Grant: I did have a driver, but no radio contact after the 1st 15 minutes. Does that count? I kept going too, until I thought that if I continued I'd end up in a canyon under canopy like you. _________________ Fly High; Fly Far; Fly Safe -- George ----------------------------------------------------...

[ Reason 3. Option C strengthens our position with regard to making our flight park legal. Our club's board of directors is acutely aware that our flying activities require a "conditional use permit" from the city of L.A.

track log doesn't show a tuck, tumble or anything unusual except maybe he was flying a bit slow (slightly above stall). But at the time we were all in search mode.
