@Andy Sephton   Hi Andy,   I was at Buckminster yesterday flying F3K.    Didn't get chance to come over.

You guys were getting huge launches off the bungee yesterday.    Would you mind answering a few questions for me.

1) How much ballast were you guys typically using on the Sunday?

2) What spec / make of bungee were you using.

thank you.
