In Topic: How long before it stays airborne?

--Pete - I see the sense in swapping top / bottom as opposed to left / right if you were to swap them over. Is line stretch a real issue these days? I'm guessing not by the comments posted here ... On the subject of swapping bottom lines over & seeing how you get on did you ever try, as a kid, riding your bike with your hands on the opposite grips? I did. Kerb stones in this area are cut granite. I know that from having my face planted on one.

I'm going to do as you do Wayne & colour code each corner - it'll take some of the confusion out of setting up.

Plod / Baloo - where do I find out about the better flying days please?

--Pete - I'd love to colour code all my lines to make sure that I get the same one at the same corner each time - I just had a recollection of someone on one of the tutorials saying that it was a good idea to swap the left & right lines occasionally. I didn't mean the uppers & lowers, just left & right. I must have misunderstood it I guess. I wouldn't have believed it would make much difference unless you only fly on one side of the wind envelope or use really cheap lines?

Hi Plod38 - a guy on here - pudsli, has experience of the Ainsdale beach & like everyone on here is very helpful as I'm guessing you've already found. I may have a nice beach to fly on but you seem to have the funds - 3 revs already?! What is a "Better flying day" by the way?

--Pete - you're a good man to have around in a pub quiz. I had no idea the song had such a long history - I'll check out the earlier recordings if I can find some.

I'm going to colour up the handles Wayne but I seem to recall reading or hearing somewhere that it was a good idea to swap the lines around so that they stretch evenly? Have I misunderstood?

It is - well spotted - it contains the line I mentioned earlier about bad luck ...

We just lost BST (Daylight savings) as well - really knackers the end of the day flying after work. When you drive to work in the dark & home again in the dark it makes your flying time window quite small doesn't it? We don't get that show Wayne - it must have ben "Born under a bad sign" that I'm thinking of.
I'm chomping at the bit to get out & give it another go but it's weekends only now ... thanks all for the encouragement.
