Wanted to maiden my Birdie slope soarer but winds had risen to >20kph when I arrived.

I therefore maidened at the base of my local sloping hill. This video is of three short flights with me adjusting CG as I went. Final CG was as per the manual 70mm from LE.

Terrible place to fly as the air was turbulent. This is very much shown in the video, with me porpoising trying to keep control!

Pleased with this glider. Think it would be an ideal almost-still-day slopey :-)

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
