Bad stuff first. The pain has moved from by sternum area to my back between the shoulder blades. Moving the hangpoints forward wasn’t the cure. I spoke with Chad and he suggested that I lower the brake lines or attach another set of handles and see how having my hands lower felt. I hope it works.
The air was twitchy from the South South West. I set up into the wind and planned to turn onto the runway after inflation. The wing turned nicely and I taxied for a bit before committing to launch. It was a nice morning and I practiced the yank and bank till it hurt which was ALL TOO SOON.
Landing… I stayed on the power and touched down lightly it was was surprising when the machine lifted as I added some brake to bring the wing down. I guess I’d forgotton how the Eden likes to bleed off energy and should plan on floating above the surface for a ways. I’m also going to have to practice carting with the wing up and must do a few dead stick landings to get the feel for this wing.
