Re: [mchamp] Angle Flying/Atmonauti

In reply to:
Anyone have any advice as to how to progress to this style?

Hey buddy,

The Key to Atmo is to find a leader that is proficient in maintaining an angle.

The angle should not be too steep nor too flat.

There is a range of angles that fall within that definition and it doesn't really matter exactly what angle it is.

It is very similar to a tracking jump but a lot more relaxed and not as flat and stiff.

Flying head level is important to avoid burbleing each other and to avoid a deep explanation of that, I have linked the following picture and you will find more detail on the discipline.

http://atmonauti.com/main.html (just realised it is a HTML that will only take you to the intro, so click in and go to the 'Atmonauti?' page.

Do not listen to the (iminent) childish remarks from nay sayers. They are not worth the energy.

They will say it is like flocking etc etc, but flocking is a 'sliding' formation that moves from (relative) wind deflection, Atmo is quite different as it uses lift much like traking but in a more relaxed manner allowing you to present feet and arms for docking.

Most of all it is fun and anybody that tries to take that fun away from you is a wanker.

Just have fun doing what you want to do...
