For the searchers out there I thought I'd repost this KMZ which is worth a look. Might at least give someone some ideas.

Have you looked out by the The Dalles by air? I've heard there are some potential sites just south of the The Dalles with good LZ's.

When I drove up to Kutch, it was very very foggy and I couldn't see a whole lot but it appears to be flyable from the old paraglider launch. Landings have to be into a grove of scotch broom (makes me want to devise a portable LZ net or something for some of the limited spaces slopes around).

The wind tomorrow actually might be perfect for me to give it a shot!!! Forecasted to be NNE 20-22!!

Looks like Peterson will be flyable today. NOAA forecast is for 9mph out of the South pretty much all day. Rain is likely, but should be pretty light (0.05" from 10a-4p is the forecast amount).

Tom, hope you had a good time at PB today. Did the Pica fly?
I got hoodwinked into helping my friends daughter and boyfriend move today so they have time to clean this weekend to get their deposit back. Darn kids these days can't seem to plan ahead!
My Speedo still not ready. I need servo extensions, will get some this weekend from Coyote hobby.
Thanks for the pics they helped. I think you should post them on the "Speedo instructional manual" thread!

Sorry you missed it Tony, yeah, the Pica flew (and flew well). I swapped out the battery pack since I didn't know how old it was with a 700mAh Eneloop one that I built last night and got three good flights on it (dodged a couple of showers) before I had to head back to work.
First flight was just a check flight to make sure everything was the proper throws. Second flight I added aileron differential and increased both the low and high rates, and the third flight was just for fun
Glad the Speedo pix helped, I'll look up the build thread and post them over there this weekend.
