Third Time Lucky!

03.06.09: Big smiles all round!!!! The third test flight at Pontefract Park on Sunday morning proved to be really positive.  3 minutes 55 seconds worth of fun ;o)

I performed a slow figure ‘8’ pattern and roughly calculated a climb rate of +105ft/min. At 92kg ‘naked’ I am over-weight in terms of what I have specified the max pilot weight to be on the DIY web site but I still managed to ‘break free from the bonds of Earth’. Wind was light, 2-7mph varying N-NE.
