Quote from: geoffers on July 22, 2012, 19:18:45 pmHope you don't mind a polite suggestion NOT to fly power at the slope (could hear it nearly 1km away at the car). Remember, we're flying on private land and the landowners have been supportive, but we don't want to jeapordise this arrangement on the best slope in the area.

Quote from: geoffers on August 30, 2012, 20:50:15 pmContinuing on with the new slope & animal antics theme ... Just had one of the best slope sessions ever, with the fully loaded Blade screaming round on an another new coastal slope: [attach=1]I want it to stay NW'ly forever Slope is 70m high straight off the channel - lift was awesome : so much so that it was difficult to get the plane down again (all slope-no flat LZ) Animal antics included a couple of frisky horses galloping just feet away across the flightline which was a tad worrying/exciting - then some dog walker lost control of an Alsation which started attacking a herd of sheep - coincidentally the farmer had just arrived in his Landy so he went tearing across the field to sort the situation out. It meant I was eventually able to have a friendly chat with him, and he was happy with me flying there.Photo of yesterday's "twister"[attach=2]
