    Thank you Peter! I really wish the GoPros captured more of "Us" flying rather than just me flying. Putting it on the right wing recorded 50% of what was around me. There's only one solution to the problem......more GoPros! hahaha! Great flying with ya Peter, really looking forward to our next gathering. :)

    Nice video of the flying site and festival Leo. What are you using for a GoPro mount?

    Thanks Gregg! I'm using the sticky plastic pads that come with a GoPro and the Gopro Hardware. It's mounted (stuck on) under my winglets.

    Really cool Leo. I love the shot of all three of you skimming the desert floor. Nice job on that landing too. It's going to be interesting shifting to the performance of the Profi coming from a 19M single surface. You come in hot and it doesn't bleed off fast. Woo hoo! Better find a longer runway!

    Hey Scott! Thanks bro. You will love your Profi TL. I believe Larry stated this about a week ago in regards to the Profi TL14.5
    "Great all around wing. Feels big, flies slow and fast very well and very forgiving wing. For a 14.5 it one of the best".
    Not knowing much else, all I can say is Larry is spot on. That's pretty much how it feels. It's got a wide rage of speeds.
    It takes very little input for the wing to follow commands. I fly with my palms resting on the control bar just totally relaxed. Check out the video, right around the 2:30 mark, I take off and bank left as I climbed out. The turn was as if the wing was on rails man....very solid.
    You're right about it not bleeding off speed also. Man, it's an energy retentive monster. It just goes and goes and goes in ground effect.
    Once you get a feel for it, you can start shortening your landings, but it takes a little practice to hunt for the right formula. Of course, then again, having more than just a front drum brake could help. :P

    Scott if you want a 200 hour always hangered Profi TL with electric trim, I have customer who bought a Cheval 12 for his trike who is wanting to sell it right in your area (Virginia) for $5350.00 Its in very good shape. Let me know. Its available now. You can probably drive and pick it up saving shipping cost as well
