Well the wind finally started blowing in the right direction for flying here in Fresno,CA! Well kinda. But it was at 20 mph,which is a bit more than we normally get! But I tried anyway and I've never flown slope before!

First attempt led to the poor little glider about 200 feet behind me! Then I decided to put some reflex in the wing by flattening out the ailerons a bit and tape 5 quarters and 4 nickles to the bottom. All the "weight" that I had. So now it should be pretty close to 8 ounces.

This helped and was able to get a little flight time in , until it got blown over and hit the ground which popped the wing off! But she hit the ground several times without ant damage and 5 minutes to make her new again ain't bad!

I'm hooked! gotta build something more gooder, maybe a Carbon Sally?

Anyway here are a few pictures, poor old camera did her best so please excuse the poor quality!
