If you have an account as you do and you're associated with a pilot as you are you can log in go to your page click on the handle area, (or just to the right of your name if you don't have one yet) and just type it in... After you click out of the text box it will change or create your handle.

thanks Bobby

Sorry Chris, the scank (scorcher plank), is a scorcher wing and fuse with the tail chopped off and a bagged tail to make it a plank. Span is 2m/ 80". I just run a bit of reflex and it seems to be a hoot to fly! This one is only light, but it needs to be to land in one piece!

Simple looks really nice! Ive always wondered if they are the same as a terminator on soaring USA? Looks like it should be a really fast plane, wondered why no one seems to have them.

Josh the first simple wing was mounted to the terminator fuse. And for the second wing spencer Deputy bagged a fuse similar to the terminator. On the next wing Dax Self mounted it to a mc3 opus fuse which is the Simplus.. The terminator is a fun plane but has a fairly low speed potential I think that is why you do not see many on the hill (any longer)

Hi Josh, thats Spencer Deputy that Bobby is referring to, not myself. No association b/t Terminator and Kinetic...

No report from NZ yet? I figured we'd hear that the Alex got the Scorcher over 300 today...???

I wish I was still there! I keep going to check the text to make sure they didnt say it was the wizard, d60 or wind burner! No idea about the conditions, but they must be getting some awesome speeds today- Asto has a heavy windburner and d60, alex has the scorcher and d60 and Avb has the wizard dsx. I hope they post something soon as I just cant wait to see it!
Congratulations and thanks Alex!
