Looks as if you have it pretty well dialed in at this point.

I've become a side show. I hope that I'm still hiking when I'm 83.

The winter winds are coming up so this light little plane will be hung from the rafters soon, but still flyable today. Maybe 10mph winds. With the NE wind direction, it was barely soarable so had to bungee up to have any fun. Flying is better with clouds for background.

Tried a new highstart type tow hook today. Will cut it off tonight.

Kent,
Looks like you have a very nice handling lightweight little bird.

It was a nice day for the middle of December.

Had to work for it today but had many thermal flights such as this. The birds were absent from the landscape for the first hour, until I showed them that there WAS lift out there. Seeing my chunky little plane work the lift rattled a few of them off of their perches.

You'll need 1080p to see most of this.

Light air sloping

So here's the first video with the Sony Action Cam. Amazingly, there is an even wider lens angle ( 170 degree ) available. The glider quickly turns into a dot with the 120 degree wide angle. Luckily I burned up most of the memory before I broke off the winglet.....things got ugly with the ever growing green tape patch.

Also featured is Eric's Wisel at about 6 oz/s.f. and the PVC Sloper

Nice footage. Looks like your plane has a pretty crisp roll as well.
