Rodent Over Cape Cod

As requested, here's a really bad litttle video of a Rodent flying in a 10 mph breeze at Cape Cod. Bill is in the hat, I have the hair. Bill flies first. At about 26 seconds I take over. Then you see two planes flying. The Rodent and a little 60", v-tail racer that I'm flying.
This is not the Rodent you see in the building thread, but another built the same way except for a couple differences. The layup uses a lighter uni-directional carbon skin. It's a two piece wing. Both use a 6062 airfoil.

I have a dumb question.

On the west coast the wind always comes up in the afternoon and we fly over the ocean looking into the sun.

If you fly in the afternoon on the East Coast you should have the sun at your back.

In the video the sun looked like it was on the horizon. What time of day were you flying?

Dawn Patrol?
