Stanislaus has posted some superb pictures up on his website.http://www.harmony-fly.de/ldebc2007/
Look and enjoy.
Also I haven't yet commented on the Euro LD event. A couple of scary moments.
One was where a LD boomerang veered way off to the left, heading directly for the Marquee, where several spectators were stting on chairs watching over 100m away. Very luckily the boomerang actually hit the marquee roof, and safely stopped.
I discovered adrenalin was brown.
Also one of the spotters managed to get a direct hit from an outgoing LD rang. Again, luckily no injury, just goes to show how critical it is to pay attention. I really worry about people who spot and don't focus on 70mph blades flying around them.
One of Manus throws went out straight, and directly collided with a metal lamp post. What are the chances of that?
Small damage to the wing. Another of Manus after orbting Sputnik, fell to earth and embedded itself so deeply in the field, I could barely get it out again.
Well done to Joe, I saw this throw from the line, it was really nice, and to Jens as well.
I need to sort me out a new LD rang. My past few competition throws have resulted in 2*125m, and 2* 126m. Pretty consistant eh? I believe I have reached the limit of this one. Uwe if you read this, please email me!
Little checklist of LD competition stuff.....Whistle
- one short blow to annouce launch
A long sound to signify round over.
Decent clipboard and pencil
Paper, preferably with a handy set of columns - which is on this site I believe.
Uwe had a really good 40m line, and safety nets at each end.
