Nice one Art ! you were much better at following balsabuster ! and as for the landing I was thinking " 90 degrees crosswinds" <yeah he is looking for an excuse > and then it happened

Sweet sweet landing but on the edge of the rumway mind you, the windsock justified it

Got a late flight in last night on the ice, did this one LOS and hope to make a mount for the Haier and dual-quad rx receiver tomorrow and get an fpv flight in. Also danged if I can find where I put my flytron strobe, but had a cheap dollar store LED headlamp I strapped to the front of the plane - helped quite a bit for orientation at distance, even though it doesn't show up that well in the video (see overlay about 1/2 way through)

ps. shot in GoPro's 1080p/30fps mode

Sunset on the ice (4 min 2 sec)

Excellent video ! Very nice place to fly and beautifull images with the sunset. I like how you put the overlays, shows the plane flying very stable, I even saw the flashing light. Of course I like the HD !

Merci! Because I uploaded quite a large file (400mb) it even looks not bad full screen after the compression, watched the raw video last night on my 50" plasma and it was excellent. I like the 1080p's FOV a little better, does not distort the horizon as much.

The raw from last night's flight is 1.12GB and 10:37 long, that's at 1080p. At 720p 60fps I got 9:24 and .99GB - so roughly the same. Have not tried the 720p 30fps or 960p 30fps yet. Files are MP4 format right off the camera.

Anybody thought of doing an FPV Easter eggs search party this weekend ? Could be nice to make the kids look at the monitor and spot the eggs (big enough) and then go search them in the field...if you don't have kids (or kids young enough), you can always fly FPV and eat the eggs between flights

Hummm...Art, usually when I ask that much questions about a product, it's dangerous for my wallet
