Hot day on the hill yesterday,wind 40- 55+. John giving it big licks with his fully loaded Oddessey, Roger reversing Gulp in for landings, my Windburner really on step when wind hits 45+, and Franky totalling M60. Rec and battery destroyed ! Merry xmas from the hilltop posse.  ; ;D :co :a >:( :af

They say a change is as good as a rest and it was yesterday. After the last 3 weekends standing on Tittlington in 30-40 mph South Westerlies we ventured to North Yorkshire for a spot of DSing. Light Westerly ( 12-20 ) produced some good quick laps and ideal training for those still getting used to flying on the "wrong side of the hill in no wind". Coats off and no gloves, just like summer !!

Weather forecast a bit wrong for cruis "in" today. Tree bending gusts on the meter of 56mph, and most of the flying been done in 40-45mph ! Great for the D60's but loads of reverse in landings for most other things ! Still sunshine and no rain ,so good day had by all .( I think ). :af

All on my lonesome today at Titters, wind was square on and touching 30kts at times, took my new 4.5meter Topmodel Ventus 2cx for it's maiden and all went very well. Caught a couple of good toupee lifting thermals which took the Ventus way up. Nice plane.
Regards
Simon.

Has everyone emigrated from Northumberland to sunnier climes !! Out on Saturday 11 till 2 at East/ West hill ,14 to 18mph on the front and easy DS cruising on the back, just quick enough to keep your bum cheeks clenched !! No one around. Sunday Titters ,14 to 20mph ,12 till 4 then left John boy to play by himself as my batterys  had had enough..When I drove away I could still hear a Destiny screaming round the sky!! Sun tan now topped up till about Thursday when next S/W is due. :co

Has everyone emigrated from Northumberland to sunnier climes !

Guilty as charged!  But then I left about 35 years ago,  however my return visits have been very infrequent recently...  All the best to everyone still up there - I may get back for a brief visit sometime.

At last some proper wind! The 3 musketeers ventured up Titlington with heavy weight kit for some proper f/side flying.D60 and Windburners loved it with wind around 35-45 with highest gust of 51 on meter. Mike H had really good day with his  Apache( retro aerobat from the 1980's) once he filled the fuselage with stones off the hillside for ballast !! Should be same again tomorrow but not quite as windy. See you there. :af

The hill top posse took a chance on the wind forecast being wrong( 30-40 with gusts to 60) and we played a blinder.We got our Christmas fix in 18-25mph all day!! No rain no sun in your eyes and 9 degrees on the wind meter, just 3 M60s, a D40, d60 ,AND Windburner in the sky till 4 o clock.! Merry Xmas .

Just back from smashing week in Craster. Cottage by the sea. Morning cup of tea in bed watching dolphins !
Flew libelle from Honey Cove, shame about the big bush on the slope, and Tidewater in sea outside cottage. Tidewater may have made it into an episode of Vera but I expect it will be cut.

Thanks again Pat and Chris for your help in 2007.

Another fun week in Craster. Flew at Corbys Crags on the way there, what a great site, and Honey Cove. Thanks again Pat and Chris for the info. Haven't met any other fliers there yet.
