Back in the sky!!!!

Today I-NOIR flew again, eventually!!! (Somebody may think: it was time!)

After an aborted take-off (off center hook - I am now quite convinced that the best tip is a wing assistant who holds back the left wing during the early phase of the start), I have made a short flight to test the commands, the instruments and the general behaviour of the glider.

It's really a pleasure flying this glider!

Too bad that an approaching thunderstorm forced me to land ...

Here you can find a short footage of the "event"...

Footage of a nice flight on August 31st this year.
Hard start, but then always over 2.000m around.
Great visibility, general wind NE not ideal for distance.

Some pictures from my first flight of this season, due to unlucky, unsuitable, winter weather.

Almost 3 hours in the air, not great distance, but lovely snowy landscape (here in Central Italy).

A short video from the first flight of this season 2014.

Sorry, but I wasn't aware that the camera was not properly mounted.

Anyway, I believed the landscape and the sky worth to be celebrated, so I have realized and posted the footage (to test my first time with IMovie, also ...).

Some pictures of I-NOIR (EOS) in flight, during last week's stage in Rieti.

Shot by a friend while circling at approx 2.400 m ASL above Mount Terminillo:
- over Cittaducale;
- looking East (Gran Sasso in the far background)
- looking North
