Aircraft: EuroFOX - G-UFOX
Not wonderful conditions today; it's a bit blowy, but safe. On my own and no real plan - just to go for a bimble. I am also testing my new camera mount (recently printed) that attaches my cheap video camera to the jury struts.
The wind is from the east, so I take off on runway 08 and then turn to the north. Going round the Odiham MATZ stub, I decide to turn back east to the north of Basinggrad. Then I form the idea of flying over to Sandhurst and over my house - haven't been over here for a while. It's a little bumpy, but I don't want to go high and fight extra headwind. I go past Stratfield Saye House which looks nice.
On to Sandhurst - it all looks a bit different from up here, but I spot Wellington College, then Eagle House School and then my road. Passing along the road, I find my house at the end - looks small. Continuing I can see the Royal Military Academy further on, so decide to have a look at that - it's actually quite impressive. Then back for another turn past the house and a troll around the locality.
When I'm done, I then head back west with a somewhat higher groundspeed with the tailwind. Despite the air being bumpy, I have a nice landing on 08.
