Glider name: Radian Pro
Thermal or Slope: Slope
Date and Time of flight:9/12/2012 13.25pm
Duration of flight: 46 mins
Location: Discovery Bay, Hong Kong
Conditions: 20 deg C with high cloud and a 10-15 kt wind, no thermal activity.

OK I have a confession with the above flight. I went up the hill with two mates. One has just been introduced to gliding and had a new unflown ASW, the other is a RC mate who only flies power. Anyway the ASW friend wanted me to fly his glider so I got that in the air and handed the controls to him. I then launched my RP. However, half an hour later he said that he would prefer if I landed his glider. I handed my controls over for 5 mins while I got the ASW on the deck.

Now as far as I can see there is no rule about only having one pilot ...... so does this count? Mitigating circumstances .... I was busy introducing someone to this hobby and I also think my power mate is hooked now too!!
