Evening all I am new to the group I am Just wondering if anyone here has managed to find any suitable Dynamic Soaring sites.. I have found a few down around west cork and kerry.. But I am still looking for the perfect site.. Here is one I found north of Dunmanway on top of Shelly More..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxizpUwISBA&t=225s

Sorry can't help with DS sites in Cork/Kerry, I'm at the opposite end of the island in Northern Ireland. Welcome to the forum

Welcome to the forum! And Happy New Year :)

We tried DSing a good 10 years ago with Joe. We picked Mt Leinster, West slope at 9 Stones as the backdrop on the East side is pretty good for this exercise.

I believe somewhere on the forum, there is a picture of my Destiny driven like a fence post in the ground following one of our sessions :) Still bears the marks to this day as the soft ground pretty much saved it from total destruction :)

Fun times! :)
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!
