This was a last minute thing. There is a cold front moving through and its been overcast and dreary all day. About 3:00 it started to lift and by 5:00 I was off to the races. Happily there wasn’t anything going on at the airpark. I was afraid that the sky divers would be out in force but nope…. just me and a couple of Sand Hill Cranes.
Launch was clean. I played around the patch … took a few photos … and enjoyed a nice cool flight.
No Drama. Oh yea, I was playing with using the tip steering and the brakes together. It didn’t feel natural but I think if I change the length of the Stabilio line it might work. On landing I let go of the tip steering at the beginning of the flare because i would have pulled a lot of tip before ever activating the brake.
