I would stay out of the dead sea for a while since it now has one dead blixer added to it.

Thats a big ouch!!!. Even with the lamp hit that was some pretty amazing low level flying.

I'm curious. Is that the same plane that landed in a hole when there was snow on the ground? I was hoping it would skip over but the video seemed to end very abruptly.

Where'd that pole come from!

69 degrees in Omaha on Jan 30th!
Found out just how tough this little plane is.
Nose camera is a GoPro and the tail camera is an 808 #16.

Looks like the camera took a hard hit!
Did the lens break or was there a casing on the camera that broke

Yes you do!
But I don't have any canyons or mountains to fly into.

Camera appears to be okay but I haven't tested it yet.
While going step-by-step with the #16 (tailcam) video I saw that the plane pitched up and the GoPro hit the loop of pipe near the top of the goal. It was in the plastic case and the hit really wasn't that hard. Plane is on the bench and I will post photos of repairs later. A little more involved then I expected but still only an hours work.

Huge! What frequency is that?
I am currently on 900 MHz but have a 5.8 GHz on the way.
Damn Chinese New Year!
