Is your Bird electrified, or did you just happen to catch the boomer of all boomer thermals straight out of your hand? And right when you decided to video the flight at that!
I'm afraid the bird is electric. Gets too expensive travelling to the best slope so I make do with this one on way back from work. Works well with an initial boost to height. I must admit that the video was stitched from one taken by my wife when the weather was much sunnier. The flight into the clouds was taken in between showers. Mist was blowing in all the time but the clips fitted together. Looking to catch a buzzard in flight from the glider cam. Only got lucky once. The music by Enya fits in so well with the scenery from the Glens of Antrim.
There are good thermals at that site but I am often too chicken to soar up to a speck.
