Missing one of the best NE days of the year at Wainui cuz I am stuck at work. Most are away on holiday too, so no-one else to fly with. Xmas also had 20kts average on the flat. Would have been 35kts up at wainui. Probably 40kts today

BUT, Tekapo looks good for the next WEEK!

Tekapo next Tuesday: http://www.windalert.com/spot/96483

Remember, the day during the DS Fest we had our big Tekapo wind, 40-60mph, wind forecast was for 18-32mph on the flat. This forecast is for 23-46mph on the flat!!!

AHHH where are my Kinetics boo hoo

Ok, sounds a plan. I will try get my new Burner going too.

Tim, have you flown much of the new Burner? Kev says the CG is now more forward, any reason that you know of for this?

Sweep on LE.. Not straight like the old ones.
I've only flown the pink one that day , and at memory I flew it at 33mm from the LE at the centre.
And didn't change it. I would have loved to have flown it in lees wind and spend and hour getting it spot on. It was so light , got toss around a lot in that wind and hovered when on the front.
Trim was flush , and it didnt tuck @ 180+ and felt neutral. BUT it may of if we got it over 200 +
I'd start your heavy one forward of that a little and you will be right , just don't want it to tuck at high speed , it's crazy when planks do....

Cool, will set mine at 32.5mm for a start, as removing lead from the nose is easy on site
