Good turnout of BERG members on Sunday

Sunday morning early the weather did no look promising at all with some heavy clouds hanging around. But I haven’t flown the week before and I needed to get my fix for the next week and so I set out for the field anyway. I took the winch with just in case some other members needed it but my intention was to fly the E-Tsotsi only.

I arrived at the field at around 10.00 AM and found that Craig , Michael and Lionel were already hard at work practicing for the upcoming F3B world championship later this year.

The heavy cloud cover suddenly cleared up and we had very good thermal conditions for the rest of the day with Tony doing a 35 min flight with his normal Tsotsi and myself , 2 flights with the E-Tsotsi of more than 1 hour each.
