Any progress on the slope stuff yet guys? I'm really wanting to finish this up.
No problem with the logo itself, it is great. The problem is the large writing which detracts from the logo.
We have given you our suggestions for silver some time back. Please elaborate on what you are waiting for?

Ian really likes to do aerobatics while DS'ing and it looks really cool. Check out the video.

I'm not sure if I should be diappointed that there's no slopes around here or thankful. That looks like way too much fun! I don't think my wallet can take much more in this hobby.

And for those of you not familiar with the Crossfire he is flying, it is a 3 meter F3B style plane. Big plane maneuvering like a little one.

I can't afford it either.

Ok so I've watched it several time's now,and am I missing somthing or is there very little wind?? You can hear the camera man's breathing more than the wind. Or is that normal for a DS site? Being on the backside and all.

Do you launch on the front side first or just chuck it as hard as posible?

Normally launch on the front side, gain some altitude and speed and diver to the dark side. Reason it is so quiet is that some sites have such a sharp shear layer that you can actually get out of the wind on the back side of the hill. Kind of a nice break from having to freeze out on the front side.

Here's what I have so far. Look about right? I 'll draw up the A4 aerobatics and R2 routine this week. The R1 will be a tough one as it's the final level for the main program. Let me know what you guys come up with for DS laps. I will also get the requirements pages finished to include these new tasks as well. I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Honestly, it will be nice to see this finished. Then we can start spending time recruiting new people instead of trying to build the program.

On the slope side, the F3F task must be on a 100 meter course for those times to be acheiveable. That is also consistent with the F3F rules.

For the DS task, I have pretty much confirmed that 10 laps in a minute is doable, 12 would be pushing some people pretty well. Based on that I suggest 2 tries with 8 laps, 2 tries with 10 laps, and 1 with 12.
