025. Drops.

It kills me that in a sport costing thousands, the most important piece of equipment is this string, which costs pennies.

yes its funny to know only the simple things show you that you are flying straight

I was surprised to find that you really do "fly by the seat of your pants" but when you're turning (which is a lot in a sailplane) the piece of string is the most feedback you have (except for maybe the beeping).

Good comment .... I feel like I've learned something today already (awake for 15 mins, so there's still time for more lol)

Mark, thanks for the comment.

I learn a lot by commenting on other people's pictures.

I've uploaded two new ones so you don't have to look at this old stuff!
