Well m8 ,

   It may have been gods before you moved away , But now its my Island  :nananana:.
              um unfortunately its going to be very East for the next couple of days , so only Chalbury Hill fort .
             Which is off of combe valley road Preston if it helps , if it swings South East then Sutton Poynts Bowl will be best  :)

                   Hope that Helps Ed  :af

That's awesome thanks. Unfortunately it looks like shopping is the priority today, but I am going try this afternoon.

Thanks again for the info. I will post the almost inevitable destruction!

Managed to fly at Sutton Poyntz yesterday for a couple of hours after abandoning a clagged up Swyhe Head. We flew on the left hand side of the bowl past the path. was ok not flown from that bit before. landing area and tbulance free is good too.

still want to fly swyre head when its not claggy though.

Good Luck Stu n Ade ,
       Hope you have a good time in welsh wales , isn't it . :ev

     Me I just flew Portland in a North wind from blacknore forte  :nananana:

      I launched from the radio mast and took it round the corner , first time Ive ever tried and the lift was amazing , just a shame that the path is so thin , cos i had to walk back round to land it . But at least i don't have to go to Dorchester for North winds now.  ;)

      Oh and When the carbon phoon arrives, and gets built , im gonna be aving a go at this F3F malarcky too

Sounds like a good weekend. I had a quick session on Saturday but like you am looking forward to some big equinoctal gales. I reckon a couple of Winter F3F events might feature in my calendar too.

Im off to maiden the

    RAPIDO SPEEDO , ::)

       auw is 410 grams , so about 1 Ilb near as damn .
                  This is 25 grams heavier than a standard build , so 1 oz  more weight for a foam /obeechi wing with wing bandage .

     Im very happy with the Results , although im a little worried because there is Less Diheadral than on the original , so wings are level . Im not sure how this will effect the flight envelope , i guess it shouldnt be a problem .

       Wish me luck cos its about to try a 200 Ft cliff launch for a maiden Flight  :af

It does look really nice sunny Saturday with 18 mph Westerly and then a sunny cloudy Sunday with 30mph WNW   

            That's pretty perfect by my reckonings .
                   Hope i can get away from the Mrs wanting me to do chore  :banghead:

Well weather sucked after all , :-\
                             but the Sun came out at 3 oclock the winds where 15 mph West so off i went for play on my cliffs . :af
           It wasnt spectacular , but it wasnt bad , the Rapido speedo performed as expected , Man its so fast that its crazy .
                     Had an hour or so Hooning around , great fun , cracked the fuse behind the repair i had made , But a little Zap will touch it back up , you do not realise how good it is to have wings that just splt apart on impact instead of sturdy bolt on ones that stay more solid than the fuse .

                  Great fun anyway , and a few cracks is not the end of the world .

Yes Mate  ^-^ , off the cliffs

 i really would like to have a go at Night flying  :af,
                  The cliffs aren't as scary as most people think , your guaranteed lift if its in the right direction , and a nice steady 10mph wind on the cliffs is easily equal to a 15/20 on a slope with regards to lift anyway , the problem will be seeing where to land , but the fields for landing in are large enough to kinda go anywhere .
            Got lots to build at the moment , and all my spare cash is tied up in new servos, battery's and all the other components needed to finish 3 brand new models(Reaper/Alula and Carb Typhoon) and 1 repaired mini blade DS to re-kit out  :D

 Lots to do and as I'm Santa again this year :o , and not much time to do it all.

 Oh the Joys of Parenthood  :uk:

Good News for Locals,

       I have Found a New Flying site on portland , Easily accessable for East to South East , Great Lift as with any cliffs ,
    Although Landing is restricted a bit , Had a great hour there yesterday at 5.30 in the evening in 5 mph SE wind with the Alula . it was obvious that it would work well in bigger winds .
                  Personally i wouldn't want to fly Big Moldy planes there , but overall its a nice site.
             The place ,
                      Bumpers lane    :af    if you look on google maps put in Bumpers lane Portland then look at satellite image and go to the end of the lane at the cliff edge . it has public access but has working quarry's around so park on the road outside .

Well ,
            Looked at the weather forcast for today , looked E maybe SE . so checked portland wind readings live and it was SE @ 10 knots .
 So loaded the car up .
     Typhoon , Miniblade ,Reaper, Fox,Speedo and the Alula .
                                       Drove to the White horse track , carefully navigating down the track with more holes than Blackburn Lancashire.
 walked over the back of the field to find .

       BLOODY  NOTHING,  NOT A BLOODY breath of wind , even the Alula was just circling and landing . :banghead:

  Moral of this story is . Don't go Over prepared , on account when the wind gods feck you over its more trips to the car  :banghead:

                     Oh well the weekend don't look much more promising , bungee over the field it may end up

            But I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for a steady 15mph wind  :xx,

Nice re flight of the Phoon at Sutton Poyntz Bowl today  :af .
         Rusty Knee was there with Pinky ripping around (Vikos) , although it was a little bumpy in patches  .
                             still satisfying setting the flaps for a more regulated Braking
 system so cheers for that Stu  :af.

          Such a lovely place , shame it was so straight on , didn't give the bowl much chance to be as good as it can be .  But still nicer than staying at home .

                      West winds coming , so the cliffs will be the place to be for the next couple of weeks , if anyone is interested in having a go , give me a shout , but chances are if its going off on west cliff , i will already be over there  :uk:

Yeah was very pleasent Bob even if a bit fresh :)

Pinky is a Vikos chap :)...my Tragi is yellow.....probably should fly Trudi more often....not flwn it since getting pinky last year.

Was good to see yer phoon...will be interested to see with ballast in. No worries about the radio tweaks, is the elevator compensation linear now?

Iain (Swalleau) had his Stingray ripping it up after we left there. SOunded like he had a hoot on the text I got.

That thing off Portland is gonna be fun!

Stingray of the cliffs at Portland.  Yeah, 'spose it was alright :''

Thought the Skorp and Vikos were going well.  That Skorp sound is great.

Didn't notice the rotor on landing though........ ;D

That skorp does play some tunes! Bobs 'phoon makes a good noise and zips around good too.

      Stingray was Amazing ,
          and as always the Scorp and Vikos rock in quality lift , You will have to come again Ian  :af.
                                  I managed to get all the ballast in the phoon after you had gone , it just got better and better , :nananana:

                 Also looking forward to it tomorrow aswell , most of the week is forecast for West , so i will be over the cliffs most days .
              Great Flying and Great company  :af

Was a good day.  Glad you got all the lead in Bob. :af :af :af  Lead is good.

Thanks to Stu for the vids and Adrian for launching.  Makes a nice change as I've always launched the Stingray myself until today.

Hopefully the weather will get stuck like this for the summer..... :''

Hi guys i will be down in Dorset last week in July/first week in Aug...I flew the cliffs at Portland with BobbyR last year, I hope to get some flying in whilst I'm down your way...Mr E (Slopetrash) will be in the area, so perhaps a group fly-in might be the thing to go for (Portland Speed trials anyone?)..
Anyone fly other than Sat /Sun...traffic from Ringwood to Portland on those day can be a bit of a Bummer...mid week would be good.
I have flown Ringstead an Win Green introductions to other sites would be good...
BobbyR, I will PM you when I'm down there....whats your best days?

Re: Dorset Is Chuffing Klass Slopers

I'm off work this week and next so was thinking about booking a few days down in Dorset.... currntly theres a nice gaff showing up on laterooms but it is in Sherbourn so appears to be a bit of a drive to Portland, I am planning at least one day on a slope somewhere, will probably only bring the Needle, Sunbird (if its finished) and maybe the Binary 900 (DLG) so I can leave the car seats up for the trip..

Any thoughts on suitable locations to fly - portland looks like it might be on the list.  From XCWeather, it looks like it might be anything from W to SW or even North... and light too....

Dont forget the purbecks ? you can fly most directions if you dont mind a short walk and with the prevalling sea breeze popping up in the afternoon it can be northly winds in poole but southerly along the coast,
smedmore overlooking kimmeridege is a good slope but a tight frontside landing !
wessex hang & paragliding site lists a few suitable slopes.

Always nice in the purbecks !

Creech hill car park/picnic site is always a good starting point, to see which way the winds going and for the view.

If you want any more info you can pm me.

So looks like the wind is going to be N - NNE for the next couple of days - I was going to bring the Needle and Sunbird but now the Sunbird is in bits so ust the Needle and I may bring a 900mm span DLG..... 

Are there any slopes which aren't S - SW facing?  $%&

East creech hill overlooking creech farm campsite,  N-NW, park by road and 10 min stroll up hill, good landing, trees at bottom of hill thou,
West side of corfe castle can fly N-NE to east, short,steep walk, not the best of slopes but flyable, landing ok, some BIG gorse bushes on slope!
If a sea breeze pops up you can also fly east to south east at swyre head, 20 min walk, fantastic slope, good landing.
