Not much I can say except. My orange RX failed on a huge pump.
No elevator control. It went in full speed. The wind was ripping. The fastest I have ever flown. I was loving it.
I will miss the Meteor.

Flying conditions


Being from out of town, I do not know the particulars about flying Fermin. Which wind direction is ideal and now many degrees off of ideal to the right and left can there be and still produce lift? Looks like re forecast is for 8 MPH WSW for today. How heavy can a 60" plane be in that wind condition?

Not sure where you are getting your data but Fermin was above 20mph today and out of the wsw to w. To answer your question - you could toss a 5 to 7 pounder in that wind.
