Stormchaser 60


I was lucky enough to get one of these awesome planes a few month ago. I've only flown it twice with speeds less than 200.
This one is a lighter version. MKS 6125's with third bearing support frames, 4 cell AA battery in the nose. Quite an amazing plane and good looking in the air. AUW is 51oz.

Bruce Tebo pulled a 369mph run at Weldon yesterday for the outright 60" record. Way to go Bruce and Simon!

Hey 1000MPH where are you flying slope these days in the Reno area? Is the photo up above at a semi local spot? Looks really nice!

Hi Ed,
Sadly I don't fly locally much anymore after we got shot at several years ago on Rattlesnake.
I would go out if I could get some folks together.
We flew Castle Ridge last year which was an adventure.
We also scouted Verdi Peak but that ended up being inaccessible due to thick vegetation that looks like grass in Google Maps.

The pic is from Weldon CA. World class DS spot.

Got a few more laps with the StormChaser this weekend. Still all under 200mph but I didn't get this one for big speeds. I took a few more % of down elevator out. I got some personalized landing instructions from Bruce Tebo. Landing these fast molded planks is an adventure.
