Camden Sunset flight with Brett


Last Saturday I have flown Camden South with Brett. We decided to fly sunset rather then sunrise this time. I was a bit concerned about the thermals late in the evening and the turbulence caused by it.
I arrived to the site at 1500 and it took me an hour to get in the air. I carefully checked the paramotor, wing and chatted with some random people on the parking. Brett arrived at 1530 with fully assembled motor attached to the bicycle rack. Good idea!
I also borrowed Lumix DMC-FT4 from my friend Rick to test it in the air. I took a couple of videos and pictures. Very handy, small camera.
In the air it was very smooth, almost no turbulence at all. Sun was setting, it was warm and we did a couple of kilometers with Brett. I have spend 80 minutes in the air and landed right after the sun disappeared. Such a nice and effortless flight.
Once I have a bit of spare time I will edit GoPro and Lumix videos.
