Yes, that island is stil an objective.

BTW RCM, great video about the summit. Loved the editing and view but the camera was blurry ? When are you going to FPV it ? Told you you'd need this truck guys

the camera I used is one of these Hobbyking cheap wing cameras which for some reason has become disappointingly worse and worse at recording. this is my friend's truck and he did fpv it with a gopro and a 5.8GHz link, but because the gopro was only stuck to the shell then his video was a bit wobbly.

the thing is I nearly screamed when he told me the price !!

RCM, get a hold of yourself ! You are a FPV'er, you are used to throw money at your hobby !

Just strap the GoPro to the front top roll bar with some velcro between the 2, it will help to have a more steady cam.

I was honored to have him over on several occasions. He always kept me posted on things back in Washougal and we would talk or email once in a while. We spoke a while back (probably about the Saints) and just emailed a weather report on the gorge winds very recently, so needless to say, this blows me away.
Chuck was a man of few words, but what he said was either very useful or very funny! I'm proud to have been a friend of this wonderful man.

Art, please express my sympathies to his son and daughter although I'm not sure they will remember meeting me and also to Bob and the other fellas at the field. Chuck will be sorely missed.

I just loved Chuck to pieces! 8^)
We spent a lot of time together the last few years trying to figure out FPV flying. We shared a love of all things techno-geeky and had a good time integrating this in to our radio control hobby. Loved Chuck's quirky sense of humor too. Interestingly, I met Chuck after he turned his radio on without checking the frequency board and blew me out of the sky!! Wasn't any real damage other than the walk of shame to retrieve my plane. 8^) I'm looking forward to spending time with Chuck in heaven... we can fly some First Person View with our own wings.

So the weather has been better for the last 2 days (weekend ) and I managed a few flights. I'm off this week, so guess what I am doing today (after waiting for the plumber to fix a leak on my boiler )

I managed to get my greedy hands on a Gopro2 going very cheap in favour (to make room for a gogro3 )
So I will be able to put out some HD footage soon

thanks.. it is hard.we agreed on a flight pattern but I kept on losing him, so I climb to find him again (so he becomes white against gree), then I pounce on him when I find him and I tend to overshoot him...

I widh, the problem is that I always fly in the same spot, so my videos will be boring unless I start doing silly things with planes
