This was the limited edition . it never made it off the ground very far due to it's high wing loading .but it was reported to have made it rain on launch angering the local pilots .

IMHO , I think it would be a mistake to continue on to a Litesport or a T2 at this time . PIO's have a way of Scaring the crap out of you, and undermining your confidence levels to the point of making you seriously question your flying abilities. he needs to step back think it all through & rebuild ...

That's great Orion :!: looks like you're coming along nicely. If you want to keep your "0 wack/botched launches" status keep going to the beach and practicing your basics . they are Soooooooooo important and Soooooooooo easily forgotten if you don't practice. I would also go back and reread all your...

Yes, we now refer to that landing approach as "plan O". Well I can see were feeling much better after taking out a shoulder & leading edge , but then again any landing you walk away from is a good landing intentional or otherwise. :P :lol: :D :)We had a great time thanks again for your Hostility an...
