Wow good work Alex! Fantastic. Great to see Cass Ridge actually produce those numbers! Glad Peter was able to get up to gun.

Yeah man, it has power, but it a small ridge and is not a smooth zone. That tree is a pain in the @$$

Nice Alex! Hopefully the yellow showed up a little better with green trees instead of yellow grass for a background...?

And a big hello to Chris "Daboz" - I hope the fact you're flying doesn't mean the surf is out. You'll be happy to know my shredded Windburner is back up and flying again (Lazarus with a triple bypass ).

Also a comment re RCSpeeds: I noticed the K2M isn't listed in the 80inch category, presumably an oversight.
Glad to hear the Fermin DS WB is back, still surfing and the yes the K2M is already second on the 80" list... (http://rcspeeds.com/aircraft.aspx?AirplaneType=80) and has been since the day it was first flown.

When a pilot gets his PB on the plane and it's over 270 or so it wil also show up on the 80" PB list.

Hey, We call it the South Coast, as it is pretty much the most southern part of Wellington. I guess more accurately it should be called Red Rocks. Thanks Chris,
