Ive thought about this for some time,today while checking out storm chasers on the discovery channel on youtube it looks like someones finally trying it. I enjoy the shows but thought the deploying of the probes was just to random. Im sure many will see the cons of using an rc plane to get footage as well as the risks but the chances of success will be much higher if they can enter the tornado rather than hope it goes in the right path and data and video are logged on a ground probe. Looking forward to seeing more on this one.

Heres some of the footage i found so far on this project.

First run with the truck. Got the mamba toned way down in the video.. lots more power available but toned it down big time when it was in the losi buggy.

Foam is fun,less expensive,easier to scratch build with than balsa,can fly foamies just about anywhere. For a long time i thought of foamies as a crutch and concentrated on flying balsa almost exclusively. The goal was to eventually buy a 50cc size plane.. thats where balsa really starts to fly like foamies when it comes to the floaty parts of flying,but then your making a big commitment for just one big plane and also the transportation thing and how often will you actually get to fly it.. just stepping up to 55'' size electrics can get a bit pricey these days. For now im sticking to the foamies and i'll probally come up with more scratchbuilt stuff this winter to fly around with until spring.

Really windy on the maiden flight but the winds took a break on sunday and i was able to get a couple more flights in. Nice to fly it with out the 20+mph gusts.
