"After a little 'Kiss' at Twywell with the Strike, got the wing tip repaired & decided even though it was pretty windy time for a test flight. 

Nice bit of lift & the Strike only needed slight trim (love this thing!)

Only time for a couple of flights but managed a 2:52.

Hope this will be the first of many....where are those mini Go's Lads!?!?

This is a for fun challenge, anyone with a hand-launch glider that conforms to the Mosquito (less than 1m) class can post a time.
Object: Fly your  Mosquito class hand launch glider for as long as possible from a flat field, the person who's time is unbeaten for 14 days 'wins' and a new challenge starts.

Rules: Fly safely. No slope soaring.

Please post your times as follows:-. Pilot Name, F3K or Mosquito class, model name, length of flight minutes and seconds, plus date of flight. Previous challenges for 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 can be seen at www.f3k.uk

First two seem to have been damaged by wild behaviour... mine only arrived on Friday just before I had to leave for a weekend away so unopened at work!

Took an hour out of work as conditions were superb today!!!

Finally managed to keep in lift & specked out, tbh a barge would have found lift today!
