Another successful flight It's a fun little bird and quick. Landings are the only drama but, so far so good!

A crappy screen shot from a video caught the fall of 2014. I need to edit the video and I'll post it up. This is pretty common having these immature Eagles harassing me. I have had a group of 14 taking turns for 20 minutes! It gets old pretty quick! I like the video but really, I avoid them whenever possible. Fourteen years on these slopes and I have only made contact twice. Once resulting in a crash. Good news is the damage wasn't too bad.

Just finished my R3. No build log sorry. Just don't really have patients for that besides there's enough already Came out pretty light as far as these lead sleds go. 50 oz all up with plenty of room for ballast Two layers 5.7 oz carbon plain weave on the bias with .75 glass outer skin. Waiting for a good day to maiden. Can't wait to fly it. We get plenty of days this can get flown so, I look forward to that!

My Pike Precision had a Peregrine Falcon follow it for a little bit today. No drama like last time Had one after my D60 a day we had 45-50mph winds and I had 20oz of ballast. No shortage of speed on my part and I could not shake it! Was pretty cool actually but, man there was no getting away. It finally chose to give up.

This is what happens most of the time when flying though I don't let them get so close when not making video. I'm flying my Pike Precision here.

One of my all time favorites. This is my third in 13 years. Lost one, crashed the 2nd after 11 years of duty while dsing!! Beefed up the weak points with CF. 24 oz AUW

Had 50+ mph but it was way too turbulent to think about DSing. Front side was barely doable....massive down air with huge lift and very gusty. Still had to fly once! Very challenging....

Things are looking better in the wind department these days. Looking forward to flying the D60 more. Just a pic after a successful flight

Added a bit of color to the tips of my Erwin. I really like how it looks.
