Flight #543 Snowflake

Mike Bennett and I launched shortly after sunrise.  The thermal inversion was dramatic, at 100 feet or so the temp went up 10 degrees and the air turned to silk.  Mike had lent me a pair of his goggles which I was able to wear under the helmet and I was finally able to get a good seal on my earcups.  Gotta get me some!
Flew to Aurora Res and buzzed the marina.
Launch and landing was into 8 mph breeze.  The weld on the cage has broken at the previous repair.  I will fix it with duck tape and zip ties until I can arrange to get it welded.
