Bruce and I had fun at Parker yesterday morning. Alternating flights with our K2m, we swapped top speeds back and forth on every flight starting at 424 me, then 438 Bruce, then 456 me, then 459 Bruce. I could only muster a 444 after Bruce's 459 and it was clear conditions were softening so we packed it up and called it good. Landings were a little iffy so neither of us was too eager to throw our TSXs.

Congrats Bruce on pushing your K2m PB up a few mph. Sure was a fun morning of racing...

new PB


Hello,

after month with low winds, today a turbulent day with 40-70 km/h Wind and 10 degree C... "perfect" conditions.
Steffen and me skip working and have a nice afternoon.

Steffen catch a new PB with the DS Diva

Pilot: Steffen Bayer
Plane: DS Diva
Location: near Wertheim Germany
Speed: 187 mph
Witness: Jörg Duggen
Radar: Pocket Radar
Gyro: NO
Date: 11/3/21

for info.. the Jeti speed sensor save 300,8 kmh instead of 301 at Radar... good result.

I get some good laps with 250 to 285 kmh, but no read at higher speeds.

nice day, Saturday next try.

Other German speeds will follow,

Jörg

next new PB


yesterday Uwe, Steffen and myself makes a trip to Mordor, a 260 km tavel one way. Tanks to the locals Robert, Claas and all the other, that we can fly to this nice spot.

The winds was pretty good, but with big variation between 30 to 70 mh. Robert makes a 431 kph fly.
After some training during the first laps and good tips from Robert, i get a new PB of 331 kph with my self made DS Diva.

Pilot: Jörg Duggen
Plane: DS Diva
Location: near Colone, Germany
Speed: 206 mph
Witness: Uwe Heuer
Radar: Stalker Pro ??
Gyro: NO
Date: 13/3/21

When I caculate the 331 kph to miles, i get 206 mph. At the gun its 196 ... what ist correct?

Nice Day with new friends, hope we see us soon.

The big number at the gun is the last measured speed of the last lap, the small number is the peak-speed over all, both are kph
331 kph - 206 mph ist correct.
The gun is Stalker Pro II

By the way:

So I converted one of Yuri Virchenkos Xplus airframes to slope/DS.... The maiden was 150s and was able to build it to 178 when we started hearing some flutter on the last flight yesterday in 25-35 MPH conditions
Yesterday was a success and with some more mods I think she's got a lot more in her
I have flown this model years ago to way over 200 with a kontronic mini pyro
Pretty stoked on the first day
