|Greetings from sunny (?!) Barcelona!|
|(1/3) > >>|
Today we woke up and our Mediterranean land was covered with snow! :o
The flying field two blocks from home was transformed: ???
But then the sun came out and a nice low wind from WNW started to blow.
So I had to take my Talon UL out... :P
... and I started to clumsily practice a couple of tricks (fades, 540's... and I even got a pseudo Taz almost at the end):
Remember to select HD and full screen...
Well done Ara. Looks like you're making progress. Do you find your Talon is making things easier?
:D :D :D...What I seen (and I'm certainly no expert) was progress..progress..progress.
I seen you putting the Talon in a full pancake and popping/pulling it back out to fade. I seen a half-axel to fade. I seen a tilt forward and was very close to a roll-up, which in my opinion is an advanced trick. You can use some more fade management and line control, but all in all I seen lots of improvement. I certainly hope you will join in the next "trick challenge" as it will be well suited for you. 8)
Yup, I see a lot of new tricks added to your bag. Coin toss, flapjack, 540s for the left & right, and I think that was a better Taz than I can pull off. I bet some of that you can attribute to flying good kites, but the rest is from practice & hard work. Good stuff... :)
Those colors work great on the Talon, particularly with a snow backdrop. Nice picture!
What lines were you flying in the video? I find my Talon Std quite flyable in UL-territory winds with 50x50 lines. But since I like my Talons so much (see http://www.gwtwforum.com/index.php?topic=9271.0), I am currently saving on a UL. :P
