#428 Simms

Very short flight.  The trim buckle got hooked in the hang point loops causing the wing to pull to the right.  I made one circle and landed.  On post flight I noticed that the weak weld on the cage had opened up so the was it for today.
On the bright side I tried putting my arms behind the hang straps and found it much better.  I was laid back too much but with some back padding I think I can avoid straining my abs. 

I went to the Doc with huge chest pains which he diagnosed as inflammation of the cartilage connecting my ribs to the sternum.  800mg Ibuprofin helped
