Lost Hills Update

Weather – the Weather station closest to the field in Paramount Farming on Wunderground

The Orchard and Bees
The trees  have now grown to maturity so are too tall to retrieve a model at tree top without getting the loan of a pole from the organizer.  Do not damage the trees , borrow a pole. Do not ride your bike or motor bike or drive your car or golf car between the trees.  We now have more experience in working with the orchards so will probably fly more from the most Northern Flight Line, this will minimize flying into the trees.

Bees are needed to pollinate the trees. This year the pollination period for Almond Trees is expected to be just after we finish flying. The Lost Hills association  works with the bee keeper to minimize the impact of bees on our events.   But there always can be bees at Lost Hills.  Remember that dark clothes are less attractive to bees  and if you have issues with bee sting always take the appropriate medication.

B stuff FOR SALE
Carbon F1B wings for sale. I have two sets of the new 190 cm carbon wings designed by Tony Matthews and manufactured by Stepan Stephanchuk  for sale.
Paid $400 each will sell for $350 and $300 (cheaper one was crashed but Stepan has repaired them by inserting back in the molds so good as new). They fly great I just need some cash.

April 2016 tan super sport. This is from the exceptional batch that gave lots of very good motors. $400 USD for a full 14lb box (or best offer)
Other Tan Super sport rubber from various batches. This is “normal” tan super sport, broken into segments with the batch date and segment number on the bag. Selling for less than retail at 20/lb (equivalent to $280 per box).
