Now, you've gone and done it! There are many here that don't share your opinion...I, for one, agree with you. I agree that topography and the consistency of the winds (lift) is critical for VTPR. I wish I could perform as well as those in the video, but alas, my slope does not lend itself to "pure" VTPR. Now, others (as I have stated before) may have the skills to fly Crestline and duplicate what we see above...but it ain't me.
