    Paul Hamilton commented on Damien B's picture.
    The trike shadow must be from the trike shown (not the shooter Damien) but it is higher than the trike itself so the slight tilt provides an interesting composition since the sun can not be lower than the horizon. The shadow from the rocks tells ...

    Yes Jeff I filmed the whole thing with two gopros to tell the story and trying to get to editing it. This picture is from the wing mounted camera. We flew from Mt Whitney out to Death Valley for a Top to Bottom.

    Jeff, It was one of those lucky days with only about 10 out of the north blowing parallel with the ridge line once we got above about 12,000. Calm below. Not much.

    Yes Kevin I would take a 912 carb to 14,500. I took my 503 rotax two stroke cosmos trike to 17,000 and it was running a little rich/rough. Have not looked or seen any rotax altitude limits except power loss with altitude.

    Paul, would you consider the same flight to around 14500 ft if you had a carbureted 912 engine ? I would think it would be up to Rotax to know and document the limit of altitude operation of their engine ?

    Kevin, Yes heated clothing for safety/comfort and Yes oxygen is required per 91.211. I am not sure what Larry put for Revo ceiling, but we were still able to climb about 200 to 300 FPM at 14,500 which is much better than I thought we would be able ...

    Paul would you happen to know if anyone is selling thous battery operated bar mitts? I ordered the ones from north wing but unfortunatly there supplier has disapeared. I have electric leather gloves but they dont work that well. I have severe raynaulds in my hands from chain saw carving for 20 years and i would like to fly more in the winter. Cant find battery heated bar mits anywhere?

    Andy,
    I use a whole bunch of stuff but the workhorse basic camera is a Nikon D40x. Any camera will do. Nikon Cannon etc... but the lens is a Sigma 10-20mm which costs way more than the basic camera and lens.

    Wow Paul...Getting a good work out there huh? 7 hours a day? Are you beat up or is the air pretty good there? Have you flown the topless/strutted Airborne yet? Was good seeing and visiting with you again at SNF.
