High Hopes in the French Alps

Painted Bangers

Painted Banger!

On our way to Plaine Joux this morning there were already some warning clouds forming, so the day was destined to be another opportune window day. How long it was going to remain open for was looking like just the morning.

We did some training up on the back slope.  Marcia has a good keen run and I had no problem in wanting to launch her. So she had her first flight today.

She managed one good flight  before the weather set in. When she’d landed I’d had enugh time to drive back down so she must have gotten in at least 15-20 minutes flying. Unfortuantely, there was a little misunderstanding in that the radio was a little static but we managed to sort all of that out, and all is well.

The rest of the afternoon, Dennis did some much needed reverse launch, practice with her down at Batistock, as the rain held off and there was enough of a constant breeze to get some inflations in.

There were some ‘fun bangers!’ parked along the road today… advertising a type of Demolition Derby event. Sound’s like fun.
