gators & camera setup

Ironsides,

Just about any pond (including the"cement Ponds") will get it's share of gators from time to time. The area where our field is located is rapidly becoming an industrial park. Where the human population goes up, the gator population tends to drop. It is not uncommon in most freshwater areas (rivers, lakes, ponds, drainage ditches) to see half a dozen gators at any given time. You kinda get used to it.


Blue Sky,

Thanks for the compliments.

I am flying a slowstick w/ aiptek mega 1.3 modified by Wild Moose (Roger). For the money it sure is hard to beat. Especially since he even deals with the focus issues.

I have been flying a couple of old 7 cell 500 AR nicad packs from a speed 400 glider. I just got a 8 cell 1050 NIMH pack. It should provide me with quite a bit more time in the air. I'll just have to watch the heavy hand on the throttle with the 8 cells and the stock 300 motor. Upgrading the powerplant to a eps 400 c-f gearbox from Aeromicro should also help. My guess is I'll eventually graduate to a brushless.
