Hey Jock, that picture of you in the first post are you clipped in backwards, as the speed bar pulley is at the rear of the riser?

Yes it was,it was a new ajustable speed bar.i left it slack so i could ajust it in flight.but saw the riser and bar line was twisted when flying. still had good flight...

Great to meet up with you guys again (missed Phil as I'd b*ggered off on another flight...), and nice to see Jock's shiny new toy. Great afternoon (accidentally in and out of the clouds at 3,600ft....) 3 trips to straight to cloudbase from 400ft agl. Just 2.5 litres of fuel used in 2hrs of flying on the first flight. Average climb rate to 800ft/min at times. 12 deg C in the clouds. Nice second flight along the Severn. Pics just out of the clouds did not work due to the water on the lens, but some later were just about ok. Catch you all again soon. Richard.

PS - I kept the restaurant happy allowing us to use their car park, by purchasing a very delicate refreshment post flight. Quite a good arrangement in my books!

We'll also have to keep vigilant on the 500ft rule next to that road (excl take off & land). I can possibly see someone complaining if we start misusing the privilege.

See you next time!

Richard
