Maiden Flight Aerofever Salto

Maiden flight of my Aerofever Salto being towed with my electric Telemaster. The landing looks hard, but it went fine. I had way too much down elevator compensation mixed with spoilers

Salto from Nitroplanes

I made a video of the Nitroplane Salto at our local slope. According to the pilot, the CG is 1/4" in front of the wing rod, spoilers are not effective for landing. This Salto flies great as long as you keep up the speed. Be easy on the elevator stick! This glider flew in 14-20mph wind.

Manfred Radius Salto

Another 96" wingspan Salto (from Nitroplanes) flying at the slope. Minimal paint scheme is based on German airshow pilot Manfred Radius' full scale Salto. CG is 1/4" in front of the wing rod, which has been reinforced with a steel rod inside the carbon tube. Wind was around 15mph. At the end you will also see what is left after the landing of my LS-4:

Salto in High Wind

Today, we had winds in excess of 24mph, gusting up to 45mph. I was very surprised how well the Salto performed, Mike even flew outside loops!

Joe you slope nutz that dares to fly in cold weather like this

Up in Toronto, on -10 C and the wind blows at 20mph. At tyhe ridge it felt like 30mph! I flew for a 5 minutes and my frozen finger tells me to land, and land quick!

I love your video clip.

Cheers.

Our slope has a very steep angle, so the wind actually blows over our heads if we stand a little back. Therefore, we do not experience the wind chill. With several layers of clothing and some hot tea we can stay warm and play with our toys all day!
