Mike it was nice meeting you and fun getting that plane dialed in. Thanks for letting me fly it a bit. Call me again when you’re coming out and we'll try and drag Jimmy up next time too.

Chris,
I will have to try and make it down to Parker or some of the other sites closer to L.A. when the winds are right. Clicking on the wind.

I will be flying vicariously through all you guys so go get some big air!

The kevlar is a must for Vegas LZ's; the D60 & Sloper will only be flown in Cali. much kinder LZ's. Nice to see the Daisy cutter fly after waiting all day for the wind. Hope everthing goes well for you and see you on the slope soon.
I search for your iphone headset on Monday with no success.
Take care, Mike
