Dynamic Soaring (DS) on 50ft Dam in TN


Here is some onboard footage of slope soaring, formation slope soaring, and dynamic soaring from www.hobby-lobby.com FlyCamOne2.

This was an experiment if we could slope on 30ft rock side of dam and DS on 50' backside. It worked but a bit tight for laps and not much room for error! Oct 2008.

Glider is 1.5m (60") "sixty" or "epsilon 1.5". Approx 23oz RTF. Mine was Not a DS version but mixed carbon fiber fuselage. Awesome all-around thermal, slope, DS glider!
