Thanks! Actually I like those strings, gives me an idea of how fast the plane is going

also here's a slight update to the last video.

I don't think we need a bungee launcher, my deep reaper gets up easy with a gentle side toss with full throttle, and its heavy with gopro and all fpv gear.

That's just my opinion

I launch with the goggles on, and I find it difficult to throw with the goggles. Plus the bungee launcher lets me sit in a shaded spot and launch the plane from anywhere and in any direction. And the chances of a bad launch are hugely reduced with the launcher as long as everything is setup the same.

Here are a few pictures of the eclipse that had a few clouds from our location.

The double images are from the binoculars viewer we made. It worked well enough we could see sun spots too.

Lee- very jealous! Couldn't see the eclipse from here. Too many clouds and I think the sun actually set by the time it happened..
