Probably about 270-300. Nobody came and worked the radar for me, would have been great if your were there Nick!

So windy it was actually easy to walk up the hill with 2 planes and two radio boxes, I knew it was gona be good. Wind did drop off pretty fast so maybe it was better nobody came up an hour or two later expecting big air.

Measured a 42mph gust straight in, and didn't drop below 30, the whole hill is green so there's no dust either it was fun. Had a few friends call but nobody could make it up the hill.

Most importantly I got to maiden my new skinny little girl at only 74.8oz...

They're both...

I'm holding the plane and I Photoshop my hands out. The background, the plane and its color are not modified. I waited for the nice clouds. My friend took the shots and they're for DSKinetic.com. Oh the first shot I take out the servo cover on the VTail but that's all.

Tim you’re one of those guys who asks a women’s age aren’t you?

Here's what an untouched shot looks like. Well it's cropped.

It's just that pretty of a plane in really nice clouds! It's too bad that only part of the plane was in the sun or would I probably would have used this shot too.

I'll have some white plane shots when I have a nice backdrop.
