Sounds like a fabulous day was had by all (well most) in the end, wish I had been able to make it.

 

Well done to all, sounds like it was a feat to actually get to the slope!

Well, I'm hoping for a bit more speed this w/e.

 

Been fettling the Vampire since the tail fins were loose, not even mating up the incidence pins :drool:

 

Then I found a nice big crack in the fus back of the wings where it had been "strengthened"  :o

 

So it's had some external carbon applied.  :thumbsup:

 

Added weight should not be a problem this w/e  :D

Hi Stu,

No where near as fast as Whitesheet  :P 

 

Pole Cot with a decent blow should see consistent sub 40 sec runs. add in a thermal or two and low 30s are very achievable.

Not sure what the record would be at the moment, far too few comps run in decent conditions, I think it is around mid 30s.

mmmmm

 

Average wind speed for last 4 hours : ~41 knots - gusting to 57  :o

 

which is a bit more n 25mph I tinks  :huh:   (41kn = 47.18196 mph actually)

 

So, just for academic interest, what is the upper wind speed limit for F3F - if there is one?
