Glad to see Eben has settled in NZ.
Jono, please send him my regards and ask him when he is going to be DS'ing the Toko I traded him just before he left. I'm one of his flying buddies back in South Africa.
Cheers,
Izak

I have forwarded your message on to Eben. He does not have all his stuff over from South Africa yet so have not seen the Toko yet

Dunno... Never got to try my hand at DSing and with no DS slopes close to where I stay I only got to do normal sloping with it

Figured that Eben could put it to better use in NZ as this one was custom built for DS (not the standard slope version). Waiting in anticipation to see what Eben can wring out of it

I am sure you could DS Links Field Ridge. Just a pittey about all the houses. But if you kept it slow and foam you would be ok.

What about the magaliesberg. There must be some where along there suitable for a north or south wind?

Just come back after 3 weeks. Lived there for the first 26 years of my life.

I was hoping Gerry would post this awesome speed before the next update. He always has via email, hopefully he’s busy building or flying something even faster. Anyway I have to get this speed on RCSpeeds before he or someone else goes even faster, (who knows) so I’ll use this data, courtesy of Dirk Plug.

Sure Alex, do you know the post number?

Also could you check the post I'm wondering why I didn't post it the first time, maybe I just missed it.

Also, do you have more information on the Smack 60?
