2 day F5J competition in Visalia California. Saturday was ideal with moderate temps and calm winds. Sunday temps dropped when the wind came. High winds in fly offs made things interesting for sure! The CVRC field is one of the best glider fields in the USA and the guys there always put on a great event!

Some short video form a 4 day event at Sandy Valley, a small town about 40 minutes out of Las Vegas. The location was a beautiful sod farm. First 2 days were F3J and the second 2 days were F5J. Conditions for 3J were ideal however the wind really came up for 5J. Collision on 3J launch at 1:45 if you want to skip ahead.
