That's the best video I've seen yet covering those three basic details. My learning was cut short when we entered the January freeze-up. I can't wait to get out and test mast placement some more. On my last breakthrough session, I had way more control of my first flights with the mast all the way back requiring very light front foot pressure to control the lift. Now I have a little better understanding of what is happening.

It's 2 degrees Fahrenheit outside this morning. Looking forward to a warm February so I can get back at it.
