Driving through the country on a long road trip, and I spotted an intriguing mountain range in the distance. I found a park about 2.5km from the cliffs and quickly pulled my Easy Glider out of the car for a quick early morning run in unfamiliar territory.
My aim was to fly as close to the cliffs as possible, but the turbulence against the cliff face was too strong, and I didn't risk getting closer than you see here. Otherwise the air was dead calm - no lift at that hour but with a 13 to 1 glide ratio, I managed to sail all the way home without power.
A great flight. No music, just the air rushing over the wings as I experienced it with goggles and headphones... But man I hate that cheap Hobby King 180 degree pan servo... :(
