Funnily enough I had a dream last night about bsp, and it was really windy and good direction, but someone decided to put a huge shed right in the zone, and we had to ds under the shed at times lol, anyway here's hoping that means something and they get huge speeds!

Well, had a great afternoon fly at Beechmont. First flight since coming back from NZ. Maidened my new Weasel. Standard built with some lam film added. Shane Spoor was there with some of his awesome looking planes. Sean had his Typhoon plank as well which was damaged on landing into a barbed wire fence.

We call this aircraft carrier landing, and some times practice this art are RE. To high and your over, to low and your in the dry stone wall. Get it right and it will rip your model in half and spit it over the other side and the wall.

An idea from Pat Bowman and Joe Wurts:

Most orbits in 2min.

Starting as top shear is crossed as circuit is entered from front side.

Video evidence required.

That is quite interesting. May need anew thread to get more interest, and keep this clean.

So slower small circuits, or faster large circuits.

One of the lads I fly with says you should always aim for 3 second (if I recall) laps.
Depends on the slope.
