Brendan goes Discus
What a brilliant and beautiful evening slope session up at Chappies yesterday… Marc where were you? Marc?
Lionel, Brendan and myself were the lucky lab rats to escape the cage.
Warm conditions on a North Wester and with reasonable lift, that had a tendency
to go on/off at the most inconvenient times…
Brendan chose to maiden his 3M Discus and attached are a few shots of the man and machine.
A very good looking bird, it has a habit of bending its wings,
which kinda gives you a heart attack, but just seems to be part of the gliders characteristics.
The conditions were bumpy every now and then, and the wings
were very clear indicators of the state of the lift at that point.
Still, the Discus has great energy retention and looks really good in the air.
Well done Brendan on two incedence free flights and a successful maiden flight.
