First time at Chagford (Dartmoor) but not my last, I can see when the wind is a little lighter it's going to be a lot of fun.

I've just had a comment under the video on You Tube which is good advice, that is move down the slope a little bit, then launch. Thought I would share that information laugh

I think that you should also consider adding ballast in those conditions and get a little more penetration in those strong winds. Weight always helps.

Myself and a friend did the same sort of thing off Perran sands with a couple of SAS Wildthings. We only stopped as it was gusting to 45mph.....not that those couldn’t fly, they could but we couldn’t throw them off fast enough! sarcastic 2
