My thoughts about shooting gaps with the SW is to always aim low. It will skip off the ground but it will get caught in tree limbs very easy. Another is to adjust the contrast in your goggles so you can see the light through the trees. If you get a really bright spot there's a 90% chance it will fit.
I have also learned not to trust tire tracks in the snow. I followed a few through tree gaps that were very perilous only later to find out that they were quad tracks and not car or truck tracks. That makes a big difference!

cool vid KNO3! the first time you passed by that underpass I thought "oh I know what's gonna happen next. a minute later I had a huge grin on my face. sorry about the crash, this kind of thing happens when you fly low!
That crash was nothing serious, plane needed some hot glue and drying but all the electronics were fine.
I guess it’s because the battery disconnected on impact, so no short circuits.
OK, had to get out and do some flying. Havent been out since sometime in NOVEMBER!

Flew a pack through the Skyfun today at lunchtime. I stopped at the snowmountain that the city has been building, from the snow removed off the roads. Its really big right now!!!
Watch for the tree hit and the great landing at the end. Oh yeah, that take off is something else too... Broke the rust free from my fingertips after so many winter months. It was still -20*c out there today.
KNO3, that was jawdropping. Great flying man!
