The site is best flown in a South or South,South east wind direction.. Due to the shallow slope a steady wind is best to fly the site and around 10-15 mph is we what we find works best. REMEMBER YOUR THE PILOT IN COMMAND There are trees to the left right and behind turbulence is to be expected if the wind is off. BE CAREFUL
