We got hammered with 20" plus of snow last week. Weather has been too windy to fly. Had calmed down today to 12G20 so I had to go see what "Sky Turtle" could do. Still bumpy below 1000' but easily manageable with landings and power management. First flight outside my Phase 1 test area.

Hi Tim, my most recent stuff is in helicopters, before that "heavies" and before that a variety of helicopters along with some side work in light GA aircraft.  This by far is the lightest thing I've ever flown, and I need to "kinda" know what it does in the wind.  It moves around...alot!!  I really can't give you any direct comparisons other than it is slower.

Hi David - At least by my standards, impressive winds!  I am curious what you flew before you completed your Cruzer and how  "wind performance" compare between the two.  Regards
