One of the things other pilots have done with their model airplanes that has impressed me a lot is handcatch them instead of landing on the ground.
We have had some lovely weather lately and I decided to try my hand (pun intended) at it. I loaded up my favourite Easy Star with a 2200mAh lipo and strapped my FlyCamOne onto the battery tray I have, just above the canopy.
This video consists of the first attempts. It was windy and warm so I had some thermals to contend with. If you find the climbouts boring, feel free to skip forward.
