Flight with my always reliable Mavic Pro (V1). Christmas eve  on 1’703 m ASL in Switzerland on the Monte Generoso (Canton of Ticino), near by the border with Italy. The picture was taken in the South direction and under the fog about 60 kilometers away is Milan (Italy). On the ridge you can see the ‘Fiore di Pietra‘ restaurant (Stone Flower) by architect Mario Botta. I have already posted photos of it in the past, here is the link.
We toasted to Christmas and to the New Year with a Prosecco, an hot Tea and a good Panettone. NICE genuine mountains people!
A couple of photos with my drone Mavic Pro (1) over the “Weg der Schweiz” (Switzerland’s way) in the Seelisberg Region (central Switzerland) and the awesome village of “Bauen”. The Lake “Vierwaldstättersee” (Lake of the Four Cantons) and the Grütli meadow, historical and almost mythical location for the foundation of Switzerland (1291) and on July 1940 General Henry Guisan used this locations for his speech, the “Rütlirapport”, to the commanding officers of the Swiss Armed Forces in which he ordered the “Reduit”-strategy and his aim never to surrender if invaded.
Very nice days at the 11th and 12th of July with our gliders in the Region of Leysin, Swiss Alps. We flow over 2000m ASL (Location Berneuse) the new Ahi, Libelle, Taser, Raven and the nice Supra Expert EL 3.6m. Video of SUPRA below, Videos of Ahi (HERE) and DLG’s LIBELLE, RAVEN and TASER CLICK HERE!
Nice Christmas eve flying with my new DJI, Mavic Mini on Tuesday the 24. December 2019 over the Monte Generoso (1700A ASL), South of Switzerland. Awesome weather, about 10 degrees. Sunset with the “Stone Flower” of architect Mario Botta from Mendrisio.
First time for team flying4nature on the Hahnenmoos 1950 ASL (Switzerland – Berner Alpen). It’s the “RC glider paradise” of Switzerland (detailed description of this location on http://www.slople.com/). We have found a awesome location to fly and a lot of very kind pilots, who shared the own years of experiences with us! Very nice and clean hotel to have meal and to sleep (http://www.hahnenmoos.ch/). Video of the fly session below. More pictures on our FLICKR Channel.
Spring flight with light thermal lift in the countrysite of Switzerland, region of Lucern. The plane is my (old – 10y) BETA 2-3m from “topmodels.cz”. Wood wing and fuselage in GFK, look at the plane review HERE and at the fly location HERE.
Il Fiore di Pietra (The Stone Flower) – on the Monte Generoso 1700m ASL (Switzerland) – is an octagonal creation of the swiss star architect Mario Botta. The building has finished at the start of 2017 and can be reach with a 9km long rack railway or by foot. Pictures have been taken with Mavic Pro DJI on the 24th December 2017.
Nice Autumn days for flying and for outdoor activities in Switzerland. Not only for our gliders and drones, but also for a big flying cat (HB-QGU)! It visited in low flight the region of Wauwilermoos-Egolzwil (Lucern-Switzerland), saturday the 14th October. MIAOW!
Unglaublich aber wahr! Am 29. Dezember 2015 ohne Schnee auf 1500 M.ü.M. in den Schweizer Alpen (location village of Jeizinen). Ein sehr seltenes Ereignis. Ich konnte mit leichtem und warmem Aufwind am Hang fast wie in Frühling mit meinem langjährigen mich auf Reisen begleitenden treuen Segler (Phoenix 2000, 2.om) slope fliegen. Just fun!
