The forecast was for a rainy and windy day. Curt and I were not convinced that meant the entire day would be garbage. We made plans to meet at 5, after the rain had past and give it a shot. I decided to invite Greg along too.
Our optimism was rewarded with favorable conditions. I jumped up first to confirm things were as nice aloft as they felt on the ground. They were and so we geared up Curt and set up the comms. Curt’s first attempt was good enough to get him into the sky. He made several laps around the field to get accustomed to the controls then he set it safely down on the field. Congratulations Curt!!
Greg was next but wasn’t as fortunate. Unfortunately one misstep put him on his butt and the frame fractured at an old repair weld ending our day. Fortunately this launch was recorded on video for analysis which meant lots was learned from that attempt. Both Greg and I are confident that he will be flying next time we meet.
