We took off around 10.30 am got up to 2200 m and started out on course, into the blue towards Wilder Kaiser. Soon it was clear that the day was too slow for a really big FAI triangle, and the wind was still too strong, but who cares - it is great to fly with friends and go sightseeing around the steep cliffs of Wilder Kaiser.
Pinzgau wasn´t easy either, it got quite turbulent with a southwester high up and the easterly valley breeze. But with the small RX3, it was fun to even climb in very broken, tight thermals.
After Hundstein, I was rewarded for all the work - base got up to 3400 and I could fly along Steinernes Meer (petrified sea), and it really looks like waves out of stone! And due to the sw wind, it was really easy and quite calm to climb above those majestic rocks. Normally it is really bumpy there.
The best part is when you make it home. I landed at Wessner Hof where Oli Barthelmes held a take off and landing training, in the evening they made a barbecue. A six hour flight, 179km, not the furthest, but one of the nicest! Here the flight in the DHV-XC.
I will be back from work on Wednesday, so if you like to testfly the Moyes Litespeed RX3 from Thursday onwards, please contact me!
