Looked like a lead sled Sunday!

Sorry I was not able to attend.

Maybe next weekend.

Good luck on the DS scouting!

Just heard from Derrick.
DSing in 70mph winds today above Kiona proved successful but challenging.
Opus did some nice laps. No radar gun!
Tomorrow is suppose to be a little lighter.
Stay tuned for the DS report.

Next weekend??? Wait and see!

"Uh oh. Somebody's got the bug ... " You have that right Frank.

Cheers, Sam

Too late Joel...remaining carbon splinters were used for repairs on Derrick's JW elevon in the name of further DS experimentation.

No gun and no anemometer, but it was really about making it work at this point. I think we all learned quite a bit about DS up there yesterday...was a bit different than having a DS tour guide showing the locations and the lines to fly as in previous sessions.

The moral of this trip is to always carry something heavier than you think you could every fly.

guess it's a red /white one, sell it for cheap you got a good deal and Joel still has some credit from our last midair.
Interesting how it goes in circles.

good that the OPI supply isn't an issue nowadays and Building season is near.

This was the red Brio, just shy of a full load. I think Sam said it was 230 oz's ? Unreal
