Fly April 5, Sunday

Postby basicbill » Sat, Apr 04 2015, 06:36 PM

At least two of us, Mark and myself plan on being out at Busse Woods for a while tomorrow afternoon. Probably from about 12:30 until 4.

All welcome, especially new flyers.

Celebrate Easter in the air.

Mark and I had the vented kites out in the gusty winds at Busse Woods.

With only the three of us, Steve had time to introduce a few group flying maneuvers to me that I hadn't flown yet.

Okay, seeing that really relaxation in a chair while flying, I need to learn that technique.

Hey, FlyingJim, welcome to the IKE forum if I haven't already.

That style of flying is quite easy to learn, simply sit down -- doesn't even have to be a chair. :up:

It helps if there's lots of wind . . . .

Yes. In fact the three of us were sitting in the grass next to each other for a while flying the group stuff.

Now that was fun.
