Checking out next flying site.


We were asked to be a part of a ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of the Iridescent Learning center in the Bronx. Below is a test flight in 20 mph gusts with lots of turbulence.

The Lonely Pilot

Big parking lot, Bronx, lots of wind and rotor

The violence in the air is much like a wave collapsing on the beach. Very random forces push the airplane left, right and down with very little up. The towel has a 1-1 thrust to weight ratio and it is struggling with gusts that are more than its maximum flight speed. Video of it flying below, and all I wanted was the smoothest
of circles as it gets knocked around.
