My best video to date… includes not-seen-before flip tricks, a lot of fun super close-in ultrabatic flying, and tons of drags!!! Great jam session with my ultralight Le FIsh, shared with Justin “JGAF” Gafford and his own-design Buzz. Epic good times!
Another fun railslide session at Long Beach – finally got a halfway decent slide, really stoked on that. Plenty of funny crashes, too – railsliding is hard on planes, good thing an ultrabat is nearly indestructible!
I’ve taken a new job with an absolutely fantastic nonprofit headquartered in Goleta… conveniently only about 7 minutes away from Ellwood! Lunchbreak flying sessions are happening and they are fantastic, I feel so fortunate to get to do meaningful work as well as fly much more regularly than ever before. Stoked!!
This video is one of my best yet, showing as well or better than any what I am trying to accomplish in my flying: a mix of traditional aerobatics, VTPR, Madflight, and some of my own touches and ideas. It’s a work in progress but I’ve never had so much fun with a model airplane! Really a joy every time I go out
A fun session with Dawson Henderson and our ultralight Le Fish gliders out at Ellwood Mesa. Wind was quite strong by Ellwood standards, blowing out of the WSW and averaging about 15mph with gusts higher.
So long as we stayed in the vertical component of the lift band things worked out just fine… really a great time flying ultrabatics together!
