Flogging the Topsky

The morning broke with sunshine and I thought I could get some practice in. 30 minutes later is was snowing At 2:30 PM it cleared up and I headed out and got this video of my practice session at our field. I was already tired as I just finished many quick turnarounds attempts. Once I was waiting for the plane and started running and I caught the wing tip and was fumbling with my fingers trying to get them in position and for some reason I could not, I kept running and running and then after 20 yards I just stopped and laughed..

Nice video

I just finished my topsky today. Too gusty to fly though. Nice flying also. Check out some of my videos of my topsky and powered sailplane at jasonfriedman1's channel on youtube

This vid was shot from my I-phone and I'm getting good at movie maker. I'm getting 140's with consistancy and a few 150's and one at the WRAF asphalt runway at 169' with a 5 mph wind.

Still air launching and re-launching is fun. I think your launch style is similar to mine with that little hop to turn around. Nice vid, BTW.
