Landing a TWF up there is kinda interesting. The main LZ is in dead air so it's near impossible to slow them down. Pop and drop on the astroturf works ok when it's not crowded. They just skid a really long way.

I'm really looking forward to it!

Might need to put a wheel/brake on it then

Might have to try a landing technique I heard of - approach at speed then whack full aileron on to slow down

Just had an Idea hit me in the back of the head . Most who attended last year will remember the hand launch antics in front of the cabin on the quite day . How about
hand launch comp for Alua's ? it would be a morning event before the wind come on
Longest flight time best of 3 launches max flight time say 5 minutes on the clock .
could be good for a laugh I know aston cracl his first thermal there and was stoked about it so specking them out from the hand launch is completely doable. Whatcha think ? we could even do it in own design as well to a strict span limit though. Idea's thoughts? Some good idea's on the link Stu thanks.

Where is my "good at doing artwork on the computer" gene. Hmmm, I am sure it is with my "good at doing any artwork" gene.

Jezz is that the time.
Here's a couple of ideas (well, 1 in 3 different colours)
only the gold and black goes down onto whatever coloured t-shirt you like so it would be easy (and prob. cheap) to print
Feedback very welcome. It can easily be changed

Have you got a printer sorted? Talking to a customer yesterday and figured out he does shirt printing for a living. Let me know if you want a quote
