Flying session on cliff in POLAND - VIDEO
 
Hello,

I'd like to show our last flying session on the small cliff in village called Karwienskie Blota about 80km from Gdansk in Poland.
Village located on the Polish Coast.

Starring :
- Scale plane FOKA ( SZD-24)
- Storm & TOxic (F3F/F3B planes)

I hope You'll love movie from this location :)
We had perpendicular wind around 7 m/s. Heigh of the cliff - up to 8m.

Karwieńskie Błota II (4 min 4 sec)


Best Regards
Peter

Nice. What are the gliders? One looks sort of "Foxy".

That's a Foka 4, might be the ValentaModel one (a bit too big though?): http://www.valentamodel.cz/53a.htm . The V-tail is a Toxic F3f/b. http://www.t9hobbysport.com/static/toxic.asp

Thank you for feedback!

Foka is 4m plane made by owner :)
We have another 4m Foka (eng. Seal) , but after water landing in Baltic Sea, she need to be repair.

Here you'll find more information about real glider. (Sorry, only in Polish)

Nice to hear that You like video.

We have another video (made in march 2012) where after F3F training sesion, Foka was flown on the even smaller slope - 6m height sand dune.
We had wind around 11 m/s . Landing on the beach during early spring is very tricki :)

Yes, great videos Peter, thanks for posting them. It is great to see such large planes flying off of seemingly small slopes! Nice cinematography also, as Matin said!
