Precision 1 f3f
Grass Mountain
136mph
Bruce/Dominick
No gyro

Probably could have gone faster, when i hit 136 i was happy...i was a bit worried about fluttering my ship but i was really starting to get in the groove, tho shaking like a lab rat

I believe that's the plan Alex. Possibly in the evening glass-off. At least that's what I'm planning.
Got to get mine built first.

Unfortunately yes...I say that in reference to the mound of 3m plane parts in my garage.

Thanks guys! Alan showed me a different line to fly, so I got to make some decent progress.

On the subsequent flight, I made a mistake which put me lower and slower than I should have been ,and couldn't recover from said mistake. The damage didn't seem terrible, but it was more than I was willing to repair. So... sadly... I'm now D40-less. Just gives me more time to focus on the Bouncer!
