So I flew a Sport 3 155 from Marshall today. It was fun.
I fly with music a lot, usually a 60s-Today mix on random (listen to it while building gliders sometimes, too), and today I finally rigged-up wires so I could listen to music while I fly AND have it recorded on the video camera at the same time. Worth the effort! Great sound too.
Numerous pilots out flying up near the low clouds. Saw a group of comp HG wings coming back from Strawberry as I arrived at Marshall.
Yesterday and today a number of pilots had their otherwise-trapped families along to finally see what the hell it is they do every weekend.May 2, 2020 at 9:25 PM #8247
Again with the random mp3s going to headphones and camera while flying the Sport 3 155 hang glider at Marshall Peak, CA, 5/2/2020.May 3, 2020 at 7:32 AM #8248
To round things out, here’s the May 2, 2020 top landing with random soundtrack to headphones and video camera.
After reviewing the landing I find I can plausibly ascribe the poor flare and body slide to the apex pad on the left downtube. I semi-subconsciously stopped raising my hands to normal flare position when I felt the pad so I lost reach. I used the apex pad to hold the mp3 player, splitter, and wires to the downtube. Rigging-things-up at launch has drawbacks.
