A newbie pilot with a four-channel airplane who knew how to add a little extra juice to it, make an onboard video and put a GPS logger in it.

Well done, Roel! Lotta the "experts" who post in this Beginner Training Area could learn a lot from you.

hahahah.. I got a lot of advice from some experts pilots.. :-)

My first flight was on 30 July , In the second flight i had some problems with the elektronics. See the video.
So i bought new elektronics meanwhile the distributor investigates the old elektronics for errors.

Panningen countryside looks a lot like the area around Nijmegen. Brings back memories from when I was over there with the Canadian Armed Forces in 2005 doing the Vierdaagse? Four Days March. Flat, green and lots of really nice people who like Canadians, I'd like to go back and do a large bike tour with my family. Thanks for posting the videos. What camera did you use?

Thanks for the vids, sure looks pretty over there... are you using skis or wheels? I have a HZ Super Cub with a set of skis, wheels and also floats. Going to try the floats on snow if there's any left tomorrow.

i used krylon short cuts after reading lotsa threads on the subject. i did some sanding on part of it. where i sanded left marks. its just slightly visible though. this paint sticks great. im not even sure if the sanding helped.
you can find this paint at craft shops and only comes in 3oz cans. they cost 1.89 a can. i used one can and applied two light coats. the red came out deep. all of the black was done with a giant marker bought at walmart for 1.49. i am very happy with the results from both techniques. heres a couple pics strag
