Although the morning brought gusty north winds to this arid land, the clouds formed up nicely for a 3pm takeoff at 2100 meters and "mild" thermal-dynamic conditions allowed us to get about 350 meters over launch at times. I dedicated the day to playing with the go-pro camera and messing about with small wingovers and a few fun little spirals.
Ran into sink leaving the mountain and, even though i went on glide towards the official landing with the required height (of the tops of the antennas) i ran into sink while crossing the highway (gulp!) and barely made it to the upwind corner of the field! Good fun, excellent flying, crisp images from the gopro except for a few minutes when condensation blurs the screen. Amazingly the condensation disappeared after...probably due to the fact that i gained more altitude?'?
