"High energy flying" Big Ceres Super Strong at Torrey Pines

Thanks to Marty Dine for taking and mixing this one for me! This is my beefed up Big Ceres flying at 12.5 LBS in 13-15 MPH.

High Energy Excursions at Torrey Pines (6 min 59 sec)

I fly my Big Ceres with a kilo of ballast in the tube nearly all of the time, the energy retention is incredible. Watching your video gets me all excited!
I have been flying mine today but with an electric fuse, I have had the electric fuse kitted out for nearly two years an have only just got around to flying it. I use two 4 cell 2600 lipo's connected in parallel to give a 5200 4s-2p power pack which out lasted the flying session, just love this ship.

Marty great video editing.

You're the Warren Miller of Slope Films.

The slow motion clips were great -- imovie??? If so the next club meeting speaker should be you on video editing with iMovie.

The club website needs a Video page for all TP videos (the TD and DLG guys can have one too), throw in Dr Fogles presentations/photos/vids too.

Phil's flying is superb as usual. +1 on the glance over the left shoulder. "Clear a path, a big path cause the Big Ceres is coming through!!!!"

Oh him!......I thought it was a reference to another "Warren" we know (and rather forget!)

BTW where are the inverted push ups?!!
