32-60mph on the flat! That has to at least be 70-80 up the hill!

I am sure I will. NZ Nationals are on next week, no one will be flying in the 45kt winds forecast on the flat, so should get a few keen to come up

Didn't go =(

Fell into the too hard basket. Too much going on with the Nationals and was forecast to be very north. Well coming home to look at Mt John proves it was. Only about 30min or so of the right direction today. But when it was the right direction it was blowing 70mph at Mt John! Oh well, next time

Keep trying Alex, it'll be worth the weight for that perfect day! Next time you will have some kinetics to throw off too hopefully!

Thanks Jono for posting. Not sure where that Paikak DS spot is. I used to fly from the hill road, close to where there is a lookout spot. From memory the hill went further up behind the road.
But thats over 30 years ago.
Hope I get another chance to come to NZ and DS.
Happy New Year to you guys.

That's some great hills there Johnno. How long does it take to get up there and how are the landings.
