One of those airspeed or onboard radars would be perfect for you Alex. Even if you couldn't claim a record at least you would have a ball park and some more reason to risk the kinetic.

There is no risk for the kinetic in that wind. . It would float in backwards

Didn't do much. Saving models for Wainui on Friday.

Just flew Le Fish for fun (no radar speeds) and radared Rob as he drives a long way and has spent countless laps radaring me!!!

Wind was SW-WSW, Sugarloaf is a S or SSW site. Was gusting to probably 40mph. Very up and down as it was wrapping around and over the hills to the SW.

Wish I had had a 30"...

We had an awesome day DSing in the North Island over the weekend - managed to discover a new site that works in the prevailing NW wind.. Bit small in the back but the kick over the top was incredibly powerfull. Made a video up, sorry its not all DS, the first half is combat, then it gets to the good stuff
