ON THE SANDBARS
Dan Nelson and Dave Jones had fun landing on
the sandbars in the South Thompson River, even taking the time to make some
Paul Parsons sent me the link for this one. Would
I love to have one, ultralight size? You bet!

228. Flying from Salmon Arm to Kamloops, April 26, 2019
After about 40 minutes in Salmon Arm airport I took off
towards the Kamloops. I wanted to follow more scenic route by Shuswap
Lake and South Thompson River. I thought that I have it well imprinted
in my head, which was not the case. After about 10 min flight I realized
that I am flying south instead of north. This is the 2nd time when this
happened at the same place.
I was too far from my original route, so I took shortcut
across the mountain again. I wanted to avoid this route, because I did
not like the turbulence there. The turbulence was waiting for me.
I took side trip to Chase village on the shore of Little
Shuswap Lake. Of course taking pictures and my 3 GoPro cameras were
recording my journey. The rest of the flight was relaxing above the
magnificent nature in the South Thompson River between South and North
227. Flying to Salmon Arm, April 26, 2019
This video is from my first leg of two-hour flight to
Salmon Arm (SA) airport and back. I decided to fly almost straight line
between Kamloops and SA over the mountain. The flight was almost
uneventful until 20 km from SA when crossing mountain ridges and
multidirectional valleys, which is not very good combination. I received
several good kicks from thermals and changing wind directions. I landed
in SA, changed camera batteries, talked to several pilots interested in
my bird. I wanted to go back home ASAP, before the heat of the day would
make my flight less enjoyable.
226. Flying to Tobiano and Savona to Test Wing GoPro on
3x Stabilizer, April 14, 2019
I was waiting a long time to test again the Gimbal
Stabilizer FY-WG X3 with GoPro wing camera. I
tested this mechanical
stabilizer in 2016 with disappointing results, when batteries quit
in just 12 minutes at -3C. It was a bit better this time with 30 min
running time at +3C, but still very short of spec 3 to 4 hours. I will
try again in summer. The result is very good and much more interesting
relation between the trike and background.
