It might seem like Baudis have a really quick service, but it is not so. I ordered this one in August. It was sent from Baudis on the same day that I had my unfortunate incident with the deep blue sea.

Nonetheless, I think Baudis' wait times are not unreasonable (especially for an individual paint job). What is more, they are very good at predicting when a model will be ready, so if they say three months, three months (give or take a day or two) it will be.

Sorry about the poor quality I didn't check the camera settings before handing it over but I think you will get an idea of what it was like today.

Real nice - big, coastal air, doesn't get much better than that.......only downside is removing the salt from your gimbals!

Cheers,

Greg

It was nice conditions, but a shame when conditions got stronger and landing became more difficult. At 15-16ms it was ok but once it started to get around the 20ms it was a bit more interesting, with a massive shear layer that just carried the glider.

When it comes to mount positions, one that I think gives an interesting angle is...........

 

That got my eyebrows raised  :huh:

 

Sat in the house watching flying videos. Not sad much .......

We live in a beautiful country! One of the really enjoyable parts of slope flying is getting out to some stunning countryside.

Indeed, beautiful countryside you guys have in UK.

Writing to you from Southern Spain, very beautiful here too, but we lack the grass landing runways you have over there, so limiting our choice for slopes.

If any of you come over on holidays, bring your glider.

NIce video Mark,  I do enjoy the beach airshows.  I was surprised whilst doing a bit of gardening last month to see the Vulcan doing circuits & passing twice over my house!! It was on its way to Fairford
