That was great, thanks Alex. Don't think that I will go ever that fast anymore, if I get to 200 I am happy.
Cheers
Knut

Awesome speeds. Awesome site. Where's Wurts in all of this? Isn't he still in NZ?

Nice going Alex! Glad the D60 is working out for you. Wish Joe could have got his D80 up there. Maybe next time.

Wow Alex well done dude. Great flying. I'm really interested in your comment on the video around 7:10 - sure is making me look forward to my D130 arriving!!!

Hopefully I'll catch you up with it!

+1.

Hey, Alex, great stuff!
Casually driving both planes with consistent 3s laps, woo-hoo!.


Site looks great: massive drops each side & (just?) enough width.
Is it OK the other way round, too?

Look forward to your D130.
Back-to-back with the K100, if you please.

Oh, & no Joe Public to worry about.

I've been trying to locate Nirvana on the map - is it near Christchurch?

Cheers guys. Wind was 40kts average, and Joe W lives up North in a place that doesn't get much wind. He was here last weekend but missed this wind we had yesterday.

There should be a Google earth link to Wainui ridge on RC Speeds, check it out there.

Man the landings look like the most dangerous parts there. Don't hit those rocks with your expensive crunchies. Nice flying.

Great speeds Alex! Only 8 people over 300 with a 60" plane, congrats!

I'm betting next time you post about new NZ records, the number might start with a 4...

Keep us posted!

Spencer

Sounds like some loose tape on the Kinetic...?

Yes probably some loose tape on th K. Found the LE on the fin is split. Ideas about fixing? Fixed the split on the bottom of the fuse up the hill with some CA and cloth inside. That was an easy fix, but the tail looks a bit trickier....

Yes will try get some shots of the ridge next time we are up. There is a better site for that wind, at 100ft higher altitude, but you have to walk a ways. Havent tried it in a SW yet, will give it a go sometime.
