Electroglide Report for April 2021

The Electroglide has finally returned to Mission Bay after a yearlong absence. It was great to have this competition start up again at our flying site.

 The weather conditions were great with clear skies and a westerly 6 mph breeze.

 The event timer conditions however, were not so great. With a broken iPod causing a short delay in the first launch, Eileen Struthers rose to the occasion by manually announcing the launch start, motor off point, landing times and bonus points earned for each pilot.

 We were not keeping flight scores on this first Electroglide competition since the Covid lockdown; however several pilots repeatedly found great lift just North West of our runway with some flights lasting eight to nine minutes in length.

 Thanks to all the pilots who came out for the Electroglide last Saturday. The next Electroglide will be on May 15th, with a 10:00 start time.

Enjoy the pictures of Saturday’s event, supplied by club member Frank Sutton.

See you next month,

Jeff Struthers

Electroglide is Back!
