Good Winds Oct. 22, 2012


Hey Now
Good winds are starting to blow. Bruce and I met at Weldon today about 1 o'clock the winds where blowing from the south west at about 25 to 30 mph with gust to 42 mph. with a smooth entry and good power. At about 2 o'clock we started getting some rain , started getting cold and the wind started blowing from the west right off the lake which made it a little bumpy on entry and the bottom turn. The rains were on and off in the late afternoon.

Bruce flew his Destiny
Kinetic 100 @ 353 mph. his airframe pb on his 4th flight
Molded JW @ 248 mph. just short of record
He also maidend my new D-80 @ 264 mph.

I flew my Opus @ 198 mph.
No speeds when I flew my D-80 bad air and started to rain.

Pics are Burce's K 100
My D-80
My Opus and D-80 and Burce's now Famous Molded JW

Wow sounds like a great day Tim! Gee if Bruce can do 353 with that K100 and nearly break the record with the molded JW when the wind's off angle, we're looking forward to seeing the results on a good day! I'll bet your Opus felt good at 198. Thanks for the report, great to hear from you.

Sounds like a fun day. Good to see you back on the hill, Tim.
Weldon needs rain, it's looking a little bald right now.

Bruce's molded JW weight in at 92oz. He also tied his record today @ 252 mph. He said that they should have gone to Bird Springs, the wind was higher than Weldon.
