What no goose dinner ???? And your geese up there are big mammy jambes.

John your Quad sounds like Four mixing bowls side by side. Neat sound.

You guys Mike Partain (Spiked 3) was showing me his new Quad built from parts it was real nice the best thing he told me it was only $150 to buy all the parts without the RX and batts.

He should show it off if you ask nice.

What I'm actually excited about at the moment is tuning the flight controller PIDs from the cell phone instead of lugging a computer around. Park FPV is pretty close to being done. Long range FPV is on hold until motivated again. Acrobatic quad is next, another F450 clone, target $ also about $150.

Lookin really good Flarpy. Nice attention to the details.

In my opinion patience comes when you realize doing something slowly & getting it right the first time, is still much faster than doing something quickly two or three or four times. I still need more patience myself. Sign me up too for Cry’s next patience webinar.

However your next vid should be entitled "Sparrow FPV". with rapid panning high speed shots of woodland creatures fleeing for their lives as you thread your way thru tree branches at speed, skim the river inverted & mow thru the brush on knife edge. lol

In the middle of a rebuild from a stupid low mistake and crash late last summer.

I got the airframe back together and will be replacing the motor box.

I cant believe I have come this far along in the hobby. It use to be I was freaked out just having to build an ARF.

Many thanks again to my friends for all their support during my journey in the hobby!

Especially in the beginning with those many long nights after work with Vitter helping me out (with pizza).
