    I'm new here as it says, just got a P4 a few days ago, what an adventure I'm now on. Being a 'long in the tooth' all this 'tech' is mind blowing. Sure to need help somewhere.

    I've had a bit of a look at some of the posts on this forum, very helpful for newbys!

    I'm a retired Hand Glider Pilot, I've also flown powered aircraft and gliders, I miss it like hell, especially the Hang Gliding (as I was with it from VERY early on until about 2 years ago when I was flying A.I R. Gliders, brill).

    Here's a video I did a few years ago.



    Hope you enjoy it, let me know if you wish.

    Welcome to the forum, from an old Weed Hopper pilot. You'll find the Phantom is a great fix for your flying habit.

    Excellent! Does that thing have an RTH function in case you get lost? ;)
