Winter flying - 2020
« on: December 06, 2020, 05:43:07 PM »
I wasn't planning on flying today, but David coaxed me out. It was very cold and very windy, but the sky was blue and visibility was excellent!

Dave and I flew, and Felix and Andy showed up. Felix fitted floats on his Dynam Cessna 310 twin, and it flew beautifully!

We flew for a couple hours, and it was fun; lots of touch-n-goes on the snow.

More photos from Andy.

Flying yesterday (and today) was invigorating!

The cold, the wind, the snow and the blue sky was just so much fun!

Here's some video I took of Glen's CL215 from my quad.  This was only my 4th flight with an FPV quad in Acro mode, so it's not smooth.  But I don't think it's too bad.....

Fantastic, Simon... so steady... nice job of staying with him.  That CL415 looks great.

Yes, it’s a 4” toothpick style quad with a Caddx Vista. Very easy to fly.
