Day 3, Deano in Brazil… The first taste of competition
After waiting for the rain to subside all day yesterday and this morning, we were finally granted a window of opportunity to get out and practice some tasks before lunch, despite quite strong and changeable winds.
Most of the time the wind was drawing offshore so was not the best, with some rotor coming off the back of highrise buildings; but flyable none the less.
I had a trial ‘head-to-head’
run with Grzegorz Krzyzanowski
from Poland around the pylons this afternoon which was fun and exciting, both swapping the lead and having some overtaking maneuvers.
Training is now over and much shorter than anticipated but there’s not much that can be done when the weather doesn’t play ball. At least the forecast is favourable for the weekend event.
