Cx2s come in pairs

Congrats to you and I hope the damage issue works out well. Fly them for a while and get used to them then move the CG to 84. You'll like it. Save 82 for the wind.

Roland is on top of his game.

Thanks John. That seems to be the consensus on how to fly them in wind or turbulent air.
I'll get there.

Camera taped to the end of a tall pole . There's too much bouncing movement though. I'm going to try it again with the camera(man) on top a tall ladder and just zoom. It needs a little better lighting too.

(anyone know what would cause a video on Vimeo to not play back as HD when saved as HD? Do you need to be a paying member on Vimeo? I followed all the guidelines for saving as HD....)
Nice launches. I love the way my CX2 launches.

That's odd with vimeo. If I go to the Vimeo site, I have the option of downloading your original High Def video (I just did... it is indeed HD).
