 Wilbur & Orville Results
From: Oliver Cai
This year’s W&O Summer Meet was held June 11-12, 2016. AMA Sanction 1508. Unfortunately, incredibly windy weather on both days cut the contest short and limited the number of participants. Average speeds were around 12-15mph with even higher gusts, making the air quite turbulent. However, those who did manage to squeak in flights put up arduous effort and pulled off some beautiful maxes. In F1A, we have Andrew Barron the only flier to put in all five rounds to win the contest. Despite suspending F1A on the first day, we completed the remaining three rounds the next day. The later half of the day would’ve been far worse for the mini events, with no one wanting to risk their models. Similarly in F1B, Tom Vaccaro was the only to put in all five rounds with a max out and got some spectacular thermals despite the conditions. F1S was a close battle with Dick Ivers taking first with a max out. Thankfully, everyone’s models landed on the field with the reduced maxes.
