Yippee!

New Bills Hill F3X record!


PITBULL F3B absolutely ripping up the hill! 177MPH! New F3X hill record

AUW was 130oz. Light thermic air.

This is blistering fast and caught on film and the stalker Pro 2 radar. The previous record was 168mph which has stood for 3 years now almost 4.

I knew I was hitting these speeds Bills Hill is just a difficult environment to get readings in. It’s very small so the Cosine angles are a tricky deal. All a bad Cosine angle does is reduce the readings. It can’t increase it.

(3 min 10 sec)

Hi David

Thank you for the comment. I set the overall hill record of 182MPH with the K2m 75oz AUW 3 years ago.

That’s an amazing comparison. K2ms are blindingly fast.

I’ll clarify!

This was my “MKS” PITBULL/JEDI F3B ST/Carboline Sailplane flying at 130oz. AUW.

There was faster laps too. It’s just hard to get readings.

The guys supporting were (George Clarke “Mzilla6”) & (Marty Zimmerman).

My friends in Europe all like the standard Pitbull in heavy conditions vs 2.

Both of my PitBull 2’s went 167mph last season on the same timeframe the PitBull did 167mph also. The Ascot F3F 168mph 3 years ago. Now PitBull light goes177mph. I wish I had my PitBull 2’s right now to compare but they seem very equal to me.

Pitbull 2 handle super nice!

Super super nice!

Great flying Phil! Your camera crew must be able to read your mind...most moves are anticipated and tracked so well. One of my favorite segments is at 1:40 when you make a run for the sun and get some serious altitude amd make a dramatic low pass.

Thank you Adam

That camera guy I have is my helmet cam. I taped a clamp to a bicycle helmet and just use my iPhone. That’s all no tricks to it. I actually like having a helmet on now after a year of wearing it. It has a perfect visor length for my eyes. And the added head protection feels good too.

I wish you would come down and fly. The big casino is only 2 miles from the hill. Pilots can stay over and live it up after flying.

Thx Ray

Btw, you have the #3 fastest pilot ever at Bills Hill with Godzilla. 159mph that was freakin hauling and was the fast speed of the day.

Anyway coming from you I really appreciate the comment.

Thank you.

Come out and fly!
