That shot was not in a "headwind" by any definition.
Oh my fault, I forgot you were there.

It was an awesome shot. "Park job."

I'll leave it at that.

wind speed descriptions... http://pad39a.com/gene/wind.html

as this link shows, if there were 10-15mph winds small limbs and the pine needles would of been moving visibly in the video. maybe there was a gentle breeze but i would hardly describe that as a headwind.

It may have been windy during the day, but there is very little evidence that it was windy during that shot. Nothing appears to be moving and there is very little audible wind noise on the camera mic.

Looks like a solid 30mph heady to me.

I took the d1 & d4 out for a while today. 15 to 20 mile an hour wind gusts and 4 to 5 inches of snow. I couldn't tell what I should expect out of either of these discs based on todays rounds. The d1 is stable for sure, but will turn in a headwind. The d4 I couldn't air my shots out enough for. More later.

Cameron is legit, devastation occurs.

I'd expect his next clip to be 400' shots with Prodigy's "roc" and "buzzz" instead of bunting a D1. I'll try them in this plastic, the buzzz like one at least.

Anyone tried out the runs that have started hitting stored marked "first run" rather than "proto?". Any difference in flight, stamp quality etc?

From what I can tell from google maps, course info from this site, weather reports, and media data from the video.....Netflix is not working right now guys give me a break. The wind was coming from about 9:30 and was 8mph. Even without any of that stuff there's hardly any microphone cuts.

Now that that is out of the way, it's ok man we all inflate he truth a little. I want to see these guys throwing these discs 600'+ parking a 400' with a little wind does not show up the potential of these discs.
