Gliding video in Australia


Folks,
I have a link to some flying at one of the best slope and thermal sites in south eastern Australia. Lake George is near Canberra and is a popular location for photography and gliding for RC, Paragliders and Hang Gliders. Happy for feedback and there is more where this came from.

Hi BywongFlier,
I am new to Canberra & new to RC.. I took my son to Lake George about 3 weeks ago with a Gentle Lady and had some fun there. But it was just the 2 of us. Is there a Lake George Group we can join, or is there any way of knowing when people will be there.. Thanks Rob..

Hi there Rob,
I live just up the road from the rest area where we fly. The Lake George Soaring Association is the group I have just joined and the main emphasis is on gliding. I do occasionally fly my quad and other electric power there but always give way to gliders. If this is your deal then let me know and I can arrange for you to meet up with us on the usual Sunday morning 0800 start. If you are more interested in sports flying then there is CMAC and BMAC clubs in Canberra that I know little about.
BTW. Go check out my new You Tube channel "GreyPV AUS" and you will see a few vids I posted with action on the lake.

Rob,
I suffer the same and need to check my settings. Yes, it seems the stars are lining up and I will be on the lake Sunday morning along with a few others. Just park at the lower rest area and walk out (walk access via southern end of carpark over fence). I just received a Horizon Apprentice 1.5m to test for my brother in law so that should be interesting along with some fun flying the yellow Albatross 2M as seen in one of my vids. See you there.

Rob,
Yep. I saw a few posts on WhatsApp and a few will be there and 0800 is the usual kick off. I have see a few bungees out there as not all are electric gliders. I just pre flighted the Apprentice and am looking forward to giving that a few laps when gliders are clear. Should be a sunny morning so I also want to get some close ridge flying for another vid. Will be busy but fun.
Roger
