Re: Who is flying what & where this week? 2011-7/10-7/16

Flew at Meinecke Park in Schaumburg just an hour ago, really lame wind, 0 gusting to 1, new build flew bueatifully. Sail still flutters even though it's stretched quite tight. Any suggestions anyone?

Hi guys. Flew Sunday at Busse Woods, blk/red 1.5 sle 3-wrap and some home-mades; Monday, same place, same, same. Tried flying Tuesday morning at Turner Park in Roselle. Wind was lame and I decided I need an ultralight/indoor rev for those x*##@&% days, so I went home and built one. Took almost s...

Flew every day this week, mostly at Busse Woods and Turner Park in Roselle. I'm liking the dependable winds at Busse more and more. Joined in the fun at Greene Valley (why do they call a 190 foot pile of garbage a "valley"?), tight area, good wind. Used to fly RC gliders, might give slope ...
