Nice straightforward, no drama. Perfect conditions except for a little bumpy down low, on landing.
Month: July 2022
Launch was sloppy due to the port side A’assist not being attached. I fought the wing into the air and after a couple of deflations was able to stabilize it overhead for a brake assisted rotation. That, and a light fuel load made for a short sweet flight.
I flew to Safe Cove and back experimenting with the WTS. I’m confident that I’ll be able to reroute them without having to lay out the wing. I have not inspected the prop repair but it didn’t explode in flight.
Work on the WTS routing continues. Lost glasses into prop… it was bound to happen eventually but I didn’t expect them to take a chunk of the prop.
Aborted first launch when inflation went bad. Suspect more power at start would have helped. Clear air and sky. Light winds. No GoPro. used the trimmers at full out as well as full in.
To Do’s ……..Reroute WST on right side. Inflate tires…. Consider
rotating glass wheel struts. Consider mounting Robert’s throttle.
4th of July weekend. Beautiful morning. Surface winds were E 3mph at dawn and built to 10 mph at 7:45. It was bumpy between 400 and 500 ft. Winds were 13 above 1000
First flight in a long time. I went out the morning before and decided not to fly because it looked like a very difficult cross wind launch. Glad I did because this morning the conditions were perfect. Nothing dramatic, it was a simple easy flight.
