Mark – I definitely could be wrong about the other pictures. It was unknown which bin/shelf that the wing was on, so I opened and took pictures of a few that were possible candidates (unmarked/unpaid, suspicion of last known location, etc). I know less than nothing about hang gliders, so if someone knowledgeable could assist in figuring out which one is his, it would be a huge help.
Should I remove the other pictures above? If you’re fairly sure they are wrong, I can pull them off to reduce confusion.April 5, 2021 at 9:23 AM in reply to: HG Virtual Auction – Proceeds Donated to the Club! #11850
Jack – I got an “I think so” about it being a 150. He said he was flying it with a body weight of 165 lbs, but that a look at the placard would be a good idea. I believe someone volunteered to set it up and inspect it.
Also looks like the ground summoned forth whatever he had been consuming:
Can confirm the wind trickling over the back most of the day. I pushed back close to the Crestline ridge several times throughout the day and each time the closer I got, the more “off” the air felt. Very buoyant everywhere else and very smooth – the fishbowl was one giant thermal today. I made a weak attempt to follow Jérôme but when I wasn’t seeing lift at Arrowhead, I chickened out and headed back. Was above 6k most of the afternoon and had great climbs out in front. Topped out at 8500’ and flew for 4 hours – my best day of flying yet.
Also – I took this yesterday (looks like the Windy app appropriately called the convergence for today):
New graphs are now live. I appreciate the feedback that I’ve gotten from some of you. Hopefully these are a step forward (I think so). Also – nothing is set in stone, so feel free to post any additional comments/requests here if you think something could be better.
Cool! You got my good side too.
Thanks for your efforts on those, Alan.
Clinic was recorded here, for those that wanted to watch but couldn’t make it.
Yep – 4PM our time (7PM Eastern).
The comparisons are great, Alan! Hope it’s not too much effort to keep ‘em coming – would be great to see if any trends emerge.
Way to go, Nacho!
Made some adjustments, by request – no more fill on the wind speed/direction, darker gust line, etc.
I’m a fan of the new model, old format (just my noob opinion).
I like that the new format shows more information, but kinda like the “lower fidelity” of the old – makes it super easy to see the differences as there are fewer colors to mentally process.
Copy that – will try out a few more adjustments early next week.
