Cold with the wind right in the face, not pleasant. Got to try Gary's Skookum bailout, which I disliked intensely. It seemed to do the job OK, but in a very inefficient way.
Enter the hard deck slowly inverted and it does a violent piro flip to get tail-in upright with a loss of height, and then seems to add collective slowly, which means to comes pretty close to the ground, totally unnerving. At least I have a better understanding of how these things work, as I may still pay for the VBar rescue at some point.
Dropped in at LMAC on the way home and had a flight between the fixed wingers. Too busy, so I went to LARCS for a flight. No-one else there, and some traveller kids with dogs hanging around, so just one flight before going home for lunch.
