It is too bad most of you could not fly today.

We had huge thermals early (9:30 am) and continuing the rest of the day, wind was very light.

The lift was so good we almost stayed up to long on first and second flight.

Next time make it a priority to go thermal hunting.............

Scott you have a Big Bird? That thing is one fast slope machine.

Dax has one and it is one of my favorite planes. Bring that thing out to the next f3f race and you will have a blast with it.

I am pretty sure we are talking about different airplanes!

My Big Bird is a balsa thermal kit from Skybench models, 100", 40 ounces dry. I would probably have it instantly back in my face if I tried launching in 30+ mph winds

Now, if there was little to no wind at the slope, with thermal conditions--no problem
