Well, it works, more or less!
I took the Aegea out with a hi-start and tried looking for thermals. After a slow start I spotted a hawk circling and headed for it. It was a big thermal, plenty of lift and I was nervous about flying right out of the field. It ended up not being a big problem after all, but good while it lasted.
So, I've not mastered the art yet, but it's a different challenge and a good one to work on. All I need is some more sunny weather and some time free in the middle of the day. Why does that never seem to happen?
A video of the flight for your enjoyment!
