    Great 1.5 hour test flight, only onshore day between bouts of Santa Anas. Wind was SE and my left wing got lifted just as I started my launch run. Used a little body english as my feet left the ground to keep it together. Soared easily. PoS GoPro remote couldn’t communicate with the camera. Many many pilots out (esp. for a Friday) in the great conditions. Nice hike back up to get my truck after landing.

    This frames just begs, “Meme me!”….

    Ken Oops!

    …and so does my final glide into the nasty surface mess 275 feet East of the LZ in a 6mph tailwind.

    Luckily there was only pucker and no measurable drama yesterday.
