Went flying...

Postby rgroener » Sat Oct 01, 2016 2:55 pm

Yesterday I went to the field to try the new winder in action.
It was calm and the light was beautifully. Since I did not have to much time, I only took the Albtros with me.
Here are some pics of it in the air.

is your albatros built from the Stahl-plans?

If not mistaken, it is a Keith Sterner designed model carried by Aerowerkes (Dave).

You are right, it's the kit from Aerowerkes.
Nice build, reliable flyer.
But I store the stab on a flat underlay to prevent warping.

The weather wasnt that nice today, but at least it was quite calm.
So I went to my field did some flying and tried to take some pics despite the missing sun...

I hope some of you will post too in this thread. It was not meant to be my privat flying picture thread... :roll:

Great pics as always Roman. I particularly like the second one with that moody sky!
I would post more pics if either, 1/I could take them like yours, and 2/if I had a few more chances to go flying :cry:. I will try, honest.

ps glad to see you do sometimes have cloud in Switzerland :lol:

Great stuff, Roman. That SE5 always looks the business in the air, and so does your Albatros.

Well done on getting the cloudy sky shot too- bet you had to be quick to get it! Here of course we sometimes get wind, clouds and even, dare I say it, RAIN all at the same time. Can you imagine such a thing!? :D
