Want to ride along on a competition flight. This was a
four target run on a very challenging day. Many pilots did
not score on all four and some pilots only scored on one or two.
My Niece "Hailey" and I managed to score on all four. The
second drop was made from 1800 feet in the air and we dropped
the marker about a quarter mile before the target. The
scoring area is a 300 foot circle. Then our landing was on
a patch of grass about the size of your driveway.. Pretty
