On the dynon you can just press the #2 and #7 buttons simultaneously and it will load a .jpeg screen shot onto the jump drive.

I went out to play with the wind today.
On the ground -10˚C wind 280/10



I climbed to 11500',the OAT was -22˚C the air was smooth and I found nice winds to play with.
On this picture I am actually flying backward or sideways at 7 knots. The aircraft was actually heading 330˚ and tracking 176˚!



With the wind on my back this is what I got with WOT.



Total performance and fun!

Allright Michel, a 180HP RV6 is a tough opponent for a RV9
Will you be based in Lachute?
Bruno, the only time I go backward 7 kts on the A330 is during the pushback
Bye

That was a really old airplane, taken a few years ago. That airplane is on a stick some where now. But yeah, 1986 at it's finest.
