392mph slope soaring record
I thought these things were pushing the 200mph limit not the 400mph limit, that is just nuts

The record is cool, Dynamic Soaring is very cool, but it's still not not as hard as 3D with with an R/C helicopter. This is a known fact.

Mind-boggling! They're gonna have to redesign radar guns just to keep up with those guys.

In that Wired Mag article is a link to Bill Patterson's excellent explanation of how DS'ing works, in 14 easy animated steps.

I don't know about that. I'll say that's true at 100-200 mph...
But at 400mph lets look at a couple of things

400 mph = 586 feet per second

That's a football field every half second

Fast as a speeding bullet?
.38 caliber tracer round is just slightly faster at 650 feet per second

oh yea and careful if you blink that takes 300 milliseconds, and means the plane will have moved 175 feet.

GimbalFan,

That's the best Dynamic Soaring explanation I've ever seen. Thanks for posting that.

You're welcome. I've never seen a better one.
You're a lot better off flying DS on the windward side. - AirTardRC on a previous thread
Hey Wolfgang! Tell us again (like you did before) how Dynamic Soaring works better on the upwind side of a ridge! According to your numerous incorrect claims about DS'ing, Bill Patterson couldn't possibly be right!

Didja change your mind?

C'mon -- we're all ears.

Yup - a comical-crazed flagrantly-flawed 'gem', though not nearly rare enough.
