Flying at a Post Card !

#1
Yesterday I left work at 15:00 and went to fly at one of Rio de Janeiro Post cards; Pepino Beach; where the paragliders and Delta Wings lands.

the condition was awesome (for me): steady 25 km/h wind from E (left to right from pictures, check the wind sock).

Lots of tourists and general population stop by to watch me doing some mild aerobatics at the sunset; after the first 20 min i swapped batteries and turned the LED on !! so nice !!

I really need to get it on video soon .....


behind me was a soft and well trimmed grass the guys use as landing strip and so did I.
