How long before it stays airborne?

27 September 2010 - 11:03 AM

I'm new to this forum so apologies if I'm repeating well trodden ground.

Are there any members on here from Cumbria in the UK?

After 4 weeks of waiting for the "right day" I flew my birthday present on Sunday. To say it was difficult would be an understatement. I'm not bad with a 2 lines but found the rev very difficult to keep in the air. The winds were light & gusty but it felt like I was doing brain surgery trying to coordinate everything. How long did it take you guys before you weren't embarassing yourselves (or am I just not cut out for this?). It felt a lot like a first driving lesson.

It's a new rev 1.5 SLE - not the SUL.

Any advice gratefully received ...
