Clip Les Království has been published on server YouTube on 25th March 2011. Following series of clips from Spain coast Costa del Azahar it is first next clip from Czech Republic. Photos from this flight were published on Panoramio already during October 2010.
Dam Les Království is unique work of Czech technical architecture. Bulding of this dam has begun just one hundred years ago, in year 1910. Even one centrury later, it still remains a confirmation of craftsmanship of our predecessors an concerning its fairy-tail outlook as weel as exceptional example of hydroengineering installation even in the Europeanwide base. It is located in the narrow valley of river Elbe about 5km westward from Dvůr Králové nad Labem near village Bílá Třemešná. This dam was first one build in Czech countries and its dam crest 218m long is unique stone-cutter work done from white sandstone. One hundred years later it is perfectly integrated into natural enviroment like ideal object for angling and evening walks. Many interesting facts about its history and construction can be find in this document of Hugo Habrman in videoarchiv of Czech television.
Clip has been taken from Multiplex EasyGlider using camcorder GoPro HD. It has been cut from only one 32 minutes long flight flown during sunny and windless autumn morning 19th September 2010. Short time after launch videogoogle batteries were getting weak and therefore almost whole flight, inclusive slalom between towers on the top of the dam wall, above deep Eble valley below crest as well as only few meters above water level has been performed only under direct visual supervision between RC-pilot and model itself. I had to change my position during the flight. Plane has been launched from southern bank of the valley, flight has been controlled mostly from the top of the crest and plane landed close to the slide-valve tower on the northern training wall.
