Local TV company made a small movie in the beginning of August at our airfield. It is mostly about Valentin Ustinov who designs gyros here (somebody probably saw his 'Adelle' tractor AG-gyro, I posted photos and vids.
He is gentleman with moustache talking much (it is about his gyro design experience).
And there are some shots of our gyros flying around.
Some shots show low visibility - this was during hard summer fires around Moscow.

Very nice. I wish I understood any of it. Are you also visible there? In the Calidus?

Kai,
From the time Alex had test flown Calidus he doesn’t fly anything else ;)
:wave: Alex, and thanks for the video.
Ps I shouldn't hold the control stick so hard but (maybe I am wrong)

Each time I see new photo or video with my hand on stick I wonder why it looks like it is kept hard :confused: since I specially paid attention to keep hands and feet relaxed from the very first hours of flying. And check myself in each flight. Don't know why they look so :confused: OK, next time I'll make video with hands free at all ;)
Calidus with it's lateral trim makes this easy at any airspeed.

Alex,

I enjoyed the video very much. It is always good to see how large our sport is growing!
