Hello :hi:

TRACKER MAP
Karula_February17-February18
https://drive.google.com/open?id=18x9Cc ... sp=sharing

Karula flew back to the Tal Al-Mantah area.
Today at 11:17:00 (UTC+2), the battery level was 83% (4047 mV)
Yesterday afternoon at 15:17:51 (UTC+2), it reached 89%. :thumbs:

This route is 16,5 km long.

Yesterday around 14:47, Karula flew near the Tirzah Reservoir on the West Bank.

"Wadi al-Far'a (Arabic name) or Nahal Tirza (Hebrew name) is a stream in the northern West Bank that empties into the Jordan River south of Damia Bridge (Arabic: Jisr Damiya). It is the largest stream in the West Bank.[1] Wadi al-Far'a is located in the rugged area of the West Bank and cuts east through the Jordan Valley, passing through the Palestinian village of Wadi al-Far'a. The Tirzah Reservoir is used to collect the floodwater of Wadi al-Far'a before it flows into the Jordan River."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wadi_al-Far%27a_(river)

Image

"Tirza Reservoir site is a very important water resource for the Jordan Valley. It begins as an artificial lake that recovers rainwater, floods and a few salty springs in Nahal Tirza channel for farmers of the region. This water plant was established over the years: 1995-2001."

Yes, Sova, I think that this is correct.
At least this is what the tracker map says.

Our previous info on February 20 stopped around 11:15.
Karula flew northwards in the afternoon.

I understand. We have to think about whether we might make the tacker map a little later. Karula flies more now.
I won't fix the cards now (for half a day - February 20th)
