Another nice day in Southern California flying with friends...

Date: 1.17.13
Location: Norco
Pilot: Spencer Lisenby
Plane: Kinetic 2 meter, (k2m)
Speed: 379 mph, (airframe record)
Witness: Chris Bosley
Radar: Stalker
Gyro: Spencers thumbs

Date: 1.17.13
Location: Norco
Pilot: Chris Bosley
Plane: Opus MCT
Speed: 27? mph (it was the high 270's but I sorta forgot. Sorry Chris.
Witness: Chris Brooksby

Date: 1.17.13
Location: Norco
Pilot: Chris Brooksby
Plane: Sonic
Speed: 125 mph, (airframe record)
Witness: Spencer Lisenby
Radar: Stalker
Gyro: Nope.

The wind was sorta all over the place, we had gusts into the 50's at one point but for the most part it seemed to be in the 30-40 mph range.

Good fun though with a couple of close calls but no carnage.

Chris

p.s. George if you read this thanks again for the ride up the hill.

Its nice to see the Big Dogs are back and still breaking records. I was starting to think the wind in California was a myth.

And a big hello to Chris "Daboz" - I hope the fact you're flying doesn't mean the surf is out. You'll be happy to know my shredded Windburner is back up and flying again (Lazarus with a triple bypass ).

Also a comment re RCSpeeds: I noticed the K2M isn't listed in the 80inch category, presumably an oversight.

Random correction from last fall.
My top Wizard Compact DSX speed is mistakenly listed on the Wizard Compact DS list.

Peter France did 140mph with his burner, Rob got 106 with his JW60 and I was in the 130s with my Reaper. Wind picked up while we were there, but sun was in the way so didn't fly the Kinetic again. The yellow was SOOOO Hard to see!!!!

Great video you guys! I had a good laugh and it was great to hear Dave's voice doing the commentary and see you getting some action. Shame about the Mauler! But it's all worth it for an airframe and hill record. I loved the "Senior moment" comment ... know how that feels ...
