Phil - I like the raw video of DS acro. I have been enjoying the NYX I got from you very much.

Thomas - I had no idea there was video of the last trip. I love it! I can't wait to head over and meet you guys in the morning BTW my plane is a Superior. Timing equipment is ready to go.

So you guys know SDR has the best and smoothest lift I can imagine. The slope is perfect with tall grass and no rocks. I think I may be buried there.

Sorry bout being OT,
Lee

Those darn German's are so advanced compared to us. Well heck, I guess we've only been here for 200 years and are still learning the basics.

Brilliant flying.

Great thread Phil.
Thanks Rainer. My fave is the Freestyler video; masterful flying with a very well set-up glider.
Equally skilled camera work too.

Energic

Thanks DrFragnasty, I love the video's these guys are posting. Raising the bar all the time in my mind. It is just fun to watch and imagine doing it! Someday maybe it reaches the sticks!

Here's another one F3DS with the Energic. 8-12 MPH winds on the front side, but who needs that eh!

I love this little plane.
