Comment

Wave was forecast by Skysight to be confined between Reno and Minden so chose the Phoenix for this flight. Slammed in the rotor so hard I hurt my neck because the belts weren't tight enough. Hard to get established in the wave, but once in it, pretty easy back and forth. Nice clouds, nice visuals. Had to restart the engine twice. Changed OLC beginning of soaring time accordingly.
Flying the low performance Phoenix (29/1 L/D) in wave is a huge challenge compared to the JS1.
