Thermal Flying

Today I took my ParkZone Radian out for a flight at the Sacramento Valley Soaring Society's field in the Yolo Grasslands Regional Park. Not very exciting, I've done it before. But today, I stuck a 808 #16 Keychain Camera under the left wing. Luckily, I did so on my first flight of the day, since that was the only time I got any thermals to speak of, but in that flight with only 30 seconds of power I got about 15 minutes of flight before I had to start the motor again. The plane has a competition altitude limiter installed that will cut the throttle at either 30 seconds or 200m altitude, whichever comes first (the notes you hear at about the 15 minute mark are the limiter re-arming when I pulled the throttle down).
