Yeah I have a deep reaper but think I want a storm chaser next to try. Wonder if you can put ailerons on the chaser.

Crash Test is now manufacturing a dihedral wing with the angle in the center of the wing, rather than a flat wing with dihedral wing tips. That one you can put ailerons on if you want. That's what I plan on doing.

You mean like this? The Storm Chaser with elevons flies great and is an amazing glider, but it isn't self correcting like the polyhedral wing. I agree with Todd that it will be a popular variation for those wanting an aileron version of a large EPP plane.

Great pictures Todd. you should submit them to KSL. They are really unique.

I'm afraid this morning was probably the last really good opportunity to get fall colors. This wind storm is gonna strip a good percentage of the leaves off the remaining trees.

But our mountains are beautiful year-round, so even when the leaves are all gone, we still have spectacular cliffs, and the snow adds a lot of beauty.

Here's a few of my FPV quad filming a product video for Jaybird headphones. We filmed a inspirational single speed mountain biker who is representing the product. Awesome colors at South Mountain.

I'm free both Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. So either one would work for me. Saturday looks to be the better weather-wise...but we all know how that can change.

I'm pretty sure my next investment is going to be to a CTH DR. I like the versatility of it, I'm one of those who like to exercise my adrenaline glad from time to time, but I also like a mellow sightseeing cruise.

WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

My wildest dream has just come true!!!!

GoPro just announced the GoPro3! Three editions, white (hero1), silver (hero2) and the new BLACK (Hero3). All are half the size of current GoPro's. So the new body style replaces all the old GoPro's and housings.

30% smaller, 4x higher res, 3x faster photos, 25% lighter!

Check out the Hero 3 specs for $399 we get a 4k camera! Hahah!

4K/15fps
2.7K/30fps
1440/48fps
1080/60fps
960/100
720/120

12MP Photo

30 shots in 1 second (plus many more burst settings where you can control how many shots in the burst and how long the burst lasts)
WiFi Built in
Remote Control Included (only on this model – remote is $79.95 by itself) – if you net out the price of the remote, the Black Edition is only $20 more than the Silver Edition.
Advanced Features / Capture (Protune, White Balance, Continuous Photo, and Picture in Video – PIV capabilities)
Improved Housing with flat lens as stock (for better underwater performance).

I'm in heaven!

Anybody want a brand new Hero2? I bought two Hero 2's last week, can you believe it! I'm upgrading the second they come out!

It works natively with WiFi remote and WiFi app, no need for the wifi backpack! So you can control it either from your ipad or iphone from like 600 ft away, you can even see the image streamed to your mobile device! Or you can use a little remote control if you don't have a mobile device, which can control 50 cameras simultaneously!

Oh man, this is just TOO GOOD.
