Flying session with the Vampire F3F

Today, I went to the col des limouches. Conditions were perfect for the flight, but too much for a safe an peaceful landing. I flew the vampire for 1 hour before to start to land. the landing zone is very small, and near the edge. This is the only place to land on this slope, because behind the eadge of the cliff, this is a suicide. I finally managed a good landing without any damage.
Here is the video of the flying session. 30 Km/h of wind. 900g of ballast in the plane.

The Vampire confirmed to be a fast plane with plenty of grip in the turn. I think again that the ballast strategy is very important with this plane to obtain the best compromise between straight speed and tight turns. The plane seems to not like to be overballasted.

  1. I just got one of these for F3F and F3B. Would you mind sharing your settings now that you have been flying it for a little while?
