    Wind 5-9m/s, aber mit 40-55° von links!
    Also kaum nutzbarer Aufwind...
    Das Leg von links nach rechts war recht zügig, aber der Rückweg von rechts nach links mitunter nicht mehr möglich ;-).
    Der Candy Acro mini ist mit seinen 318g doch etwas zu leicht für solche Bedingungen.
    Am Ende noch ein paar Versuche mit meiner M60 von NCFM. Der Schwerpunkt stimmt einfach immer noch nicht.

    Dyke height ~3-4 m
    Wind 7-12 m/s, 3°C

    New, but not a perfect location as there is an additional earth wall 50m in front that cause some turbulences depending on the wind speed.

    Difficulty was to keep the EPP Marder in front of the slope, within the small lift band.
    Marder is not the fastests plane ;-).

    Never had so many tough "landings" within 45min.

    It was GREAT FUN to fly there!!!!

    Currently looking for a dyke compatible sloper which can fly faster, but is very agile on small locations as well...

    Bloody turbulent and rainy small dyke slope sesion.
    Wind around 6-7m/s, 15m/s in gusts.
    Pure fun - as always in such conditions :-)!

    Wrong video compression settings! Video has to be uploaded again...
