Me n Jono headed up Ngaio today. Wind was about 70-80kph and roughly WNW. Wind was perhaps too West, as it produced pretty rough turbulent conditions on the back.
After both failing miserably to get our 60" foamies to any sort of speed without crashing, Jono decided to fly the PMS. And what a good choice that was! Almost immediately the size and weight of it took control of the backside and it was cutting good fast laps. With a lot over 200, and peaking at 220. No real hairy moments, except and bit of a flip-over on landing busting a servo and creasing the tail.
I had damaged my carbon destiny on the trip up the hill, so the only thing left was the Windburner. I set the Gyro (aileron only) to about 30% and it was quickly carving rock-solid laps once i got it under the shear. Several 190 ish laps, and then the tantalising 199, but nothing over 200
I decided to try without the Gyro, so i turned it off, and then dove in, but BOY what a difference. I struggled to keep it under control in the rough conditions. So i quickly put it back on. It was good to do a back-to-back comparison to get an idea of the gyro effect. Landing was a bit hard and it creased the tail in front of the fin - easy fix tho.
Jono has a pic. I will upload video later.
