New Dynamic Soaring World Record: 446 MPH !!!

Hey, a new DS world record was flown by Spencer Lisenby at 446 mph on Monday, October 25th, in Weldon California. Let's convert that: 717.77 km/h !!! Fantastic flight with your Kinetic 100DP, congratulations from Switzerland, Spencer! And this with "only" 60 mph wind speed (96.56 km/h).

On the same day, Spencer also maidened his new Kinetic 130 to 403 mph (648.57 km/h) with less wind.
There's a full video footage of the record flight. Unfortunately, the glider is so fast one can barely see it! But the incredible sound is there.
Radio controlled gliders are the fastest unmotorized flying machines on earth, and if our US friends continue like that, it will stay so for a loooooooooooooong time!
