Threw Easy Star into Canyon & Crash! Onboard Video

I got board this afternoon and really wanted to fly. As always by the time I get off work, the wind gets crazy. I wanted to try a new place to fly, so I went to the Canyon where all the Dirt Bikes ride. 1st Video is a crash when I threw her into the Canyon. 30 Seconds long. 2nd Video I decided on a new launch location and got her up, then I dipped her into the Canyon. Nice flight, but you'll see that at one point she drops like 10 feet without warning. I'm very curious about what happen. Any clues? Second vid is about 5 minutes. Here's some pictures of the flight, crash.

It didn't take very long to get to that plane eating bush. And did I see thorns on that bush? But, just think of all the wondedrful trash you got to video? Great bottle! Hee Hee. At least you were able to get it back quickly. Nice video once you got her up and going. Sorry about the crash.

Thanks. Ya the bikers don't take care of the area at all. There's trash every where. I would love to get a slope plane and take it up to the hills. I'll have to research on a nice slope plane. I'm going to White Sands this week end and will get some nice footage.

You wont regret it! Swing through the Slope forum in the sailplane section for all the info you can handle!
