This is a Twilight Flight of my Durafly Me 163 Komet on 4S.

Durafly Me 163 Komet 950mm PNF 4S Twilight Flight (4 min 22 sec)

My pilot buddy Robert had never seen a Durafly Me 163 Komet in action, so this afternoon I took mine out of the hangar for a few sunset / twilight flights. On my last flight, Robert decided to record some video footage from his iPhone. I didn't realize he was recording my flight, otherwise I would have waited for him to get ready and settled so he would have been able to capture the takeoff. Either way, I think he took some excellent footage of my Komet doing what a Komet does best.

Don't blink.
