I was lucky enough to get to be the Test Pilot on this beast.

Test flight of a Sky hero octocopter (6 min 56 sec)


Once I had the Tech turn off the forward tracking it flew nice. I also had to turn the GPS off as it made the machine bobble once in a while.

Slope Soaring today with my 2 meter glider, and my prop got stuck in my canopy on a start up and I ended up in a tree.
I got lucky and had zero damage.

For gods sake don't do anything stupid with your machines. Keep everything out of the NEWS right now, it is vital to our hobby to fly with the upmost respect around the public. It seemes to me they are looking for a reason any reason to shut this whole thing down. Untill it simmers down "lay low" and let thing settel down a bit. We dont need any hot dogers or show off's right now. Try to teach folks around you that it is not a invasion to them, but a step in technoligy to better them. I'm just saying...

I just saw on CNN that the feds are now outlawing the use of "Drones" in all national parks in the USA. What next.
