Electroglide Report from 4/16/11


I mentioned Zero Wind and that’s the way it was for the first toss. Four of us got landing points and the longest flight was almost 8 minutes! However, after the first toss the wind increased and really made landing points tough to get. Going from a zero velocity to about 10mph certainly makes it a challenge to get our light wing loading Radians into pay dirt.

The wind did indicate more thermal activity and several pilots had a tough time getting on the ground in the proscribed 10 minutes. All in all, it was a fun morning. We were finished the competition in 45 minutes and from the responses, eveyone had a great time! Next Electroglides: May 21st and the special one, May 28th. Check the Club web site regarding the barbeque on the 28th Don’t miss either of these events. (Open Class and Easy Star pilots are still welcome!)
