It's hard to believe but it was SSW today 2-3:00 PM at 16-20 mph at times, been awhile since we have had any wind to speak of at all. Maiden flight on Shrike with new Oran fuse and Harris polyhedral wings. The wings were originally designed to make the Shrike into a beginner floater I understood, but today it was very fast for 24 oz, had to land on the sand until I get the throws set. Now I have two more nostalgia Shrikes with 60" straight wings to get maidens in, let it blow some more! Great Day......

Is this the Hobby People electric Mustang ?. I too converted mine to a sloper - not a good flyer; need a lots of wind.

I flew for about an hour on Saturday. The sea breeze kicked in about 1PM. Ligh lift until about 2:30 than the winds shifted back to off shore-ish.

Today's forecast looks much the same. I'm hoping the sea breeze shows up again today.
