I think that takes the record as the smallest DS site! Good job!

We found this site near Wenatchee WA. We have seen over 100 mph with combat wings so far. Most of the wings start to flutter badly near 75 mph but one has 10mil new stuff and really moved well.

That seems impressive for a small hill.

Dune DS

Same dune,and same day as the Alula klon video, but with my X model Blade 1,5.
Even with a small ridge you can get some speed, if you have the right equipment.
Wind 14-16 knots.

Bump. I was looking for information on small site DS and this looks like the most comprehensive thread on the subject.

This could be helpful for people who don't expect to break any records but are looking for ways to ... FLY without an engine or motor. Recently, I've been eyeing some treelines (with or without small hills) and noise barriers...

Its 4 km north of small town Hulsig at the East coast (30 km north of Frederikshavn) You have to walk for 15 min from the car parking.

This one is just 50 meter from the parking.
And you can see it from the road, where the road go to Skiveren.

4 km north of Aalbæk, (20 km north of Frederikshavn)

Wind from 130 degree
Send a mail when you come, then maybe we can meet.
