Just tested it today to make sure she flies ok with her new induced dihedral, ha... SHE GOT A LITTLE BENT ONE Record day at Norco all out n 60" 487/360. Wouldn’t be supprised if the foamy records was close too.
That day I was flying her early testing the wind while Spencer was putting the K100 togeterh probably as fast or faster than I’ve ever flew foam and she got a little tweaked... But she DS’d great at Norco today.
AND WOW, socal hills are soooo green right now, love that rain! Look at the GREEN landing area, (I don’t know if it’s ever looked so good), how clear it was, the snow on the peaks and even great air to boot!

Until it swings just true north you are generally fine. Of course anything is a tossup but if a report showed NNE and the live weather looked good more east than north or if the day before was more east, then i would still go...
Its hard to say because some people won't be happy with the weather if they aren't going 300mph, or 400 now for all i know ..... but its pretty rare to get skunked in parker, especially during E-NE winds.

I ended up going to Parker yesterday but the wind was pretty light.
I'm not going up today but the forecast looks good for those who make the trip up.
Wednesday looks even better with a wind warning.

We went to Parker this afternoon. I got up there around 2:30 and Bruce an Alan had already flown. Alan flew his Sunbird with gyro to 171 mph and he also had top speed of 302 with his D-80 with gyro both were airspeed not ground speed by radar. Bruce had his D-60 sucked down on the back side and put it in to the side of the hill. He also flew his K-100 to 276 late in the afternoon. I flew my Vectors DS. It was rather bumpy the whole day and I did not get a speed check.
It was fun. Always good to ring in the New Year with some good DS'ing and great camaraderie.
