Gentlemen...is that time of the year to monitor and welcome the wind...
Instead of guessing the wind this year I hope we can consolidate all our effort to monitor the wind.
I propose everybody who lives near or at bedok reservoir to send in wind report as much as possible aspecially on friday prior to the weekend.
I will send in the statistic of the wind from Met report. For all who are leaving in the east and can see the planes taking off from Changi airport, the wind is good for gliding if the planes take off on r/w 02 (northerly direction)
And to all those who makes it to reservoir on weekdays pls feed back. Have to save time effort and fuel money. The Best is to get somebody who actually lives at bedok reservoir to monitor the wind real time.
Direction: eg. meeting the slope at 30 degrees left
Strength: eg. approx 20 knots or good enough only for powered glider or blowing caps and hats off
Consistency: eg. flying condition 30% of the time or flying condition 10% of the time or Limited only by Transmitterr Batt!!
