Back in the air again

This morning must count as insanely windy, but I still managed three flights with the RS352. Flight 3 was interesting as I lost power on the landing approach and came down short. The previous landing was even more interesting as for some strange reason I landed the wrong way, going almost with the wind.

Other than that, I was joined by some people with a Parrot AR Drone what just went increasingly further downwind and didn’t look like it or the pilot could handle the conditions. There was also a Blade Quadcopter that ended up downwind and caused damage, so not a good day for multi-rotors.

I recorded a video of the RS352 sitting on the ground getting buffeted by the wind just to prove how bad it really was. It’s up on vimeo at the following link: http://vimeo.com/106756720
