Yep - it was really good this am. with the SW wind dead on the slope at 15-20mph. I shot some more vid here - all close-up stuff as the cam doesn't have a zoom, so if you get too far away you can't see owt  :co


Nice vid  :af

Will have to head over to Maesknoll soon  :ev

Weekend looking NE or possible North, anyone out to play?  :ev


I'm heading down to Brean - Lulsgate is currently showing NNE @ 9mph http://weather.noaa.gov/weather/current/EGGD.html and XC weather is forecasting winds of 15ish later. Current temp is 3o - brrrr :-\

Looks like there may be a few guys from the main forum heading that way too...
Cheers, Geoff

Hi Tim - Cam sounds good. Last time I was there was a glorious late summer day, flying my DLG in a light breeze but booming thermals, in formation with enough swallows to make Alfred Hitchcock turn in his grave. :af

I met up with Isoaritfirst, Andy_B & Mark(?) down at Brean - some impressive DS flying from these guys (some less than impressive video on the main gliding forum at >>Brean Down .. Any good..?<< )
Cheers, Geoff

Judging by the places people are coming from, we may have to rename this thread South West SLOPES! rather than slopers.
 I always regarded any where east of Brizzle as being South, our lot at West Blackdown may feel a little neglected here, as our primary site is just on the Devon /Somerset boarders, mind you the opportunities to fly from various sites is favourable as we are more or less in the middle of a circle of slopes all not more than 45 Min's away. Happy flying to you all, would be nice to meet you sometime.

Being new to this hobby, I wouldn't mind heading out to other hills (only really fly at SCSA sites of CLD, Selsley, Froster etc and Crook Peak).
If folks are heading out, it might be an idea to say where you're heading to. I'll bring the tea and cake!!  :study:

Blimey! what a mate you are!! three sugars in mine...don`t cheat on the size of the slice neither, might even carry your models to the slope for you as well!! ;D

Hope you are enjoying your new found life style ( slope soaring aint a hobby really), you`ve just joined a huge family. Hope to meet up one day soon, what`s your bird? mines a Amythyst 2m, likes thermals best and will scratch well but will also handle a blow....just! Do have a Great Planes Spirit 100 to finish but saving it for better weather, lots to build as well...must get on with them.

As I said, I'm quiet new to this, but I have been bitten by the PSS way. I have a Canterbury Sailplanes Aermacchi, a Zaggi thing and have just finished a Andy Conway BAe Hawk.


I'm also building a Avro Vulcan. Will think of a sailplane soon.  :af

Lovely finish! well done, I`ve always fancied Andy Conways plans, particuly the Tornado. where are you hoping to fly from? I hope to fly xmas day as my kids will not be with me till boxing day and I`m not a JW, but I don`t want to waste the day if the weathers good.

PS, that was not an invitation for you to abandon your family on xmas day.

It`s not bad...west to south east, nice views towards the edge of Dartmoor and Exmoor,
`Twas a bit nippy and not much height to be gained,  there were a few Elans an Alula (great fun) a Fox EPP my Amythyst and a few `wings` all getting a good airing, how`s the Hawk? have you had much flying?

Is the back of Crooks Peak the Rocks? if so, not keen. Looks like Cam Long Down if you're kicking you heels.

Avatar is me on Pandy last year.  :)

What wing do you have? mine is a Team 5 Blue DHV 1-2, great flyer, previuosly my wings have been Firebird but having tried the new Pheonix I wasn,t convinced, they seem to cut it right back to bare minimum which doen`t give me confidence. What`s the flying like at Pandy? alyough I have been flying since 2003 I`ve not had much time to travel to other sites yet.

chaz@2b

Ps, landing site at the back of crooks peak is not bad, some gorse about but lots of open areas as well as a few rocks.

I fly at Ozone Buzz Z with a Gin Airlight harness. I did my CP in 1998 and flew a Firebird Barracuda for a while. That said, I don't get out that much. I generally have a week away somewhere in sping and then whenever in the UK. My big thing is full scale sailplanes. I have an ASW 19 based at Nympsfield which seems to take up most of my time.

Pandy is lovely, one of my fav sites, that and Rhossili.

In both those movies, I'm in the back doing the filming and some of the fliying. All the exterior shots are done with my hand poked out of the DV panel which makes the flying a little more tricky.

This is all you get hands free.

Never mind, we now have a whole new year to play with,   :uk:

Any of you boys up for a bit of PSS action in April on the Bwlch?  :af

Yes, definitely, does depend on LEG at the mo.  They are currently doing a prototype EPP model of the P-38 Lightning which looks to be very nice, but I still really would like to make one of these-

F-82 Twin Mustang - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

When I get my act together I'll e-mail Jack as to the cost of two fuz' and whether he would cut me a centre section, just deciding which size to go for as the larger version he does would almost be 100" :af

Will knock something up PSS soon anyway.
John.

Hmm .... light N - N.Wlys forecast : what to fly? where to go? C.L.D.? Crooks Peak? ... In the end I chose Sand Point with my Sonata, plus a little Swinger action ('till a heavy reconnect broke the elevator snake  :'( )

An excellent choice though  :af - met Ben (?) with an Alula & maidening a Windrider Bee : great stuff. And Gary(?) with his paraGlider.
