Spencer Lisenby's Dynamic Soaring world record has just been broken by John Buxton. Flying in the California hills over the last weekend, John pushed the record to 445mph using a 100" span Kinetic glider.

John and Spencer have been steadily breaking records records over the last year and with R/C gas turbine powered models yet to break the 400mph barrier, it seems the gliders are out in front at the moment.

Check out the forum link below to the video and look out for news of this latest record in Andy Ellison's RCM&E slope column soon.
