hanglider flying weekend

Saturday was a really good day for flying. I had 3 good sled flights doing my first turns in my hanglider. Then I got out my paraglider and had a real nice 30 min. soaring flight. Later that day I got out my electric gentle lady and put 20 minutes on it as well. It was a really good day for flying.

3-07-09 melba

Melba was working again this last saturday. I have a total of 6 flights. I got 800 over launch. The thermals were a little punchy and not real well formed. Rob had a real nice thermal flight as well. Good job bro! The weather man had it all wrong this weekend. I haven’t had them mess up that bad in a long time. The glass off was also really nice. The wind came up and smoothed out.

weekend flying

Saturday was a melba day. It was really strong. It was sustained wind around 40 mph. Gusting to 60mph. I didn’t even take the hanglider or paraglider. I took a fellow RC pilot out to show him the whole idea of slopeing. I launched my p-40 and watched as it was unresponsive and did a large left hand turn right into the hill then tumble like a rage doll and completely come apart. Scratch one plane for the day. My wing was the next to go flying. I launched it and it went backwards and hit the ground. So I went back to the vehicle and proceeded to tape anything I could find that had any weight to it. I ended up with a 3inch diameter piece of lead, 4 AAbatteries and 50 cents worth of pennies. I was able to fly it then. But it was barelly penetrating. I got a couple of good flight s in before we decided to bag it and go home. I’m glad I didn’t get my 2meter plane out. Over all it was a good day of flying. I hope Jeff didn’t get scared away from the slope it usually isn’t that extreme.
