Good day hunting thermals with Mike who  caught/worked some tough thermals today taking his  Yoda insanely far and high downwind....Great flying m8 

Pete turned up as I was finishing and this other flyer turned up with a solar panel to charge batteries! Brill.

Ah Marc, you did some very good thermalling there, outclimbing me on several occasions despite having a glider that is holding you back a bit! I found the lift really hard today, and even when I got a good thermal I wasn't doing so well at centering on it. Longest flight was 17 minutes, and I got insanely high. I think I'm legal at that height, but I'm also slightly afraid to confess just how high it was.

p.s. the main reason I use a bike is because it's cheap and fast. Not owning a car lets me spend a lot more money on my hobbies!

Also, Luke the DLG pilot from Thurs and Olly, an FPV drone pilot today both recognised me from my YouTube channel. Yikes, this notoriety isn't what I wanted exactly.

Mike, what drone would you recommend for doing the things you get up to with yours? A friend and I are tempted to get one with FPV goggles and decent camera. 

I'm with you on the bike thing 👍 I'm a proud owner of a bike and skateboard myself :)

Edit: I started a new thread regarding drone recommendations here:

I'll be there, but probably not with DLG given the overcast. I'm going to fly quad FPV and fixed wing.

Good call Mike. Apologies, I had to leave early. There where loads of pilots with there various planes/drones (and a buggy car :) ) today at Scrubs. Always good to see

The weekend looks promising Mike. I'll be there for 10am, touchwood.

Would you like me to bring M5 throw meter for you to checkout?

Cheers

Marc

I'll be there too, hopefully. No worries on the throw meter, I should hopefully have my own one by then, although I went for the GliderThrow version.

Haven't thought it worth going DLG flying lately, so often it's completely overcast when I have the chance to go flying. Hopefully we'll get some nice sunny days in the near future.
