    right now, the forecast looks pretty dam good for the weekend. Is anyone keen for Ngaio ?? Sunday and labour day look the best. It does not look record breaking but it would be good to get some speed happening for a change !!

    Had some great flying on Sunday with Nick and Simon. Booming lift with plenty of combat. Even Nick's 2 daughters had a fly on the Buddy Box. I don't think insurance is necessary for a bit of slope at Titahi Bay. Jono

    Nice. Its surprising that the recommended CG was too far back. Normally its way to far to the front. Now, if you would just fit some ailerons.....

    Welcome to Wellington !!!! Where are you from ?? For front side slope we normally fly at Titahi Bay. It is a superb site. One of the best in the country with a massive landing area. The site works in a NW through to West. There is an anemometer here that is updated every 1/2 hour http://harvestalarms.com/w.cgi?hsn=3795&grp=Main https://www.google.co.in/maps/place/Titahi+Bay,+Porirua+5022,+New+Zealand/@-41.0932323,174.8443484,602m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x6d3f53aeabf936b1:0x500ef6143a30ee0!8m2!3d-41.1061563!4d174.8386827 I look forward to meeting you

    you prefer the moth anyway so it does not matter if the wing is a wee bit shorter Its hard to get the carbon trailing edge stock. I have often thought of making it. I have some super heavy fiberglass stuff if you want to have a look

    Such a shame about the carnage. Great speed Nick !!!!
