LOL trying to get things stirred up are you? The heatwave is keeping me inside for most of the past 3 weeks. Today is the first time I could shut the AC down but I had to cut the lawn that was getting ready to be mowed and bailed, the first time in 3 weeks.

A lot of folks are away on vacation here, the first couple of weeks are the scheduled shutdowns for a lot of factories.

I've got some extra inclusion work right now and with baby and RC club events, it's been busy. I did just happen to recently sell my Blade SR and ordered me a sailboat from HobbyKing

I'm still having fun doing my very amateur AP thing with the quad. Still waiting for my 1280 by 720 camcorder. I'll try to post one or two clips on my You Tube page later on tonight.

Cool. I love the high flying vids. What's the name of the bridge in the background? It looks like a "cable stayed" bridge similar to what we have in Boston. The Zakim (here in Boston) is suppose to be the widest cable stayed bridge in the world.

The bridge is the replacement for our current Port Mann bridge. It is still under construction.

For those who like high flying vids. This one was shot over our club field. I figure I was close to 200 feet in the air with the quad.

I love the country side. God's country. How is the orientation up that high? 200 feet? I ask because I notice you only pan less than 180 and not the whole enchilada (360).

It has provided a lot of employment. It is a monument to the government in power. The best the taxpayers can afford. All polls indicate that the current right wing government is due to get thrown out on its ear in the next election. It will be a toll bridge replacing the current free bridge. Our governments love to "over-toll". They say the toll is only to pay for the construction of a road or bridge. Traditionally, tolls last about ten years after a project is bought, paid for and fully maintained.

I was just too lazy to do a full 360. Orientation is not as difficult as you may think. Remember, this quad has auto-altitude hold and GPS. It can hold on point. As well, two arms are red and two are white. Two of the props are flourescent day-glo green so thy are pretty easy to see.

Just for you, the whole 360 degree enchilada. I'm loving this thing. Not the shots I thought I was getting but it works.
