Today at Mars Gregg Bolton once again gave his Gulp DS 48 a solid once over twice, digging deep and coming up with a speed of 223 mph.

I witnessed the event and captured the speeds using a falcon hand held radar.

Gregg controlled the Gulp DS 48 using his thumbs and his Hitec Aurora 9 transmitter while wearing a new Hitec shirt and hat.

As Gregg said after the flight "that was awesome!!!!"

Cheers,
Chris

New sounds of ds

Ive lost a few foamies at high speeds that ended with a quick thud, but this one was WAY BETTER! When that rock sheared off the wing and opened the ballast tube up it shot a dozen or so lead slugs over us with a sound I will never forget! It was like the richochet sound in an old western movie times 12!
Luckily we had the wall to hide behind as they went overhead. Pretty sure I felt Chris grab my shoulder pulling me behind the wall and saying "you should PROBABLY get down". That was a good call. We heard them coming at us and going overhead for what seemed like 5 seconds. It was the best surround sound ever!
After the all clear sounded we laughed for some time before throwing out the opus for a little punishment. With the same type of cyling air, smooth was slow and rough ratty air was faster. A few near misses with the opus and a top speed of 269 it was time to land and take a break.
Super fun day. My only regret is not having any video to share with you guys.
Gopro helmet is on the list!

Just got off a long phone call with Bruce Tebo talking about the last two days...

He dosnt have a RCG account and would like me to post this speed for his brand new D80 400 miles per hour on the nose, witness Alan Coconi on radar with a Stocker Two, No Gyros.

Weigbt about 210oz w 24oz's in the wing tips. (In front of the spar)

Nice Job Tebo. SMOKING FAST !!!

HE also said it was the best air he's had at Weldon EVER!!! And he put his K130 together for a 500mph run but the air backed off. He got there late after work and an issue with D130.

Almost...

. Go DS-junkie

Bruce has a freakin' gyro in his brain
A big congrats to all!
What wind speeds were you getting and was it slightly SW? There seems to be a real sweet spot between straight in and too far SW. Last week we were there and the conditions went from bad to super smooth with no real noticeable change in direction.

II will make a special page for Gyro speeds so please keep posting them. If I post them now they'll show up on the hill, big-dog, wing span, ect. record lists and I think most of us agree that computer controlled steering isn't really a place for record lists but these speeds are important all the same.

Hey Chris. Someone may have already mentioned this, but on RCSpeeds, the Location for the WR speed is listed as Weldon.

Thanks David

yeah I haven't added bird springs yet.

I'll probably do it tonight and I will change the WR location to Bird Springs. Also Spencer texedt me and told me he posted the wrong day so I will fix that too.

thanks.
