Thermal in the swiss Alps
Hi everybody!

I am new here and very happy to share you some views from my RC models here in Switzerland. So I hope you can enjoy my first video, taking some thermals around in my living region in Switzerland

Vol de pente en Gruyère (6 min 5 sec)

See you in the air!

Very nice video. Thanks for sharing. Looks like a beautiful place to live. What plane are you flying?

Very nice!
I'd be interested in knowing about your onboard camera and its setup.

Thx for your comments!

@ewers: I don't know the brand of the glider as I bought it second hand and tuned it a bit. But it's a v-tail glider of 1800mm wingspan. Wings are madeof balsa structures and fuselage is of glass fiber. I can post more picture of it if you want.

@WhyNot: you can find the 808 Keychain camera by http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...mory_card.html It was just set with rubber band on top of the wings. but I would like to improve the lense quality...

@stevenmurrel: some promotion for my region http://www.la-gruyere.ch/en/navpage....ory=CharmeyFR&
