    Cool shot from up high, Jono That was friggin wild day for sure. Looking back at those videos shows quite clearly it was as rough as guts and perhaps even rougher... In my mind my AFP70 seemed more stable than it actually was - it was all over the place. Glad i pushed the Bat record up a bit too as 164 (prev record) i felt was always a bit too slow. That PMS of yours was looking hooked up! Much, much smoother than my AFP. There was at least 270-280 in there today if you didnt loose the elevator. Shame there was no video.

    Good to meet you finally, Ian. Sorry i couldnt stick around any longer - hope you had a good session!

    It might have to be. I'm bagging a pms 2 in the mould but have Leak I can't track down. Been trying to find it for 2 hours now... Pump running hot and only at 15 inches vac... I won't be there till at least 230 at this rate.
  12. Wellington (part deux)

    I'll be heading out there about 1 or so. So I'll be there about 130 give or take. Tell Simon too, Nick.

    Looks like Sunday afternoon the wind will be good for Titahi bay. Not super strong but should be ample. Who's keen?
  14. Wellington (part deux)

    It looks like Sunday afternoon could be NW at Titahi Bay. So lets keep an eye on that over the next day or so. Sunday and Tuesday are the days i can fly. Sat is out for me.
