Good day of flying

I thermalled out of picklebutte today. I got to 6800ft and went 6.25 miles. I had 2 other thermal climb outs along the way. Not to bad for a hot no wind day at pickle. Thanks for the retrieve mark. I own you one.

new glider / paraglider kiting

Friday night I took my new RC canard glider out for its maiden flight. This is one of my own designs. It flies pretty good. It is definetly different then my other gliders. I had a 30 minute soaring flight. Saturday night me and Blaine went out to the sod farm to give Blaine his first episode of paragliders. He caught on pretty fast…..

best glassoff this year so far

Rob and I made the trek out to pickle butte today for the glassoff. The day was looking good for some thermal flying but Not being able to fly in the afternoon just sucks sometimes. We did get a real nice glassoff. I got 1 hr and 40min worth of airtime. Rob had around 1hr and 20 minutes. It was one of those days were you can just go anywhere and do anything. We got to see a real nice sunset. It was a real good day.

lake lowell

Today was a very strong day at pickle. Blaine, and John both jumped off the hill with there hangies. Blaine had a 1hr flight while John had about a 10 minute ride. The thermals were a little funky today so it made staying up hard. The sink was very strong. I didn’t even get my hangy out of the bag. I did get a early flight with my paraglider. It was a little rough but not bad. It was getting strong so I decided to land. Later that day me and some of the other paraglider pilots decided to go try to fly the dam at lake lowell north of pickle. It was quiet  strong and gusty to actualy get a good launch. I came close one time but almost bought the farm in doing so…… whoops…….. Then we headed back to pickle to get a late flight. It was still strong but I managed to get off. I had about a 10minute flight. I got out infront and about 250 over when the wind came back up and I just got parked. I decided to land after I was getting blown back at a pretty good rate. I would call it a good day over all.
