It's a GoPro hero 3 with a baseball attachment to your hat.

I can't believe my ASK-21 flight was such a dud! I normally get good flight with it. maybe tomorrow?

however today was a different story. I lost sight of the ASK-21 behind a small tree in the front yard. The glider was out of control heading to trees around the retention pond. I just cut the power and hoped for the best. I was afraid the same tree that ate my P-40 and the Spitfire twice was going to eat the ASK-21.

But the RC gods where with me. All turned out well. I hope to get another shot to night!

I was referring to your model eating tree. In the movie "The Little Shop of Horrors", Seymour would feed the alien plant and it would talk to him. You fed your tree RC aircraft and almost did it again with your uASK-21. I could just hear that tree a saying, "Feed me Seymore!" I apologize for my feeble attempt at making a joke.

Valid pun.

There was, and sadly no longer, on the southern wind slope facing Back Bay in NB CA for us SlopeTrash SoarHeads.


On the north end there was a tree.
