Yesterday was my birthday (47 only) and I took the afternoon off to go to the beach and have a nice flying time.
There was a gale though
But I though I should wait and have patience.
After 45min I didn't have more patience but the winds had gone down to 18-20Km/h.
So I took my Soul out and adjusted bridle for high wind.
Despite the wind, at the edges of the window I started to practise the Slot Machine and by Jove I got it!
I was also trying to fade but the wind was way too high.
Then the wind started to go down to ~12Km/h so I readjusted bridle and started to try, and try, and try the fade endlessly!
So I got a few of them and I decided to try to record something (wind went down to 8-10Km/h).
Here's the result:
(I apologise for the crooked horizon...)
Surprisingly I managed to get a few things into the video! So I'm really happy!!!!!!!!!
Slots, really low 540's, fades, barrel rolls/backspins, flick flacs... I can't believe it!
Any help in telling me how I can get the axel to fade corrected will be greatly appreciated.
