Thanks for the motivation #1. Getting a fair amount of slopeing in,as it dosn't need the Hi-start or winch. The snow does have one benifit to it. It make's it a lot easy'r to run my 12 snowmobile's .
On my 2002 Summit at the Notch. About 8 feet behind me it drops near 90 degrees for 3000ft,a wonderfull slope site .

Ken, what a great looking place to fly im jealous, wish our slopes here in Missouri looked like that. We do have a few small slopes and they are great to toss the DLG'S off of and the wind has to be in the right direction for the one we fly off of. I don't know if it's possible to fly from but we have some very large lakes here with some big damns. I thought at one time someone said since the 911 ordeal that flying from the damns or dykes wasn't permitted anymore but if i'm wrong someone tell me and i'm going to hit those sites.

That sounds like fun,as long as you don't land short( have boat handy !). I would give it a try anyway, all they can do is ask you to leave. That 911isim, is amazing. The commy's are gone so now we have the Talaban, LONG LIVE MACARTHYisim.

Sorry, it's been a busy week. Here's A4. Remember, if you're not sure what a maneuver looks like, it would be a good idea to follow the link on our site to the aresti page. It will make things easier to understand. Yes, this is going to take some effort. It should. It's the final level of the main program. Let the flogging of the president begin.

FLOGGING?? Hell I like it a lot. I take it that the > simble means "into"? Ie half roll >(into) inverted flight.

I'm going to need to dust off the old Cris Foss Phase 4 .

Works for me. Just having a problem figuring out what a "figure 9" is. Do you mean a spin that is mentioned in the linked pdf figure 9? Never heard of a goldfish before but that is explained well in the pdf.

A figure "9" is an inside loop,where on the vertical point, you let off of the backstick for a second or so,for a vertical climb. Then pull the remainder of the loop, crossing your vertical line about half way between the start and finish of your straight vertical line.

Tho most of mine look more like a backwards "e" .

This work for you?

Figure 9: If you look at the aresti made simple PDF the explanation comes right after tailslides. It's a hard pull to an upline with a loop that ends up coming back through the upline about half way down. (I think I explained that right) Ends up looking like a "9" .
Yup, ">" means "into". I'm glad you guys like it. I really didn't want to start over again.

Ok, I finally had a chance to sit down and get (R1) routine 1 done. I hope you all like it. I kept it a bit easy as it's the first time you will be required to do a whole sequence. Let me know what you all think.
I've also been finishing up the TD advanced program. I have sent it to Joe to get his input and then I will do the final revisions and have it done as well.
In the mean time I have been finishing up the requirements pages and making any changes that are needed. This includes any changes to the website as well to get it all updated. I'm hoping to be done very shortly.
If anyone knows someone who has the program for printing aresti charts, let me know. I would love to have someone make these a bit nicer and have them as a PDF to send out as well. Thanks.

That looks pretty doable for the first routine. Will fly it on the sim sometime to see how hard it really is.
