New gadget at home

That weekend we've released a trolley called "No more pain in Sergi's back Machine". From now it will be easier to save our winches in wardrobe and my back will thank.


Ice Age in Pla de Vent

Brrrrr...!!!!!! Very very cold that Sunday in Pla de Vent field, and wind make you feel frozen... Only four braves in the field: Javier, my dad, Dani and me. We have had to rest and have lunch in the House Club. But so many sacrifice have had his reward: a new personal launch of 319 meters of altitude :-)

Two in a row

My dad and me in a nice flight

Last weekend I went to fly Saturday and Sunday :-) We are working hard that Winter to improve our performs in Eurotour. Everything was ok except a bad landing of my father and a little accident with a broken line and my right hand. I spend all weekend training distance task and optimizing my launches. I've realized I lost a lot of altitude in first laps and I fly better in final laps, so I have to improve my perform in first 4 laps :-P Next weekend more flights and I don't discard to make a F3B weekend very soon :-O

New Zealand F3B Nats 2011

Joe Wurts is the champion of New Zealand F3B Nats 2011. Results in page eight.

Training distance task

We we're very quiet yesterday. We just could met in Pla de Vent field my father, Javier and me :-( Dani had to work, Alberto was sick and Sergi Subies was bussy in Barcelona. Fantastic weather, very sunny and good wind for launches. Megaline 1.22 still worked fantastic and I spend all day long making distance flights. Javier is very happy with his Vampire, it looks very nice an performes very well in launches. My father finally got good settings for launches with his Crossfire and brought his new toys for 2011 to make some photos: FX-30 and Extasys by Jiri Tuma.

Seniors in Action

I've planned to train next weekends to set up Altus for distance, yesterday I flew with 400 grams of ballast getting 270-280 meters launches. To be more competitive I have to ballast Altus whit more lead but anyway I think 400 grams is a good beginning.

15 weekends before Kirchheim removes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good feelings for 2011

We are very motivated for 2011 Season, so Dani, Sergi Subies and me met to Pla de Vent field to make first flights of the year. We are very motivated and very excited for that Season. We want to perform in more contests in 2011 than last year and train very hard that Winter. First step will be improve our launches and today I got my personal one: 310 meters... :-) Next weekend more flights.
