California’s new state record- 172 miles! Read the full report here

I just landed somewhere in the Nevada desert, after completing my longest flight yet. I am so psyched beyond belief, this was a huge goal for me.

Launched Walts around nine this morning, and took it up north. I flew up the Sierra for about 90 miles towards Mammoth, before being blown off and out into the Glass Mountains. Once these ran out, I followed the cloud street to where it ended over Bodie. Then It was difficult, hit or miss flying, all the way to Yerington, NV!

I will get the track log posted soon, with a trip report.
