Solar panels


Recommended Posts

Yes, they are not something that is fun to go over, especially low down. There were thousands of large birds on hand showing where the big thermals were and I was fighting for stability the whole time. At one point I went from under 200 feet to over 1100 with my engine at idle!!!!

I think this solar farm might be one of the largest in Europe. It is 3 miles across.

Working on every flyable day for the last 4 years in between two 'small ish' solar farms I have concluded, they are only bumpy on the days when it's bumpy if that makes sense. lol 

So for a school, it's not a big issue here as we tend not to fly when it's thermic. 

Lift, yes... bumps..... not so much so. 

That said, the one you are over is about 10-15 x the size of ours! lol
