I did the 11am - 2pm shift today and caught some really active, even explosive, air. Best part was that I was finally able to maiden this sexy thang.

Skiing Saturday, but flying again Sunday somewhere...

Love that vertical! What kind of paint did you use on the peg?

Gee, guys, isn't it hard to throw with the snow shoes on?

I'd go out and do some flying, but it's only 71 here in Arizona and I"m out of sun tan oil!!

Not to mention that if I tried to spin, I'd go flat on my face.

Thanks Rick! 204gr raw; 211.5gr @ 66.5mm. After mincing around every possible tenth of a gram, it was soooo painful to throw nearly 8 FAT GRAMS in the nose once I was done. That's nearly the entire delta between it and my standard. At least half of it is in a 650mah battery.

Well thank you Thomas! I'm pretty sure your peg will hold up a _lot_ better than my DIY paint jobs...which I'm thinking should be only on the outboard surface of the peg in the first place. Although it's fun to see your fingers wear through the paint and primer...

David, a surprise visit from my son tonight/tomorrow means I'm almost certainly out tomorrow.

BTW no sunshine at Crystal, was cold AF and a very firm, chalky, empty groomer kind of day, which is very not my style...but it sure was fun absolutely maching gobs and gobs of vertical from 8:30 to 1pm. Scratches a whole other kind of itch. Still very like flying.

Friday evening at Stevens was epic. If you know the Mel Brooks Space Balls movie, there is fast, light speed fast and then Ludicrous Fast. I got a 40 mph reading near the bottom of Big Chief

You both need to set your sights on Toby's record. You have the physical size - Ape index and athletic ability...and you are young with time to improve. If I can tear a ham and go from 40 back to 74 meters you guys should be able to hit 90 in all the glory of youth you possess.
