    Hi,
    Just got my Vision last Friday and having a ball. I was flying in Bradenton Beach today and neglected to notice the sea fog. Well actually I saw it but was more intent on flying and didn't pay any attention to it. Oops. At 500 or so feet I could no longer see the Vision. Crap! I saw it on radar, but couldn't see it. All is well, but now I'll pay more attention to the weather.

    In hindsight, I wish I had gone up to try to get above the fog!

    Loving this Vision! http://youtu.be/R-XqFNqPMDI

    You never know where the fog ends but it would have been cool if you could have popped up above the layer. We get low fog here a few times a year. I'm waiting for it - gottsa do one of those.

    BTW: Congrats on the new Vision. I don't have one but I certainly like them.
