Could be quite wet under foot in the field as the cold front passes through (the field doesn't drain that well), expecting a little rain mid morning and clearing up PM, possibly a bit windy (gusts to 15mph) with some thermic activity (RASP 300ft/min midday). I have to see my farmer early on, but hoping to get down there before lunchtime.

Bouncy, Bouncy, Bouncy.

Max ave 'up' on the first flight was 5.8 m/s....... five 360's over Upton from 400ft and I was at base at 2,650ft in less than 3 minutes.... A WOW for this this time of year!

Second flight, after the 'boomers' and rain passed was a more sedate pootle down the Severn with Mike, enjoying the scenery.

Was nice to meet Carl and 'Two Trees' Shaun.

I'm just worrying now about my inferiority, not having a 'posh' looking paramotor.....

Thanks Jock - apreciated.

You took your speed bar attachment off yet ? Still dont explain the fact i couldnt flip the flap up on my macro. Maybe i should loosen the straps and tighten them in flight ?

Carl

Yes redone speed bar today.looking for pg wing so i can land slower.ive loosen my straps as well.should do the trick.
