Frank and I had a fun day of flying at Dockweiler yesterday.

Frank brought his Condor 225 and his brand new Alpha 235:.

We both paid our parking fees to support Beaches and Harbors. :thumbup:

We set up Frank's new Wills Wing Alpha 235 first:

Unfortunately I didn't get any photos or video of flying Frank's swing seat.

We "sealed the deal" on Frank's gift of the Condor with a fist bump:

Here's screen shot from the video when we had re-trimmed all the way back to where it began - the factory trim.

Here is my Dropbox of the final video of the re-trimming process. Funny!
