Short Flight. The wind was blowing just over my comfort zone so I put Beau on 50 feet of line and set up the wind sock. My phone rang and I spent the next 45 minutes talking while the wind and sun came down. By the time I hung up, the sun was almost touching the horizon, there was just a hint of wind blowing from the West which fortunately, was right down the runway. There was no time for the GoPro, iTunes, Earbuds, FlySkyHi or anything else that I liked to play with prior to flying.
I grabbed the ear-cups, strapped in and launched. I flew west toward the sun and tried to climb fast enough to keep the sun above the horizon. Its possible, but not at 14 mph ascending at 250 ft/min. I did however,slow it down a bit.
The landing was sweet.
