Here are pictures of John’s Explorer. That’s a lot of sailplane. Flies wonderfully. Launch picture captured a “lucky break” just ahead of the chute before tension got too high.
I went out with my DLG for a while.

Hey WMSS, I really enjoyed today, great fun. Today’s contest task was 3 rounds of 5 minutes with a 25 point in-or-out 25 foot landing. The winners are Francois 4th (449 points), Jim McConnell 3rd (515 points, although his last flight was 10 minutes long. Still a max in my book. Jim Martin 2nd (552 points), and Tim 1st with an 805. I’ll take last place for never finding my own lift and just piggy backing off of everyone else, ha!
Here’s a video
of a beautiful day…
