One last one take sequence from the flying at Ellwood a week ago… this one was filmed after “Dreamsequence” and before the segment with Peter in “Compilation”.
The fog was in the process of burning off so there’s a cool mix of cloud, blue sky, sun, and wind going on. I really like these sort of “in between” conditions; so often Ellwood is cloudless that it’s nice on days like this where we get a little bit of what passes for “weather” here in Santa Barbara.
I am really happy with the flow in this video. Recently been trying to work more rolls into my flying after eschewing them for a long time and it’s fun, helping to keep the “nonstop acro” idea going as I move from figure to figure. There are a number of close passes and one fun belly drag. I stood back from the lip a bit to better capture the low passes so you can see when the weeds get whacked more clearly than in older vids.
Some great flying from Sam Pilebuck and others at the recent Eagle Butte Slope Jamboree. Nice smooth lift and beautiful molded gliders tearing it up… ahhh, that never gets old! Thomas “Wakumann” Rauber filmed the videos… very nicely done.
More footage of Roger “Cliff Hanger” Brown’s beautiful homebuilt Jedi aerobat shredding it up at the Bwlch in South Wales. Great music and flying, you gotta love this!
Rhys Porter of Queensland, Australia has built an Aero-Glide inspired ultrabatics glider he’s named the Yoda. Really cool
Another fresh one from Dawson’s trip to NorCal. Here he is flying his ultralight Le Fish on the dunes near Marina. This looks like so much fun… watch for the cool touch & go!!
Dawson being awesome on a recent roadtrip he took to Northern California! Here he is flying his ultralight Le Fish at Coyote Hills near Fremont. Really smooth and some great low passes!
A compilation of flying from the past week here in Santa Barbara. Three different pilots flying three different gliders at three different spots: Michael Richter at Shoreline Park with the 16.8oz Le Fish, Peter Richner with the 9oz Steigeisen at Ellwood Mesa, and finally me, Steve Lange, with the 17oz Aero-Glider at the Ruins.
