Hello All,

Could you guys who PMed me e the Go Pro please let me know today if you want one? The order is going in this afternoon, and I have a feeling there will be none left by the time they arrive.

Cheers all,
Mongrel

I wish, man... Really I do... $50 deposit, and then $100/month until it's paid off?

No Probs kev. I suspect I will keep stock, and according to the supplier, there is stock readily available. I just hope the price does not go up too much after July 1.

Is this the HD version of the Go Pro? Would you mind posting a link to the stats of the camera so I can take a look? Thanks...

I had my best FPV session yet last weekend...

This is cut together out of 5 different flights each averaging 17-18 minutes... Hope you enjoy it. I am starting to get comfortable with it all now and am getting more bugs ironed out... Next up is the installation of the long range radio system to start pushing things a bit more.

Yes - it is the HD version.

It is the HD "Naked" which is the Camera and Housing.

Hi Lads,

OK - The order is in for the Go Pros and I should have some more info on ETA etc tomorrow. I am expecting them early next week, so all going well you will get them late next week.

I may have a couple left over from this order, and if so will list them on the site. I am still waiting on confirmation from a couple of guys, but anyone else who wants one from this run, drop me a PM.

Cheers
Mongrel

This is a quick edit of one of the flights with me flying an easy* and SPG in the Radian from this morning. SPG had a few hardware issues with the GPS info not showing correctly which made getting the altitudes the same to fly close really hard.

Despite the problems was fun flying together. It is really hard to fly close and find him as the radian doesn't fly as fast as an easy*. You can see from the video that the Radian is more of a floater.

I should be able to do up some more videos soon.

Were there only 2 of you? I really hope to get to the next one if you host another.

Hopefully the planets will align and I'll be able to come.

I agree... I wished I could have been there too!!

We really need to plan one for the Summer time when they days are long, and the beers are longer.

Nice video Mr_B!

Thanks again for the hospitality and the use of your private flying field

I'll definitely have my EZ* ready to go for our next flight and hopefully have those Eagletree bugs ironed out.

Cheers.
SPG.

Hi guys. Well since Me_wantee stuffed up and SPG will be returning with an easy* (hopefully with no GPS issues) then I will do it again and to make it easy Sunday is a good thing.

So this Sunday it's on again. I'v still got some food and all here which we didn't get to so why not?

So every one it's happening again this Sunday.

How's that sound everyone?
