Parker Report 2013

Here is the 2013 Parker Report..
Met Bruce and Tim at around 4:00 the conditions were great and we got some really good flying. I flew my JW, Bruce was tearing it up with his carbon Sunbird and Tim was getting some great laps with his NYX..
Today looks like it will be good as well, see you up there..

Video from Parker on Feb 14

Got in a quick session at Parker with Tim, Alan, and Bruce on Feb 14. Good smooth air! You can tell Alan has been flying with Bruce alot! He's got a nice arsenal of DS Acro moves now ;o). Got to try out my Contour HD camera (same as Alex Hewson's). Still need to work on aiming the thing. It has (2) lasers for that but you really can't see them unless its dark...

Nice Video, the wind looks awesome that day.
At my mortal eyes I would say you're doing fine with this angle cam (contour),
I understand you don't need to follow exactly where the plane is since this cams carry angle lens... jus tmy opinion.

Cheers,
André

Cool Spencer! I will watch video when I get home from work.

I get someone to help with getting the camera pointed about right at the start of the flying session and don't usually take the camera off my head to ensure I can always turn on and film the action.

I got some super cheap Ski Goggles and stole the strap from them and use that for my head mount.

I want to try putting a sock over the whole camera next time to filter out wind noise, or do the external mic mod..

Big NE Winds 5-1-13

Dom, Chung, Richard, Bruce and myself met at Parker today. It was amazing to see the dramatic switch from west to east in just 24 hrs. Winds were 34 gusting to 46 from the NE. the shear was high and deep but fairly ratty throughout the day. We had a few JW's go in on the backsideand a few people got a bit of exercise. It was still fun. Dom, Chung, Rich flew JWs, I flew mh Vector DS, Bruce flew his Sun Bird.

Glider Found At Parker!

I was visiting my parents by Parker Mtn and read in the local paper that someone found a "rc glider" Only in Acton Was lost around the August 1st or end of july according to hiker on one his trails.

Who's is it? I've talked with the guy and told I will help him. He probably thought I was trying to take it for myself, had to tell that we use more expensive types of planes that cost 1000's and they go 300+mph, not this plane

Joe,

Send a PM to dlgdude... I think he may be curious as to what happened to his plane.
