What's your favorite Weather forecast site and Why?

Greg,
i don't trust any of the local forecasts but the one's I've just looked at predict this 15mph Santa Ana wind at 1am Saturday.. i think I'll stake my bets on when it supposed to switch back west for a while in the afternoon tho I see it will likely only be half that strong from 1 to 3pm..

Yours in slope fortune telling
JimS..

One of the locals at Dave's beach, Mike, is getting out of the hobby. He has an Optic 6, some receivers, a ridge runner, radier, an old Sloper Steve 36 inch Slo Fly, covering and some misc stuff for around $200. He does not want to ship but will meet at Dave's.

PM me for his contact info if you;re interested. Mike does not visit RCgroups.

I'm not a huge bettor on forecasts either, but I'm getting the itch to fly and if I can nab some good wind I'd like to! If it looks decent in the AM my buddy Ed and I will be trying to hit either poway or hodges.

yea, I feel that itch too.. ever fly here? in an East wind .. this sites close to me so I've tried it, but the wind's been too northerly to make it worth while when i was there it was only 6 to 8 and NE.. Good Luck. JimS

Exaura,

I sent you a PM of Mikes phone number.

The Optic 6 is a few years old the WW are flyable but have been flown so they are not pristine. Mike has a box of partial rolls of covering - I know there is ultracoat in the box. He also had a covering iron.

Mikes been trying to sell what he has the last few months.

Hello Everyone

Hello everyone. I just joined the forum. I recently moved to Carlsbad from L.A. My family and I love it here. It's like a big playground. This lead me to get back into RC soaring after being out of it for more than 10 years. I discovered the bluffs at Palomar Airport road but the was wondering where everyone flies during the Santa Ana's?
