We are re-structuring the forums, so that all topics will appear here, rather than being split up into the various different areas. The advantage of this is that it will be easier to navigate; and topics with the most recent posts will appear at the top of the list.

*Weather and Site warning*

Postby Crawford Coulson » Wed Jun 02, 2021 10:34 am

The weather continues to give us testing conditions, from the previous very unstable and unsettled conditions to the high pressure gusty and turbulent ones right now.

Don’t feel pressured to launch if others are launching/flying but you feel it’s a bit too much for you. Some amazing flights are being flown in these conditions but usually by current and very experienced pilots!

If you do fly then be doubly prepared– in setting up, during launch, in the air, coming in to land and gaining control of the wing after landing. Expect to encounter turbulence and gusts and rocket thermals at any time.

Please fly with extra caution when on a site with rock like Corndon. Rock heats and releases thermals hence the possibility of unpredictable air and is far less forgiving should you fall onto it.

Fly safe!
