Really couldn't see much of the site from that video. Looked like a good DS spot from the little I could tell. I would love to fly there sometime being a grass covered hill!

I'd be there in a flash if I could Alex
Got a bit of video from the weekend. The conditions were hurricane force for us DS newbs. Jonos wind meter measured 65km/h at the top. But it felt more like 165, your beanie would start lifting off whenever you launched a model. It turns out that the backside of pukerua bay is a bit small for conditions like these, but we tried our hardest to survive a few consecutive laps lol.

that would be unreal! Im gonna have a hard time getting used to the big winds when I get over there. I think I will have to reassess what I think of as a heavy plane before I go!
