Finally the right day with the right weather and right wind happened today. Here is the first time slope soaring the Radian. I have done it twice with the RP before. What a blast! You can see at the end it slips down behind a ridge upwind of my location. That wasn't where I planned on landing, so I hit the throttle stick to try and bring it back up. Nothing happened and then I realized my throttle-cut switch was on. I flipped the switch probably just as it was hitting the ground out of sight and ended up breaking the prop.
After a year of flying the Radian and RP, this is the first time I have broken a prop and the first time I have ever hit the ground with it turning. Hmmm...maybe there is a connection. Anyway, I figured it was a good day and had a couple of videos on the card and started hiking down the mountain. When I got about 2/3 of the way down it occurred to me..."Wait a minute, what do I need a prop for?!?!" I could have been still up there having fun in the wind. I never used the prop except to get out of trouble and all that got me was trouble. Oh well, tomorrow's another day.
