Orlando LZ #981

No Drama.  Mike Lange and I.  One thing of note was that I set up so that the trike was going to roll on a hard surface for the length of the cross street, width, approx 20ft.  The Idea was that I could build up some speed right at the start and complete the rollout on the grass.  What I didn’t expect was that the wing came up as fast as the trike but when I hit the grass my acceration slowed whereas the wing did not.  I looked up and saw the wing was just about to tuck.  I applied brake, hammered the throttle and it was all good.
