Cool
_I.E. slope site_____________Little Mountain SLOPE SITE.a place for video,pics+info..

One of the Inland Empires premier slope locations. Very consistent hill at about 425 ft facing West for the onshore winds. Also has a Santa Ana winds spot on the back, great from the NW but choppy on the NNE but huge all around. West is our typical wind direction and we also call this place the 4oclock hill.

Directions....use www.MAPQUEST.com to find Shandin Hills golf course (San Bernardino, Ca.)......coming from the south of Shandin Hills golf course you will pass the golf course and go up the curved road to the peak and turn on the only right (east) dirt road with a sign that says "survelliance in progress"......follow that road to the first fork and stay right and go up and to the antenna tower and then go right to the flat spot 120 yards below..park and launch.


LEG patriot...22mph outta the west/UPDATED WEEKLY VIDS/PICS/INFO

going wild with the Patriot (2 min 54 sec)

/O.NEW.KSGX.WI.Y.0062.080330T1900Z- 080331T0300Z/ SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY MOUNTAINS-RIVERSIDE COUNTY MOUNTAINS- SAN DIEGO COUNTY MOUNTAINS- 337 AM PDT SAT MAR 29 2008
...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 12 PM TO 8 PM PDT SUNDAY...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN SAN DIEGO HAS ISSUED A WIND ADVISORY... WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 12 PM TO 8 PM PDT SUNDAY.

AREAS OF WEST TO SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL STRENGTHEN TO 20 TO 30 MPH SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING WITH GUSTS TO 45 MPH. STRONGEST WINDS WILL BE NEAR THE RIDGETOPS AND ON THE DESERT SLOPES.

A WIND ADVISORY MEANS THAT WINDS OF 35 MPH ARE EXPECTED. WINDS THIS STRONG CAN MAKE DRIVING DIFFICULT... ESPECIALLY FOR HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES. USE EXTRA CAUTION.


although the golf course at the bottom of the hill says

. 10am Mostly Cloudy
55F
54F 10% 42F 62% From SW 6 mph

11am Mostly Cloudy
58F
57F 20% 41F 53% From SW 7 mph

12pm Mostly Cloudy
59F
58F 20% 40F 49% From WSW 8 mph

1pm Partly Cloudy
60F
58F 20% 40F 48% From WSW 10 mph

2pm Partly Cloudy
60F
58F 20% 39F 46% From WSW 11 mph

3pm Partly Cloudy
60F
58F 20% 38F 44% From WSW 12 mph

Evening Commute Test Your Golf Rules IQ

4pm Mostly Sunny
61F
61F 20% 37F 41% From WSW 12 mph

5pm Mostly Sunny
60F
58F 10% 37F 42% From WSW 13 mph

6pm Mostly Sunny
58F
56F 10% 37F 45% From WSW 11 mph

so
a 13 max is about 18 on the top?or more...anyways i'll be there and i'll be calling jon + al ..its just a forecast,,,prediction of the future and they've been wrong lots of times...

rg15 on a plank is not the best. Its gonna take alot of reflex and thus it will most likely be a slow flyer. Look at a MH32 or MH45. my 2 cents
