#430 Snowflake

Solo AM Flight…    One of the little quirks with the Falcon 4 stroke is that if you don’t turn off the ignition the battery will drain.   No big deal if you have jumpers and a helper to hold the machine and move the truck.  I had the jumpers.   I wasn’t sure how it would work but putting the spare under the front wheel kept the trike in place nicely while I got the truck moved.
It was blowing 8 to 10 which is about the most I will attempt.  The Eden III came up without pulling the trike back and the take off was clean.  It sure makes a difference to have a smooth surface to launch from.
Flight was shortened because my chest was hurting and the winds were building… 30 minutes was good.
