Video of a short go-pro flight yesterday morning at Harting.

Gives some nice views of the hill and surrounding countryside.

Had to use the motor a bit to keep the little model going forward!  It really battles with the wait of the gopro, and the big 'air brake' up top!!

I did a second flight taking still photos, but it appears that I forgot to start the camera taking pictures!!!

That mount doesn't look too secure Rob. Model nose seems to be moving around far more than the image

Lol... I think that is the magic Google image stabilising option I checked!

A friend and I will maiden our new Phoenix 2000 gliders on Saturday.

We are both bloody beginners. So we don't really know what we are doing. :)

Would e great if we would meet some of you more experienced flyers there for tips.

 

According to http://www.windfinder.com/forecast/harting_down the wind will be N to NE with around 10 knots.

 

Is that good (enough) conditions?

Where should we go? I suppose the Butser north slope is where the action will be?

Last time I was at Harting Down, that was great. But according to M.V.S.A.'s website it does not seem to like shifts to east a bit. So that is out I guess?

Hey Tilman

Harting should be okay if it is north or north west.

North East... May work but I doubt it.

Probably best to try Butser.

Not sure I can make it tomorrow :-(
