Hi Alex and the rest of the crew,

well done, was the praise for wind really successfull, or however you would say it. I just came back from some flying to 130mph with my SRTL, then 510 seam unreal, great you made it after all this enthusiastic work, I feel you deserve that great day.
Looking forward for some good videos, but as always, the guys with you that really saw it got the real thing.

Greetings and go for it Bjoern

Thanks you all! I'm super happy so many of my friends were there to be part of it.

The Transonic was so locked in, if I'd flown for longer, I feel we could have got a higher number, but the air was good, so many had travelled so far, and now we have a new 400 member after I landed, congrats ASTO!! Homemade plane too bud then new pb for Brent (Air went a bit bad or he would have also been 400)

Congratulations. I wish I could have been there to see that too. That is going so fast that the plane won't even show up on the videos.

What took you so long Alex ?

But seriously, that was a fantastic effort. World-class pilot, plane and DS site. Awesome stuff. I look forward to you pushing the boundary even more.
