Launch and land practice

I just posted a new YouTube video showing how I approach launch and landing practice for thermal duration (TD) contests. I did it to answer questions from several friends but thought it was worth posting here. This video shows the last 4 landings during a 2-hour practice session at our club's field. Chris B.

Great!

Fun video! Looks like a great place to fly.

Good flying too! I think I learned more than all the soaring master videos

Hey William, thanks for your kind comments. I just checked out your blog and I see you do landing practice too--nice vid.

BTW, your Super Supra looks awesome. One of our club members here Bill Curry has also scratch built a big Supra for CC flying. I'm passing your blog link on to him so you guys can compare notes.

Good flying!
Chris B.

Looking at your blog! Very cool.

I'm thinking about a hero, we had so much fun with a 25$ mini camera.
