Your working season is coming to an end. Hope you saved up some clams for some of your new projects.

Mike.
Yeah, Mike, I've always used those right from the beginning

Hopefully maybe almost another two months, weather permitting. Was just telling the guys at work this week it's time to start saving for winter projects... and I'll be picking up my pre-order of the HZ Sport Cub S soon... at least that one, as my one last major "toy" purchase of the working season, will be easier on the wallet this year, last year's was the DX9

Thomas that is amazing .

I have yet to understand how you even see it that high ? I would be afraid the wind would blow it away.

I got to fly mine for a little while right after dark, but it was still windy and it was gusty at times....blew me into the ground a few times .

I laid down some old carpet on the field and was doing some ROG take off's with it...never did get a good landing tho...just to darn windy .

Hi Ghost. Thanks for the props. I know that you get some serious wind at your field. This video was taken at around 7AM. Wind is calm early and late. If you got up early, you may see it high up there. But then. It sounds like your wind is way worse than mine...
