Thanks Wayner. Someone didn't like my optimism because the minimum wind in Berkeley was 20-25mph today. I stayed all day hoping it would die down, but by the time I left at 7pm it was ramping up to about 35 mph!!!  :'(

I am not sure how to post videos in the forum. How do you post a video so it can be watched within the forum?

Lets see if these links work better....

AVFFF fail #1


AVFFF fail #2


I was able to repost correctly now that I know how to post videos.

Okay, so I am giving up on youtube. I signed up for vimeo so hopefully this works better.

Also, I went to Berkeley this morning and I am pretty sure I completed the challenge. Of course I need Norm to review my video first and approve it. There are plenty of fails in the video to see I have been working hard at this challenge.

The two points in the video that I think I have completed the challenge are at:

1:55 & 2:38

Norm, you weren't joking about the slack...

Let me know what you think.

Drew, that is totally awesome. The pace you're learning this stuff is amazing. I am going to quit my job (kidding) and camp out at the Marina.

Good job kiddo!

Nice job Drew... Sooner or later I'll post four or five.  It can wear one out trying to get four.  But Norm knows I have to be smooth when I do it..

btw:  Those flight straps will change your flying for the good.  Anyone else if you don't have Norms flight straps ..You can get them from Kites and Fun Things.  I gave away 7 sets of the premier straps.  I fly with Norms straps on all my lines... You owe this to your self...  If you buy them and don't like em'./. I'll buy them from you...  Vert.

Joe, I am sure you will. I have seen your videos. You have got it down, the wind looked pretty high in your videos. I went early in the morning in Berkeley when the winds had died down (a bit..., it is Berkeley you know) and it was easier.

I have been doing a number of them...  I am learning to slow down... My goal has been taking care of my nemesis  The "Fade"... Norm is right my most success comes from my Std. Widow Maker in about 6/7 mph... She loves to Fade and my lack of extra slack is made up by it being heavier and pulling more slack from me...  I now set up each AVFFF before going further.  I have done four in a row.
But my goal is to do them like Norm.  Smooth and easy.. Not charging and pulling and jumping... Getting that fourth one nice and sharp.. Not just made it style...

Corn is planted and time to fly...
