First DS flight

Picked up my new (to me) Vision Mark IV 17 from inspection, and took it for one very short flight. The wind was predominantly north at our west-facing site, so I just carried it 100 feet up the training hill and waited for one suitable cycle to launch. Felt slightly different from my Falcon, but not bad, and I timed the flare just fine. Next time I’ll take it up to the higher launches, and if I get a bunch of good flights in, then I’ll be okay with taking it to the mountain sites.

flights: 1, airtime: 0:01
