    flying hard. Very hard. And crashing at 131km/h.

    something was very wrong with the video levels on my DVR. The picture looked perfect in my goggles. I will fix this.
    Get me a Crocodile sandwich. And make it snappy.

    I learned lots on this flight today.
    1) Have your GPS set, when you fly a new location you are not familiar with
    2) Have your GPS set, when its windy when you fly a new location
    3) Expect the unexpected. Full scale pilots love to fly in valleys!
    4) Dont try to get more out of your pack. If you used 33% on the first climb, you'll use at least that much on the second, plus your reserve buffer.
    5) Be sure of where your plane is. Especially when cross wind can carry you sideways, mountain peaks start looking the same after a while.
    6) That reserve buffer in your battery needs to support an unexpected downwind return to home!

    All in all, it was a fun flight. A little too much adrenaline / brown stain for my preference, but any successful flight is a good flight.

    Flew the microquad for a short hop in the cockpit to make sure all was working before flying the Drak on the next trip out to the field. Think its time to break out the miniquads and try some one on one around the pylons with a fellow flier for the weekly competition round.

    My first post here so hello to everyone. It`s a video from a cloudy early morning. The plane is built from scratch - 800mm wingspan, high wing pusher with auw=280 grams. The camera is a quanum elite AIO unit with 25 mW output. I cut my wings with my diy cnc-hotwire. It is rudder-elevator controlled and I have been trying wings with different airfoils on this plane just for fun. At this flight it is NACA6409.
    Best wishes,
    Esen
