The outer circles meet LSF requirements, 3M and 1.5M. The enter circle is about 18".

I'll be lucky to hit any circle.

I'll be out tomorrow working on that.

Time starts when ALES plane leaves your hand.

Motor run time starts when motor starts (which may be when it leaves your hand or not).

Motor run time stops when the motor stops.

Well, as expected, the great weather forecast is falling apart. Temps OK, 84/82, but the winds are really kicking up. Original forecast was for only 4MPH winds, but now they are saying it could get up to 6MPH!! WNW on Saturday. Sunday is now 5MPH from the west!! Seems like we never catch a break!!

That's a 50% increase in winds on Saturday and 25% on Sunday.

Me too, proven ballast.
Kept the Oculus up for about 20 minutes last weekend for a test with 12oz as a passenger.
No problem!
Of course, on contest day, there will be no thermals!

I once got my 6 minute time hovering 15' over a soccer backstop. I was stymied on the HOW, until I realized it was ridge lift coming over the trees, and bouncing back up, right under where I was circling.

I'll shake my thermal stick for the weekend.



Jared? Say WHAT?
