Looks like a "reverse Santa Ana". On second look the winds don't become strong until 2:00pm. Bring lunch with your ballast.

I'll be there Monday morning early, but flying 3 meter. Don't have a flyable DLG currently - pretty sad

Hopefully less wind than today.

I have one of them built (the heavier one). I've only had a couple flying sessions with it, and the conditions weren't ideal, so I can't say at this point that I've got it trimmed properly. It flies differently from my Mongrel, and it will definitely take some time to get to know it. Even in wind/turbulence last weekend, it seemed like I was doing pretty well with it. I'll get some more stick time tomorrow.

I wanted to live with the one for a few weeks before building the second - just in case there was anything I wanted to do differently. I started in on #2 (the lighter one) this week, so it should be done by next weekend.

I'm sure I'll grow to love them as everybody else has. One thing is dang sure - it is an AMAZING kit. Fit&finish is just about flawless, and every conceivable little thing is done perfectly. Put it together per instructions and both the CG and trim are just about perfect w/out any adjusting. Beautiful.

That's the whole point, George! After the WC, I'd like to see all of us get together for another fun-fly - I really enjoyed that day when JW was in town...
