Base Camp Alfa Beta!

 Some decent photos of the day... apologies to all for Martins shit post below...









 






Dave... A veteran of the windy slope brings all the home comforts, Tent, seats, food, goggles... and a duff Alliaj HM glider!










Very nice Dave, he's got the misses stuffed in his bag to provide hot food... it was effin freezing up there!




 Unfortunately not flown today, MKS servo let him down.. pity i was looking forward to it!


Good launch... he kept running/slipping to the bottom of the slope!







A lot of money is lying around in the snow... but they do look seriously good!




Having a moment together... never to late to climb out that closet!






Don't bother asking Rumby to take a photo...
 




First time i got a close look at the Alliaj HM, Not sure about it.. i know there fast, but feels sort of flimsy... the build ain't up to the Rotmilan or the Skorp. However massive ballast capability, Rumby can stuff 2g's in the fuz.







A good day, bitter cold... I FPV my Zephyr up to 2000ft, the Gopro gave up unfortunately, locked out with SOS written on the screen... know how it feels.
