Traxxas Slash 1/16. This morning provided fantastic colours with sunrise and thick frost on the ground. The mini Slash brushed was captured with the Turnigy/SJCAM. Music by me: www.soundcloud.com/Edgery

The months have passed one after another and I did not get into the air until today.

Forecast was shaky, low fog hurt visibility and rain fell while I was trekking towards the slope spot. Upon arrival conditions turned OK, wind picked up and an hour later occasional spots of blue sky showed and pockets of warmer air provided some extra push.

The Phoenix 1600 flew well but could have done even better - I erred on the safe side with the battery and got it slightly nose-heavy.

Dan took his Funglider and it flew awesome as always. I did not bring mine up. At the end of the half hour flight with the Phoenix I was already shaking and hurting from the cold damp wind; a stiff +4C (40F) and 4bft is OK for a short time...

Next time is 2017!
