Wings on the Hill 6/14/18


Finally the proper direction wind returned today {NW} with 18 to 20 called for and gust's to 40 ... And 75 degrees temperature
I dont even remember what its like to fly without gloves on

I flew my Leg ODR -26oz
G.E.M.S Knife Edge -26 oz
My 48" Dan Wing {repaired from a hard landing in Cleveland last month} 32 oz

And took another shot at re maidening My 48" Dan Wing - Brat
It took another 6 oz of lead to the nose to balance bringing it to a 35.4 oz.
All the planes flew well in the conditions {gusty with big thermals rolling through} ,but once balanced the Brat at 35 + oz was a rocket in the lift with Huge pumps and strafing runs close to the top.
What a Blast !
Summer is finally here
