Folks outside of Australia might not have heard of Summernats, it's a thing with lots of hotted up cars, burnout smoke, wet t-shirts and comments like "show us your farken TITS". Google it if you dare.

So we welcomed them to Canberra as they passed by the most beautifulLake George —

You should come and fly with us, we have a great crew. Lake George is one of several good sites close to town. We also have friendly eagles, here's some footage from the other night..

I used a Tarot controller: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-mob ... otors.html, not bad for 100 bucks but you have to set up PID settings and the like which I find to be quite a drag.
Are the PID settings a bit of trial and error to get it right for hanggliding or just working through the setup instructions?
