Mefisto & P15

The following films were shot in very gusty conditions.  I was confident that the P15 would manage the conditions and even added some ballast, the same could not be said for the Mefisto which, to date had only been flown in 10-15mph winds.
Both planes had just come off the work bench following repairs.  Mefisto's wings have had a new carbon wing joiner installed as the previous one snapped in flight.  I also decided to glue and GRP the wings together just to be on the safe side.  The P15's fuse was repaired again following another break and whilst carrying out the above I also repaired the Solange's snapped fuse.  Perhaps it's time to invest in a simulator :-)
