original which I am still flying. The yellow one is scratch built from plans.
