My latest video taken while at the Central Florida FPV Meet. Great turnout and a ton of fun. Enjoy the video. All footage is from my 1900mm Skywalker and my FPV converted Stryker. Stryker has a Gopro2 mounted forwards and a #16 keychain pointed aft.

This may only be of interest for people who actually live in my neighborhood. The flying isn't bad though. And I'm quite proud of the very short landing I made at the end.

Playing around with some post editing effects. Flight is north of Orlando in Sorrento, FL.

Anyone interested in doing this with Sony Vegas 10 can see my thread on the subject here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1748519

So... my previous blog showed the damage that FedEx and their goons did to my new Extra 300. This blog shows the fix. I opted not to go the red-tape route and try and get FedEx to reimburse me on the odd chance they would want to see the damage someday. I figured I can fix it and fly it easier than I can look at a fixable plane on my shelf and not touch it. Like a kid with a new toy that he can't play with. Unbearable to say the least. It would be too much for me.

So I fixed it... not a "perfect out of the box" job but it's certainly stand off scale. Now lets see how she flies.
