The current record is around 160km made still during the winter. The region offers excellent conditions for long XC as it is mainly dry and its topography consists of lines of 100-300m hills in a plateau. There are many farms, well connected by dirty roads and tarmac roads.
40x40m take-off which has just been levelled and planted grass seed. There are building plans awaiting the approval of the environmental authorities to open a west and southeast take-off. Plenty of Landing fields as the hill are in the middle of a flat terrain. Be aware of the redneck farmer whose property is below the hill behind of the take off. He can spoil your day. Nevertheless this is an exception. Most people are extremely welcoming and friendly. But if you climbed out and got away you will definitively fly past his property. So careful with thermal gusts and don't allow to be blown backwards into to the rotor and landing there. Less than 1km from BR122. Fly As Far As You Can!!! Fly As Far As You Can!!!
Yesterday was sunny. Today is Sunny, tomorrow also will be sunny, provided it is not between December-February :D
