Yes, I was "bobbing" along.    :)

Here's a screen shot of the audio volume from that 5 minute flight:

The camera was on a tripod on the ground, so it recorded the ambient wind noise. You can see the bump in audio volume in the last minute of the flight (marked in red). You can also hear it pick up at 4 minutes and 40 seconds into the video. That's when I decided to land.   :D

You'll also notice that I was able to "hover" in place from about 2 minutes and 20 seconds to about 2 minutes and 50 seconds. It's hard to judge the motion of the glider against the sky, but it's much easier to judge the motion by the shadow on the ground. During that period, the shadow is pretty much stationary.

It was an epic day!! Thanks to Joe, Frank, Supervisor Hahn, and LA County Beaches and Harbors!!   :salute:
