                from Dawson Henderson Added 502 1 3

                I had a fun aerobatic session with my light Le Fish glider (21.5 oz) this past weekend. The gusty, thermally 12-18 mph wind was almost too much wind for this lightweight.

                      It was a perfect day for playing on the slope... sunny and warm with a variable breeze in the teens and twenties. This low angle slope at Sheba Crater (a cinder cone) is well suited for VTPR and "hover-batics"…
