lol I know, I'm terrible. Get bored of things too fast. Main reason I think is because I'm always doing it by myself and have no-one to push/challenge me or to fly against up the hills here. More of a case of boredom through lack of entertainment up there.

I am using the Contour HD mounted to my ski goggles

Wow , that's great wind mate....we all wish you where up there..
45 knot average would have yielded some good numbers....

Would have gone 400 in that I think. Main reason I wasn't up there was it was only forecast for half that wind!!!!

Better start planning to come here early-mid Jan. Have a guy from Singapore coming over, and an Aussie or two. Around the 6th onwards

Just build and bring whatever, lets not put restrictions on. Lets just go all out for the fun factor! Bring what you fly, fly what you bring.

I can sort a rental car from this end if you like. May be able to get a good discount, just let me know dates when you know them
