The Fastest Dump in the World!

For a several years I have been wanting to fly the Lost Hills dump on a Santa Ana wind. A few years ago, Spencer moved to the area and quickly started exploring many of the wish-list sites. He started flying the local dump in the last year and so today we did a joint trip up there.

The wind was 25-40 and sort of off-angle. Despite this, we flew everything we had: 2 Sonics, light K2M and light JW. The K2M was clocked on radar at 221 mph which may be the all time dump record?! The site has huge potential for 300+ but only time will tell.

Aaron hate to say it but after you left it got good! Im certain the k2mUL hit 250 with big smooth laps. Have to hit it again with the heavier k2m. Pretty sure we can beat 300 there if we get another day like today.

The landing area is perfect. Laminar wind and all grass. Should be easy to fly a heavy. Interesting is how the measured wind at the dump exactly matched the readings on the Cheeseborough sensor nearby.

Wow, cool landing zone. Good poster for the drought though. In a wet spring that's probably all green?

It doesn't sound too good in American slang either.

The dump got (2) new hill records today. Brandon pushed it up to 251mph with his K2mL and then I got 259 with mine... (I had 10oz more) Fun flying! Nice landings... Hasn't greened up yet but still nice.
