Eh. As much crashing I do with F3F and MOM I figure I might as well do it right and crash doing something where it is expected every so often.

Cool is very subjective.

Hey James, yeah just haven't been flying much lately. Surf and golf around working to much. Plus BH hasn't been working for me, but hopefully it is going to start. Ray sorry to hear about your lost plane. I am up for any day this weekend. Sounds like Ray has a Saturday preference. What does everyone think? Even if the wind is not great, hanging with the bros and beers sounds fun.

Saturday is out for me, we're going to the fair. I wanted to go Sunday to the Fair but my wife's family has some other plans on Sunday.

I've got a Drs appointment Tuesday PM so after that I plan to fly BH.

Eddie,

James M and Alex has nice vids of DSing at Blossom. Have one of them show you next time.

James Monday is out for me. This year has been bad for flying for me. I'm lucky to get couple hours free to do my stuff. I even bought a DLG thinking I'd get some time flying that but I have'nt even learned to DL it yet.

Ray,

I have a DLG that I still haven't flown. Maybe we should hit up FreeGlide for a groups discount on teaching us to DLG???

hey, guys


new to dsing and i am hooked.

i have a jw60 that i have been flying the heck out of. am still learning and learned a lot today. been doing figure 8s lately flying the whole hill not just circles.

my question. i really want a foam plane to ds not a wing. i have the jw as the plank. i was looking at the P51D or the U2 dragon lady on this site.

http://www.californiasailplanes.com/

or this plane..

http://www.leadingedgegliders.com/ep...pp_Tsunami.php

not sure which one would be the best for dsing.. like i said i want a plane that is a little more stable then my jw60..

my jw weighs 60 oz. and the place i am flying at could even handle more weight and i live in Nebraska go figure.

i found a heck of a hill or should i say a Dyke..

let me know what you guys think..

later Andrew K.
