Hay-on-Wye, the Golden Valley and the Black Mountain


Recommended Posts

Here are some shots from a flight I did this morning around Hay-on-Wye, including Hay Bluff, the Black Mountains and the Golden Valley. The wind was a little strong and a bit blustery. I was up for over two hours and topped out at 2300ft. On a calmer day I would like to fly around the mountains, or onwards to Brecon. I will be on the hunt for petrol stations by the side of the road - any suggestions?

Pete,

Next year if you want to do the USSR, I will sponsor you some kit and your petrol :-)

I recon you will win it!

SW :D

Very kind - I would give it a good go! Average flight time for the last 8 sorties is approaching 2 hrs - so I'm getting used to covering some distance! I have yet to fly a complete full tank on the Macro, I think I could do well over three hrs in the air. Not as economical as many motors but good enough for me.

Another flight over Hay Bluff and the Black Mountains. Not such a good camera this time - an iPhone in a plastic bag.

Today was my first flight in many months and it was worth waiting for. I had to wait a bit longer than expected because it took me 5 attempts to get off the ground (lack of practice, uneven ground and a very light wind which seemed to randomly come from all four points of the compass). Lovely still air once up though, and great views over to the Brecon Beacons.
