With a 60% chance of rain the storms hit later in the day along with the rain after the event was over. Had some hefty winds at times.. Filmed a couple rc drift cars with the simplecopter tilt v-tail and a gopro while the wind was bouncing it around a bit it was still fun.

Digging the flip 1.5 mwc board in the hexacopter. Flew well considering it was windy and only needs a minor tweak or two on the board now. Looking forward to putting a gopro gimbal on it eventually.

Was nice to go fly,took a break from flying for a while but didnt totally forget how to fly atleast. Local fields are nice but always seemed to prefer farmland for flying. Shot some video from a quad and flew some acro with the tilt.

Really like the simplecopter tilt v-tail and tricopter 2.0. Flew both of them and a scratch build quad i built to try the flip 1.5 multi wii board in. After flying multirotors for a little over a year now and the kk 2.0 boards almost from the start im glad i tryed the flip 1.5 finally. Decided to retire the scratch build quad and cannibalize it for gear to get my hexacopter back in the air. The hexacopter i built last year to test some things and plan to get it flying again on a budget with a low cost gimbal using gear i already have and see how it performs.

Been flying kk 2 boards since i started last year and finally tried out a multi wii board and so far it rocks. Its the ready to fly quads flip 1.5 board with 2.3 fw and its very stable,once i upped the rates a little more for acro it got even better. Tried the auto level on it and it seems to work really well and i'll probably use that more in a hexacopter with a gopro eventually. For now i built a scratch build quad to try it out in and only have a couple of flights but its dialed in pretty well for me and the learning curve for set up hasn't been to bad other than i used the wrong GUI to check the settings before flying it when i first set it up... 2.3 fw use the 2.3 GUI or throttle set up will be wacky but that was my mistake. After correcting that and checking the radio and set up in the GUI i powered it up and it flew really nice inside but the settings were a bit tame for me but it wasn't difficult to fine tune it for how i like to fly.

ACRO flight in the yard after i upped the rates a little.

The tilt v-tail is really nice,Its a acro monster and has tons of room on the frame for cams and other gear. Link to the review at BigSquidRc .

Relaxing in the yard and got a quick flight in.

I think its safe to say the snow is finally gone(dont wanna jinx myself)! Temps in the 40s-50s are great and who cares if its windy. Will upgrade to some sunnysky motors eventually and need to balance the props for gopro duty with the tilt v-tail. Made a canopy for a scratch build tricopter but it looks decent on the simplecopter 2.0 for now. Have a couple more multi frames to tinker with but the simplecopters are keepers for sure and i can cannibalize gear from other builds to get new stuff going.

Still plenty of snow out and cold but if video is halfway decent in overcast skys it should really be good once this weather clears up.

Do you have a blade nano or mqx sized quad etc,want to have some fun? If your in illinois you know your ready to do some flying indoors and have some fun. Its been a rough winter out here,even people I met at Efest recently didnt care much for the weather out here and named it ''Snowmageddin''. This weekend is your chance to have some fun,maybe win a trophy or two and even a quadcopter if your lucky. Check the link here for more info at BigSquidRc and check out the flyer below.

Not much into competition? Its not a world championship event or anything.. Its for fun and to roll in the new flying season. Who knows,maybe we'll play rock um sock um quads when were done if your more of a basher type flyer. Did you see some of the testing from the quad shootout we did recently?
