Tungubakkar - 17.August 2014
« on: August 20, 2014, 15:51:32 PM »
Had a large scale fly-in last weekend and did some aerotowing. Conditions were very good this time and the flight this clip is from was about 17 minutes before I decided to come down, could have stayed up for ages!    :D

Only trouble with my 33% DG-800 are the narrow wings, they tend to disappear, really must get some dark colour on the underside! I lost sight of it for a few moments around 3:08, hence the wing dance.

Don’t think your pilot was very impressed with your wing dancing Sverrir, he tried to jump out a couple of time after that! :D

(May be he decided to stay put when he remembered he didn’t have a parachute. :lol: )

Nice little video and what lovely weather for it.

LK.
Try not to run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas....... all at the same time.

I'm surprised he lasted so long Keith!   :wink:

The conditions were fantastic that day!

Oh my God! No jacket?  :P  :P

Nice flying, and looks like the pilot had fun in the cockpit waving away  :D
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!
