Pilot : Travis Woolmer

This was not only Travis's first DS speed, but also his first ever visit to a slope other than Shorncliffe.

Lovely arvo. Very light wind and slermals. The Stratos DS seems to get the 10x windspeed nicely - it whipped up to 98.9mph and I doubt that the wind got to 10 knots. But at one point the lift died and I ended up doing a rather risky outlanding way down below near the cars ...avoiding road, rocks, powerlines, dams, etc. But don't worry Chris, it's fine and was back flying as soon as I'd retrieved it!
That Stratos is a lot of fun glad you’re having fun on the light days.

I landed my NYX down at the car a few weeks back at Norco. It's so rocky near the top below eye level and I was flying in about 8-12mph winds, using huge thermals and light DS to fly until the slope lift stopped I hit a huge down draft, ( I think on the back side of a thermal) and before I knew it the NYX was well below me. As I circled the plane I ran down the steep hill but couldn't get there in time to be close but I had the same result deep grass and a happy landing. I had to hike all the way back up that steep trail to get my back pack.

Wow! That's a bit scary! Norco is such a huge steep walk! I remember stopping quite a few times out of breath on the way up! If anyone wants to see some video of the steep walk up Norco ...

Cool video Andrew. When I've hiked up Norco, I always wished I had a good 4WD instead...maybe not anymore!

I noticed 80 knot winds at a sensor "down the street" from my house this morning. Did anyone get some of this epic wind today? The high average wind and massive gusts had to have been going off somewhere! Alas, weekday wind blows.

Congratulation.

Ray told me he had achieved his PB with your borrowed D80.

Good pilot + D80 = PB
