    • I'd say that the mountains doesn't seem to be completely surrounding the city. Even if they were I'd also say that one can't rule out that a local climate can form. After all, the the "smallest diameter" of the town seem to be about 25km. Say that the sun rises in the morning (common) and one side gets warm, the air gets warm and rises there and gets replaced with air from the sides - a wind blows that could be experienced at ground level?  Here I fly the 4D in Monte Carlo during end of October last year. I didn't want to return here (there are so much to explore in other places nearby), but the rest of the family hadn't seen it. The wind direction (of the low wind) that day was so that it was blocked from the nearby mountains. Yet the air was not completely at rest and I had a quite OK session in the end and this is what I want to show - even though it didn't look good from the start I had a good time in the end! Or as expressed in my (non-published) flight log: I did also have a peek in Wikipedia about Climate in Santiago ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santiago#Climate ). The last line reads: "Prevailing winds are from the southwest, with an average of 15 km/h (9 mph), especially during the summer; the winter is less windy". At least for summers the mean wind speed according to this is ... a gentle breeze! Perhaps making sure you got one kite for lighter winds with you and focusing on finding fields is the way to go.
    • Looks great. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    • I'll take some of that action. 
    • Yep, it sure is. I just looked at it on Google Maps, on the "earth" view, and it is literally in a hole surrounded by mountains. Even if there was wind, it would be coming from different directions every 10 seconds.
