Atle Dodge was smart. He took phone calls ,orders and actually shipped parts. These kit manufactures now never answer their phones and never get parts out in a timely matter. Nobody to blame but themselves.
On a sunny day it is easy to see the drifts because they cast a shadow. Cloudy days and full snow cover you have to be real careful. If there is no reference I like to carry power on landing and slowly descend until I touch down then cut power. I have also thrown my coat out the door and came back around and try to touch down right next to my coat.
That nice fluffy snow we had last night that I text flew my Bandit in after the ski installation is now blowing toward Iowa. 30 mph winds today. Blizzard conditions again. Temp is 1 degrees, wind still blowing like hell!
