Doug, the retention pond used to be a lake, about 10 years ago they drained it and put in the peninsulas to make it a retention pond to settle out the stuff before it empties into the bay. There are a couple of places that are accessible right to the waters edge, but most of it is overgrown and pretty marshy. In the past four months there was a Tigermoth and Mini Ultra Stick that had to be retrieved out of the water, the second one needed a boat to get to it.

A pic of the camera stuck to the bottom of the wing with velcro. The string is the safety leash and goes to a wing bolt.

Nice, Wayne!

I'm just about to send my 5 in 1 up for a try. I might use the Wingo because it is such a floater, but man....that prop is going to be loud. I can only dream of gaining altitude as fast as you did! I like it!
