rcspeeds.com added location info including GoogleEarth Links


1. Finally got the one speed per person per location.

Now a bunch of US show up in some of the locations that were dominated by some of the faster pilots.

For instance I and a few of my friends are back on the Weldon Report... All the locations should now report speeds this way.

Issues??? Let me know here.

NEW LONG LIST
long list now has one entry per pilot.

NEW PILOTS GRID AND DAY GRID
from some reports you can now go to a Pilots Grid or a Day grid to see the speeds for any pilot or Grid.

Check out Spencers List of Speeds or the Fastest Day On Record


SURE WOULD LIKE INFORMATION OR PICTURES FOR:

PLANES:

TYPHOON 100

KAMIKAZE 2.5M

PushyCat




PLACES
Long Reef, Sydney, Australia

Morte Point

Abbots Hill

OR ANY OTHERS

thanks Warren, now anyone can click on their name in the long list and see their speeds.

You could also click on the Pilots Grid, check the Sort By Pilot checkbox and then click the little airplane next to your name. The Pilots Grid page also has # of Speeds entered, MAX speed, # of planes entered, avereage speed entered and the # of hills flow for each of us...


yea lets fly soon, glad you made it to Weldon.

Thanks Steve, very cool, always like adding a new hill somewhere in the world. If you can send us a picture of the hill too that would be great. If you want people to know where it is, a google map is nice, or an earthlink. When you send your speeds please send the name of the radar gunner too.

Looking forward to you new speeds I'll get your hill in and send us a pic if you have one.


thanks

Chris

Yeah Chris thanks. Photos look great. Might be good to change the title to "Lemontree".

Not keen on the google links/ directions as it's a private property so it's not an open access situation. We have permission from the owner, but it's on a limited basis.

Thanks will do.

The 148 was done by my friend Craig in the Northern spot I marked, the wind needs to be from the ENE or NE to extract max energy. The 108 I did a while ago is in the more Southerly location and works when the wind is NNE. I think Matt Chang did a 110 Speed with his JW60 in the Northern Spot. I've seen that speed somewhere in your list.

I'm no expert at KMZ files so please fix and make pretty as required.

The season is just starting for us here and we are building a pile of JW60s to see what their limit is at this site. We also have another site down in Sydney Habour, will supply info on that as soon as we post the first speed.
