Dynamic Soaring of Gradients or?

    Dynamic Soaring of Gradients or? See my Video Exp



    http://www.icarusengineering.com/Dynamic-Soaring-and-SE.htm

    I am trying to validate that the aircraft is indeed flying in 2 different air masses instead of just one rising air mass of a normal thermal. Using 2 types of gradients would define dynamic soaring apart from thermal soaring.

    I have posted a flight video of a personal aircraft in this experiment.

    I am hoping its dynamic soaring.
