Wind, hill, ... I'm keen ...

Beautiful work Ian. You could really see the speed you had coming downwind over Weldon! The lenticular clouds, great views of the ridge ... really nice. I wondered what those flat bottomed boats on the lake do when the wind picks up out there!

Those are actually pontoon boats on the lake. They're not very fast, but they cut through the
waves pretty good.

Are you still line of sight in that canyon at the start, or do you have a relay drone?

Flying from up on the edge, looking down into it. It's an overlook in Utah
just off I-70 westbound that I stopped at on the drive out. Only made one flight
and didn't want to risk catching one of those hard to see trees and
wasting an hour hiking down there and back.

I was thinking if you had clipped the ground in that canyon that was going to be a tough recover! Great footage! You sold me on wanting to travel with FPV gear now..

My trip has scone to an end, seated in premium economy on air nz out of LA after another few weeks travelling north America.

Thank you to all the amazing people who have made this an experience and a half! Hoping you get a good weldon day tomorrow (looking like a good 400 day, day after I leave )

Looking forward to getting home

Excellent video. Enjoyed all the gliders but I especially liked Bruce's F20. Watching that was inspirational.

Thanks Brent
Was so happy to see video #2 to watch with my Sunday morning coffee. Then to see The TRock flying fast awesome.
Also seeing the first damage evidence, I’m stoked how well she held up. Will be using that layup lots more.
