e2vdavidb Posted April 1, 2019 Share Posted April 1, 2019 I had some fun flying end of last week in Ampfing Germany from a small airfield. Great sight to fly from but a couple of topic that may restrict future flying. I must carry airband radio as all traffic is controlled, ok fair enough and useful to hear the other traffic so I know to look out. Thursday had 2 flights in perfect weather with minimal other traffic at the airport. Friday flying delayed due to some strong winds, 17-27kph with strong and irregular gusts. By 3pm it was flyable but traffic was getting high and whilst the controller was very accommodating I could not help but feel a little vulnerable landing into 15kph winds on my super slow approach. At no time was there any problem, local UL pilot very friendly bunch, but I decided at that time that I would fit a strobe to my Parajet V3 just to add some additional chance. Its under 100 GBP and I don't expect to notice the strobe other than maybe late evening flying. I did look at the MicroAvionics but all the pics a have seen make it look a bit bulky. Next job to model a bracket for the 3D printer to mount it on the cage. Maybe its a bit of paranoia but for less than 200g I think its ok. Thoughts?
