Having been dragged all over Dunstable Downs last weekend, I fully understand your concerns.
Having bumped into Sailor yesterday, he now *fully* realises my predicament!
The blustery gales had me running/being dragged down the hill, even with a vented B-series, "Bluey".
Whilst Sailor just serenely stood still floating and twirling "Primrose" his gold vented B-series.
Not fun when you have to watch out for rabbit holes too.
It's an exhausting way to learn to fly.
It was a pleasure to meet Sailor, and attempt to fly with him for a while.
It will be better once my purple vented B has arrived and Groz can have Bluey, rather than a standard SLE.
Oh and when I have learnt a lot more.
