This is my land I fly on. This property was given to me and my wife after we went thru Katrina on the MS. gulf coast and lost everything and then got totally screwed over by State Farm for everything also, except our vehicles. Then the city zoned us a velocity zone, unbuildable, after living outside in a tent for 6 months and then a travel trailer for a year. I never want to camp again. We have an acre on the beach thats unusable, but beautiful. A Christian Dr. gave us this place to live for the rest of our lives for nothing. God likes folks that don't gripe at Him...Then my heart went out and I got back into RC and wala!!! I had a place to fly!! We are so blessed, but NOT rich... Dave/zeezee ...sorry google map pic wouldn't load..

That story warmed my heart in a tough time of my life. Praise Him that you were taken care of by one of His own. Enjoy your flight time

Got in a couple flights on the DJI Phantom with GoPro this weekend, but no time for editing. I may have some video up in a couple days. Saturday was gorgeous and warm. C'mon Spring!!

Here in Fairbanks we've been hovering around 40-50F... below zero It's supposed to warm up to positive numbers this week, but I don't have anything to fly anyway.

Well I don't know if this is considered an achievement or not.......but here goes.

I bought a multi-rotor (Flame Wheel 450) back in Nov-12....roughly. I had never flown one previous but wanted to try my hand. By Christmas, I had a QAV500 built and I have been flying it FPV and doing some videos etc.
I am loving flying my quads! So much, that my planes have been a little neglected the last 4 weeks.
I have a good grasp on flying my quads. Fast, slow, high, low......blah blah.

BUT......I wanted to attempt flipping and rolling! So today was the day to try.
I took my Flame Wheel to the park before work. It was pretty quiet, not a soul on the park.
I flew about for a bit in GPS and Attitude modes (Naza) and landed for a fresh battery.

I felt courageous and went into full manual mode. A very different flying experience to what I am used to. Got my quad up high and let loose. I did a back flip, then a front flip and then even did two consecutive flips. I was pumped. Then I did some full rolls also, both left and right.
That was friggin cool!!!

Like I said at the beginning, probably not a big deal or accomplishment to most, but I got a kick out of having the nuts to do it, and actually pull it off!

Love this hobby........

Cool deal Grazer! I'll be joining you. It was in the -40s here, couldn't fly so I amused myself by ordering parts for a Q450 quad from HobbbyKing.

C4H10 - Welcome home. Hope your brought your mittens. I'll fly tomorrow if it's calm and warmer than -10. My new favorite spot is the marsh at the corner of Murphy Dome and Goldstream. Land on dogsled trail.

Wow....-40's! That is chilly. Expecting 100 to 105 F for next week here. What a contrast!
