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

60 mph gusting to 70 mph was interesting with a PMP Wingbat and a PMP Wanabee at Aggy,

F3f racing on Morgans at Whitesheet in 45 to 50 mph was good fun.

No such thing as too much wind only models that are not strong enough or heavy enough.

Now we are starting to understand why slopers have so many aeroplanes.
