First part of the vid is my 2 meter LilBird, allmost straight up in a 10+mph wind. The guys think it was pushing 400 ft.
The secon part is my oculus in more wind and flying backwards (kite off the turnaround) when the chute wraped the horz stab. I have never had this happen.. but have heard about it. My fault I think I floated the bird at the top. I tried to clear the chute but the wind just turned her around, so I used the rudder as best I could to keep the wings level..No damage ( thanks Merrill) and flew it a minute later.
