Happy days guys. I had a couple of great flights today with one of the smaller chuckes.
Not quite a fly away but close. I had a couple of test chucks to get the trim worked out then I could feel a good thermal building.
I threw it and it trasitioned pretty well and started to circle pretty well.
She was not loosing or gaining heigh it just kind of circled there for ages. At one stage she rose a bit and gained some height. I thought she was away but alas the thermal didnt pop off the ground or maybe I was just a bit to early or late.
I was confident that given another few goes i would have poped a thermal but I was at a local park and was amongs a group of happy R/C flyers. Me running around the middle of there field was entertaining for them but I didnt want to make a PITA of myself.
Definantly going to make another few smaller ones as my big DLG job is just too big for the parks I fly.
Thanks for everyones help.
Mick
