"My Slope" Rubbish unedited footage....

Well the weekend was windy, sunny and fun and I learnt a bit about mouldies that aren't 60"s, so here's a link to an overly long bit of vid. I've only got my elderly, portable workshop Mac with me on the road so anything like editing will have to wait, along with more footage. A bit gusty at first and I spend a bit of time getting height before walking back up the lane to the top of the hill.

Pointers: TURN DOWN THE VOLUME!
On the opening bit admire my aberrant radial artieries (I am the upgrade!)
About 2.33 admire the huge LZ
Some where around 12 min there is a loop!!!! And even some inverted!!!!!!!!!!!
AND ITS ALL RUBBISH. But I still can't believe I can buy a video recording camera at this price (FLyCamOne2). The footage is scrunched down to fit on an iPod.
1st landing at around 16min saw me bail when I realised that it didn't feel right so i exited. Next time round few swconds later i realised to late the Tx was in normal phase so flaps were linked to ailerons (baaaad for yaw!!!) and I sideslipped in (very safely). Try not to panic when she stops on the turn to landing, looks worse than it is and I've actually got that one sorted.

Sounds windy! I liked the vid - that landing zone is ridiculous! How great!

Sticky tape (one inch uni-directional filament) to the top of the wing just infront of the CG. The camera weighs next to nothing so there's no load there.
