That is some "glider"!

I hadn't realised how windy it was - I assume it was windy from the background noise.

How did the wings stay on?

Twas silent when you showed the clip to me on your phone.

I believe Dynamic soaring holds the speed record for the fastest RC airplane at 468 mph. Notice that the fellows timing the plane are sitting behind a wall of rocks!!

That's incredible. I was surprised beyond belief the first time I watched a glider moving so fast. I would have never guessed it could be done. I had it in my favorites already, and am paused waiting for it to buffer so I can watch it fullscreen now without pauses.

Yep, i remember seeing that, i had forgotten how fast it was!

Its kinda like how a ukie will 'spool-up' doing consecutive loops down wind on a windy day. I did this in one of my very first contest, I splattered my plane so hard the Fox skipped across the pavement for 50-75 yards!
