Valley Springs Fly in Apr 2016

0:36 – Motor hiccups, should have aborted
0:46 – Power drops to 50% (can’t climb at 50%), pucker maneuver between trees 🙁
0:59 – Lift feet to avoid branch 🙂
1:10 – Full power restores
1:42 – Finally high enough to feel good about backing off full power, running fine now
1:50 – Wrestling with cell phone and modified arm band for my GPS app
3:25 – How I felt about my PPG at that moment 🙂

Changed the spark plug, cleaned the carburetor (again) and a few cable adjustments….2 more flights with no issues after that.

Let’s hope we dont have to do that again.
