Flight #1138

Beautiful clear morning with just a whisper of breeze from the South East. At the intersection I picked the North West runway and set up. The previous launch I observed that the lines were being held back by the keepers so I stuffed some paper towel into the bottom to prevent any pinching. It worked . The wing was slow to inflate but once it caught it came up straight and clean.

Landing was the worst in a long time. I came in with almost no power , trimmers “all in”. The flare was probably a tad high because I ran out of authority and came down hard. Not enough to stress the rig but certainly not the slow greasy landings of late. Next time, I think the conditions are similar I’ll put the trim to neutral.

Getting more comfortable with the risers every flight.
