I had a really interesting flight yesterday afternoon. It was dark and overcast but I decided to fly the Specter so I could give an inexperienced friend some stick time. I discovered that there was slope lift coming out of a gully and deflected by a line of trees so, essentially, I did my first dynamic soaring. Once I found the sweet spot I was able to stay up indefinitely by just flying an egg-shaped pattern with the narrow end in the lift. Very, very, fun!
