Nice DS session - interesting to see all the laps on the left side. Does the hill just work better that way or is it Spencer's preferred side?

A change in wind direction of just a couple degrees one way or the other really determines which side to fly on. Sometimes have to try both sides to figure out which one.

clockwise turns are usually the fastest at the point.
(i haven't mastered the right turn very well myself!)

Went out to Dinner last night with my Mate Dave and his wife before they flew back to New Zealand this morning after our Manilla Slope fest, both our wives started talking travel.
Sooooooo with out blinking both Dave and I said how bout a trip to the States. there was a bit a stunned silence from Dave and myself when they said yes .Of course it wont be until 2014 and that will be a Soar Utah event if my maths is correct ,anyway I look forward as I'm sure Dave does as well meeting up and flying with you guys. Besides I owe a return visit to Dan ,Jim and Matin for the trips down under.
SteveW planning what plane to bring already

Steve,

That would be great to have you and Dave (and wives) out. I've been wanting to go to Soar Utah and this would be just the thing. Only thing is - isn't this pretty close to Manilla Fest? I know this year Matin was coming right off Soar Utah and then MF the following week. No matter, it'll be nice to have you all in the states for some return hospitality.

Jim

Steve, I'm still trying to figure out how you are going to get those big PSSer to the states. Can't wait to see them and you in person.
See you in O12.

Good thinking Steve. Ya know we all wanna see your big stuff fly at POTM. Maybe we need to start a "Help get Aussie Steve's big stuff to Utah" support fund going. I'd pay twenty bucks to see those planes in person!

Brian I'm just amazed that you guys would want to see my meger models when the talented builders including yourself Brian, that are local there just puts my stuff in the shadows honestly. Just to get over there and sit, talk, drink and fly with you guys would be an eye opener , I can only speak for myself but I know my Mate Dave the Ex Aussie now Kiwi (qawzi) would think pretty much the same .Plenty of time to go yet I'll build something really special for the trip

P.S and I'll put the Neck strap on the Tx before I hand it to Jim
