A long day at the BMFA Buckminster flying site today, my 1st ever session there.

It's a fantastic flying area with the sun directly to the back of you as you fly. The flight-line was busy, roughly equal numbers of planks and egg whisks, and socially it seemed to work perfectly with nonstop flying as we took it in turns, and some good chat as well.

I'm too tired to waffle on 😃 and I only had about 3 to 4 hours sleep last night, but even so I enjoyed flying a lot and was still able to concentrate pretty good. My only disappointment was my attempt at flipping circuits which I can do on the sim, and a bit at the field, but once flying into wind I couldn't keep it going, kind of not enough power it felt like, but also if the timing was just even slightly out whilst trying it into wind, it ballooned upwards very easily.

Awesome! What a fantastic day.

I arrived expecting to fly in the usual spot but there were activities about to start involving a full-size heli, so perhaps heli rides or something like that.

After a good old chat in the café we made our way down the far end to fly, thankfully the sun (directly in front of us) was nicely obscured all morning. The cloud thinned at around midday and for the following two hours the sun was about half visible, nothing sunglasses didn't fix though.

The sky was quite busy with several gliders taking off and a few passing planes, but we had 4 spotters constantly looking out for traffic, so absolutely no problem whatsoever, and really nice to see them too as they flew by in front of us.

The Goblin 570 had its 2nd ever flight, or 1st really considering its only ever time in the air before now was just myself buddying Clare for a practice hovering around flight. Anyway it flies superb and I enjoyed it every bit as much as the Logo, but I didn't want to push my luck as I was feeling adventurous, so after only 1 flight I just left it standing pretty in the pits.
