...So 30 second air is +74 mph? Cool. Not bad for sustained speed over a number of laps without one of those twirly things on the front

10 X 100 meter legs. The course is 100 meters from pole to pole.

There's a short video on the home page of www.sloperacing.com, and some videos of Whitepoint specifically on www.soaringusa.com (Demo videos).

Cheers,

Im glad to hear that, I thought I was just way slow in my first and only race, because at about lap 6 or 7 I would hear a 1 minute signal from the timer, but we were doing 8 laps (16 legs) at 100 meters during the 60" foam races I beleive. so if we were doing 1600 meters at 70 to 80 secs I guess that wouldnt be too horibly bad for a first timer anyway never mind because I know it was awful, I was there and every other corner was terrible, but we'll work on it, maybe some day I will be able to actually do 15 turns without slowing the plane down to a crawl on half of them.

It was a case I already had and don't use anymore, so don't worry about it. I'm still holding you to lunch though. Maybe I'll order fries too.
