I know it's kinda juvenile in the "speed" category, but I've yet to get my little 48" Devastator DTV "chevron wing" on the list for some reason(154 mph), even though it's been submitted multiple times...

JOe Z was there as a witness, and on the gun I THINK. I'm sure he can pipe in with specifics, as it was the same day(within about 10min) of him going 250 with the Dessy and Kinetic..

JOe?


Thanks!

I flew the 60" glass Banana to 130 mph on Jones yesterday witnessed by Ian, Karl, and Nick.

I've gone faster at Glacier ridge summer 2006 with a 133mph witnessed by about 25 people.

BTW I'm_Rick_James has the LJ60 record at 132mph I think.

Fridays Speeds

Here are the speeds that i wrote down. Im aware that we were not really concerned about the speeds yesterday, but some how they become more important later on. We had two radar guns run at two locations. Some distance apart. For this reason i might find a discrepency. Ill post these here for now and then place them on the "Fastest" when confirmed if there is a consensus.

Date:10-5-07 Location: Lake Isabella, CA Windspeed 30mph plus.

Mike Simonynamic 239, Kinetic 214, Opus 252
Jason Lilly: Thundertaker 294, Dynamic 282
Nic Stong: Dynamic 262, Opus 222, Thundertaker 207, Opus 250, (edited) Wizzard118 inverted
Joe Manor: Dynamic 301, Opus 230
Gary Leggerton: Dynamic 262, Opus 205
Joe Zepeda: Dynamic 285, Bird 195, Opus 250 edited (thank you Joe)
John Buxton: Dynamic 279, Extreme 282, thundertaker 199, Opus 256, Wizzard 159
Spencer Lyzenby: Opus___?, Dynamic___? He left before i arrived.

Charlie Belting was kind in operating one of the radar guns. He has a very tired arm today. thank you so much Charlie.

Yup going to Norco tomorrw (edited)

Dynamic pilots.

Im trying to find a speed for Spencer on the Dynamic. Can any one who was at Weldon, Windmills, or Norco remember his Dynamic speeds? I remember 270s at Norco, he had left Isabella before i arrived, and i seem to remember his flying at Windmills, though Joe Manor wasnt sure. If there are dates and speeds it would be nice to include all those who have flown the Dynamic.

The best i can find for Spencer on the Dynamic is 260 on 10-7-07, and 240 for the Opus. Im sure he had faster speeds but unless some one comes forward with a radar reading, Ill keep them as such.
