PA Slopin' Part 3

We had plenty of wind, lots of sun, and a beautiful scenery at the slope over the weekend. We were able to fly endless loops in number and radius
Most gliders were ballasted, and we tested what load our wings would stand. Although we did not have a radar gun, we believe that some of our dive passes were around 100mph at least.

That sure was a great day of flying...only one casualty on the day. Not Bad! Sweet job on the editing!

Very nice Alex. It was cool to have a different perspective of the Sprinter flying. Thanks for sharing.

Great video! thanks for all the time you took to make it. BTW the extended version is even better [maybe 'cause my M60 got more air time ]

Have some of those trees down, though, before I get there. I should hate to chop them down with epoxy and carbon fibre.

The lift is so huge and consistent, you should not have to chop them down. It would be nice to have more open space, but the lift is also very strong further out over the water, which is amazing.

That sure did look like a fun day. I really like seeing the launching and landing in videos.
