Seven of us made a trip out to Fults Illinois to enjoy a day of Slope Soaring in 20mph winds gusting to over 30mph. Fantastic day!

We had a chance to fly over on the Illinois side at the Chain of Rocks Bridge. With the water down on the Mississippi we flew from a large sand bar. First video, more to come with use of Bixler and the Scout Bee.

Hope to be able to help again sometime. Great club! Lesson learned ! Next time I will use my GPS cordinates on my OSD once loaded to PC. Then punch it into a Garmin / i phone, and walk directly out to the plane. Less damage to crops.

Less time working has led to more time working around the house and more time at the lake.

Following a path at park was a little bit of challenge, but going to the track and trying to keep it at a certain speed and height, was ugly. Need more practice.

Very enjoyable stay at Thousand Hills State Park. My family enjoyed the cabins, boating, swimming, and fishing for our 4 day stay.
I was very impressed to see how well the Restaurant, boat rental and the rest of the facilities were taken care of. The restaurant, you must try. Fantastic!

"I just want to fly" What was I thinking! We've been in drought conditions for months now. And for the Fourth of July all fireworks were band in our area.
You might see me in the shadows of the trees. It was 106*/ 40 celcius at 1930 hrs. Brutal!

Slope Soaring at Long Branch Lake

LONG BRANCH LAKE (2 min 46 sec)

On our drive up to Thousand Hills Lake for our mini vacation we stopped and checked out Long Branch Lake in Macon Missouri. 20 years ago I would come to this lake with members of Mississippi Valley Soaring Association in the Fall months and fly our slopers from the dam.
Before I flew I noticed I had a huge mayfly on my shirt sleeve. Soon after my first toss, a bazillion Swallows joined me in flight "the Mob affect"
Never seen so many!

Looking for FPV pilots in the St. Louis Area. I will travel couple hours on the weekend if we can spend most of the day flying.

Looks like a great plane to fly. Enjoying the build so far. At this point I have some of the FPV gear installed. I will be covering the wings ...partially with NS 3 mill. in the weeks to come.

Chipped a prop on the first flight...sorry for the jello
I have flown slope for many years in a small town of Fults Illinois. The hill is a Bluff, and as you can see every hill in the Mid West is covered with trees. Two weeks ago my buddy and I were racing our slopers on the hill. We collided on a turn. I was able to fly it out down to the farm land. My buddy flew off back into the hill. We spent several hours looking for his plane. I went back with the FPV Tricopter for a search of it, and had some fun.
