Takeoffs and landings

I compiled this takeoffs and landings video with the SSS and others. The SSS is pretty easy either way but I prefer a traditional ground takeoff.

Various takeoffs and landings-LOS and FPV (2 min 39 sec)

if you have the 1w argtek booster i reckon your vid & rc would be well matched for range, and as a general flying setup above tree tops this works fine, I have my scale warbirds flying the same setup, works great, especially with "tuned" CL/SPW antennae

I also had the same setup with my bixlers, but because I do a lot of low n dirty flying, I totalled it because I dropped that little bit below LOS behind a dirt mound, lost link, foam confetti in seconds
Since then, my current Bix2 MkII has Dragon rc with 5.8 vid... the 5.8 keeps me honest when flying low level, Dragon has been faultless.

Thanks. A few criticized that it didn't show proper launching technique, but that wasn't the intent.

I am considering selling my SSS. I just have a lot going on right now.

SSS has never flown. I have upgraded motor ntm 3542 1250kv. I also have a 48" carbon replacement spar from Goodwinds. The fuselage is split right now. I didn't care for the factory glue, or glue job. I also have a carbon arrow shaft for replacing the tail reinforcement. Perfect fit btw. The idea was to reinforce fuse and run VTX harness etc. to rear of plane then rebond fuselage halves together.

I also did modify the tail (slightly). I made it detachable with nylon bolts and removed the canopy magnets and located them in the perfectly sized holes found in the tail components. Looked like the original thought by designers was to have them there anyway.

I'm looking to fund a APM 2.5 so again, I may consider selling. But quite honestly I'm on the fence as I do really like it.

Just putting it out there since it came up.

BG

Edit:: I'm totally over selling my SSS, not going to happen.
