Got out again with my sloping buddies.
The day started in the 60"s but was in the low 40's by late afternoon when we made it to the hill 12 to 15 mph.
Flights with the Sizzle, Ka-8, Sally, Ez glider and Zagi
A good Time was had by all !

The weather was forecast for NNW again so I loaded up the Swift and the Sizzle to be ready after work .
End of the work day arrived and they were calling for 18 to 19 mph and mid thirties temp and we had sunshine again {a gift at this time of year }

I put the Swift up and was trying to shoot move video with the I phone Head cam but the wind blew it off my head and ended that thought.

I flew for around 45 minutes in less than perfect conditions, gusty and often crossed ,the local news said the gusts were around 24 mph but it felt much higher rocking me back on my heels more than a few times.

I only had one pair of gloves on and would have liked too land earlier {my hands were starting to hurt pretty good } finally got a pop up that I could work with and set her down about 15 feet away, had to run to get to it while holding full down to keep her on the ground {and I don't run too fast any more}

The Sizzle got to sit this one out ,pilot was out of gas
