Went to Tekapo again and did 407 with the K130, 239 with JW, before a servo died and it went in. Need to stop using those servos on 6.6v

Waxa did 258, and that was all we flew. Wind wasn't quite right, conditions weren't as good as the 17th jan during the Fest.


Good landing with k130 and no damage

HUGE thanks to Jono for sending his gun down to help with a possible 500 day. Interesting, the Falcon was the better gun on the day, picking up readings better on the K130. The falcon got the 407, and the Stalker got 389...

Guns are so fickle. Sometimes the Falcon gets all the reads and sometimes the Stalker does. Best practice is to have both guns running on any given record attempt.

I know how you feel Alex. Going to or in your case running the DS fest is such a huge undertaking and came with such highs it kind of leaves you a bit deflated returning home. Im only just starting to get the building/ slash flying bug again, hoping for our DS season to kick off soon.

Yup, plenty of wind but let's not forget the associated rain, cloud, and t-t-t-temperature...

Yes you guys are going to get some weather. It a very big low that just missed southern Australia. It's big enough to make the news I'm sure. Plenty of snow and rain and wind. NZ will be very white the next few days
