(32-38 mph) High wind, moderate gale, near gale

700e A
4 flights
Avg. flight time 00:05:00

Booked a late and extended lunch to take advantage of the reasonable forecast, but the decent conditions never arrived. Very windy and cold.
The VBC gov seems to work OK now. I still get high overspeed on a downwind loop, but it's not as bad as before and the underspeed is minimal compared to the Castle. I'm not 100% sold on it yet, but I'll see what it does in better conditions.
It did seem to have a weird overspeed in rampup after autos, but setting a higher autoration % seemed to fix it.
It could possibly be too big a pinion, as the high speeds seem very high.
The forecast looks completely rubbish for the next week.

I looked at the forecast an hour ago and here it is also nothing but rain and wind ...

It's just those damn Australians having all the good weather pmsl
At least the days are getting longer. Another few weeks and we'll be able to fly after work again :)
