I woke up at 6am to clear skies and no wind so I pulled on the silks and headed out to Shell Creek. It wasn’t planned, I didn’t do any of the normal things I usually do the night before a flight so I wasn’t too surprised when I discovered that the battery was dead. Last flight at Placida I’d had to jump it and apparently wasn’t in the air long enough to give the battery a good charge. So… I laid out so that the trike was at the corner of the field and parking area. I put the wood block in front of the tire and gave it a jump. The wing caught on something (probably the truck antenna or parking stump) and I was able to recover it from a tip touch and make a nice take off. bad technique….during set up.
Rest of the flight was smooth ….. Cool…..drama free.
