No but there is a limit to how many times this video can be reposted and I think we just hit it.

Bah, don't be a bunch of killjoys.

This was shot by Dadde, he's from Switzerleden. He's been here in the states for a month or two, then did some other traveling. The last I heard, in Mexico, avoiding the cold and snow of his native lands.

I can't wait to see the footage he returns with.

He's been to SEFF (got to meet him there) he slapped one of the hosts of Flite Test, and he flew his tri around a giant peach.

Maybe if you guys were out having fun like this, would would be happier, and less likely to complain about reposted videos

Sorry Sid3ways and Timecop,
I did a small search to see if it had been posted before. Nothing turned up.

I'm sure there are people who haven't seen it yet. Lets say I posted it for them.

Just goes to show that with all the on screen horizon indicator displays I have seen we still need target tracking reticles.

If I went outside right now and found my home surrounded by balloons, I would be completely defenseless with my quad based on the shot to kill ratio I see in that video.

No kidding...
