The direction this year has almost always been "on" for mars. dont ask me why, I cant figure the place out. Straight in more often than not this year. The weather was a little brisk. We had hoodies on that day. Even after the hike up I never felt overheated. The weatherstation said it was gusting to 39WNW. We were measuring steady 45 gusting to 52 at the bottom. Hiked up and I checked the wind again. Only for about 30 seconds. Straight in, steady 45 with a gust to 58. Dropped everything and got the plane in the air. It was not the best conditions I have had at Mars. I had to really work for the speed and the energy was kind of hit and miss. 400 will come with a D80 there soon. I wish I had a D130 that day. Maybe a new record. Im looking forward to getting the new model going. Come out and fly sometime dude.

Here's the speeds I recorded from Saturday 10/23 at Weldon
Winds 20-30mph
Nick was on radar pretty much all day and caught the vast majority of the highest speeds from the low radar rock.
Seth D40 155
Bruce Tebo D80 203
Ian Compact DSX 259
Joe Manor D60 212
Jason D60 200
James Compact V 173
Paul Anderson D100 184 D40 187
Tim Williamson Mako48 115
Jason TT 179
Jason D60 200
I missed D80 speeds for Paul and Tim.

On Monday, Nick did 356 on the TT and if I recall every gun showed that but mine, so pick your radar operator.

thanks Ian, sure was a cool day.

Only reason I didn't Post Nicks 356/TT and my 341/D80 was because they weren't PB's but I'll go ahead and put them on RCSpeeds. I'll look through the posts and post the highest speeds posted for each day if there's two speeds posted.

If anyone finds errors or missing speeds please let me know

thanks again
