Tip tangles


Recommended Posts

Had a tip tangle on take-off today. Not too bad, needed left brake at 2 or 3 to hold straight. The tip steering line had got itself tied in with the C's. Like flying with a little "big ear" on one side.

More interestingly, this was my first flight on my new AC Nitro 200.....as my other machine broke again!

Nicely handled. Tip tangles like these aren't uncommon and a lot of people report it. It would definitely make me a bit nervous. :D

I love the AC's and that's what I'll be looking to upgrade to when the time is right. Been looking around for some 130's as this would suit a skeleton like me (68kg) ideally but there aren't any around for sale second hand and unsure whether they still sell them brand new.

I also love the views man, a bit jealous really! Should come over there for a day of flying if that's possible at all. Where about is it? Looks like somewhere in Spain.

You should be awarded with the "Luckiest Guy Ever" medal LOL :D It truly is very beautiful man, I'd absolutely love to fly about there!

So am I invited then or what? :D 


Fellow flyers are always welcome to visit. Amazing mountain flying as well! I am here 6 months of the year....Jan/Feb, May/Jun and Sep/oct. :)
