Hi There,
Thanks for posting , I really enjoyed that . Seems to be very little signs of strong wind so I guess it's a leap of faith and hopeing you find a strong thermal.
Stunning scenery.
regards
Mike

North Yorkshire UK, on a big hill facing the prevailing wind. Coincidence?

I saw this post and thought "no way do I have 6 mins and 40 secs to watch this before work".

I started work 6 mins 40 secs late.

Lovely video - thanks.

Yep...wonderful scenery!! Even if the models weren't there, I would love to just hike around. Reminds me of my visit to the Berner Oberland and Hannenmosspass (SP?) I always swore that I would go back for another visit someday.

The DG1000 take off was a bit nerve racking. Nice video, Spot landing at its best.
