My flight took me Northwest of Hanover KOFP towards Lake Anna and it's airport (7W4). The flight went really well and it was nice to have the freedom to fly where I wanted around the area. This was the first time I'd ever really experienced that "free" feeling people get when flying. Before, I had either been with an instructor, or had been instructed to stay in the pattern (which isn't really all that fun).
The flight went smoothly as a whole except for my GoPro Camera locking up. It froze shortly after I exited the pattern at Hanover; luckily, it recorded my takeoff. I purchased a cable and adapter so that my camera could pick up the aircraft's audio and radio interfaces. The cable I purchased came from The Crazed Pilot, it worked really well! You can hear me speak at the beginning and end of this video:
I'm crossing my fingers that I'll be able to do my first solo cross country before I leave for Alabama next Saturday, which is also about when my instructor is heading off for Air Force training. After he's gone, I'll have to start looking more for a new instructor.
Let hope things work out, thanks for reading,
