How does Janyce appear from another glider?

Here's your answer to that and the question of, How does Chippy appear from a landing hang glider while discus launching his R/C sailplane? But wait--there's more. Also addressed is the question of how radically can a T2C 144 be mushed in order to avoid an otherwise certain overshoot?

Nice video and nice flight. I'm not crazy about the mushed approach. Even a T2C (or a Litespeed) can get a crap L/D if you rock upright and pull in to about 40 mph.

Yes I agree. I'd have been fine if I just continued diving for the ground on my base leg turn and just skimmed for 200 yards. I was trying to keep my glider positioned to record Chippy's discus-launch R/C glider in frame and also not plow into him.

Full mush landings are at the extreme end of acceptable technique and I do not recommend them to others. I do practice the technique at safe altitude to insure I know in advance what the control limits of all my gliders are.

I would never attempt this on a Falcon as it will drop a wing and turn downwind but then it isn't even needed.

Here's an example...

Thanks Jonathan, Was really glad to see my landing at 3:48. I thoroughly apologize to anyone who had to listen to me, begging for help, on top of the HAM MEN talking about steak for 45 minutes.

Maybe that's why I was begging for help?

(I wish!)

Sorry, guys--won't happen EVER again!

I especially like the music. A choir of strings is the second most beautiful sound in the world.

Thanks Jay. I am kind of partial to the singing of wind in my wires too.

Perhaps we should find another frequency for the club that's not in frequent use by hams?

Years ago, Barton noted that 147.510 is quiet and legal too. But nobody wanted to be bothered changing.

Alternately we can have everyone use tone squelch and that way we won't be able to hear our buddy unless someone is keying up with tone squelch then everything will come through until no one is keyed.

The list of legal frequencies is here: http://www.aresav.org/docs/tasma_bandplan.pdf
