I threw together this footage in a rush. It is from a recent holiday to Stanwell Park with some mates for a week of relaxing by the beach and flying at one of the worlds most renowned coastal soaring sights. We were there from Boxing day 2011 till 3rd January 2012. The weather was perfect with warm thermic air and SSE 15kts winds. In the lead up to the Forbes Pre-Worlds Competition, there were a lot of top pilots from around the world at Stanwell and it was great to be able to meet and fly with them. On the way back we stopped off at Eden for a night and learned about the fascinating killer whales (orca) of Twofold Bay. But that's another story...
Unfortunately, I only used my GoPro for one flight - and in my stupidity used the wrong case so the lens fogged up. Oh well. Sorry about that.
The editing of this video is pretty rough so please excuse the quality. I didn't get around to smoothing the motion, the titles are crappy and the key-framing is quite jerky. I might get around to fixing some of these up at some stage...but not today.
Hope you like it. Happy Landings!
