Sorry all, busy busy week so I am just catching up on the posts. So the goal is to fly Sunday? The weather is looking pretty decent for that day, with mild winds, so am I still welcome to come Banks? I would love to meet up with you guys and fly, if so send me a pm, and I have have a few additional questions. Thanks.

John

Today is suppose to be very much like tomorrow which is nice as the winds are very low. And at 20% rain at 2pm and after that's something I am more than willing to roll the dice on. So who else is in?

Banks and All,

I'm planning on Sunday and would like to get there early 8 to 9 AM or so to try and catch the light winds. However, if that's too early I can probably find a place on the way to fly and then get there a bit later. Just let me know what time you are thinking. I'm going to PM Banks now to exchange phone numbers but it would be nice to see some more responses on here of people planning to go!!!

Cheers,
Paul

Hi guys,

as Paul said, the best time to catch light wind is in the evening or early morning,
and i'm going to fly today after 5PM or tomorrow from 8-10AM at MD.
I'm going to test my new antenna and need really light wind. If it is OK, will show you something new.
Other hours look like too windy for my glider, otherwise just to watch his parachuting.
And will have some kind of meeting w/my family, gonna be busy tomorrow afternoon.

Cheers,
Alexandr

I just wanted to give a big thanks out to Banks for letting the FPV invasion take place at his house, had an amazing time... Conditions were perfect. I am now going out and buying my LRS, as those mountains are just way to close. Pics and video to follow. And Paul you have the coolest scratch twin screw plane I have seen in a while. So when are we doing this again? we can do some location rotations in the future, but that was so much fun flying together.

Banks, Thanks so much for being the perfect host and hosting an awesome day of flying and learning together. You have a great field to fly from and as soon as you get the crop circle or corn maze set up so we can find our way home it will be perfect! :-)

John, Thanks for all your advise on antennas, plane choices, and general FPV knowledge. It was great to meet you and Banks and I hope to fly with you both again in the future.

We had perfect weather and I just got home about 6PM (I stopped along the way) and ran into a rainstorm up here so we squeezed it in just right.

We captured some excellent video with the best being the air to air video with John looking down on my plane with us both at about 800 feet I'm guessing as neither of us have OSD right now. With us nailing our landings at the end it just topped off a great day!

Now to get the 8 gigs of video boiled down to about 4 minutes of video we can post. I guess we'll put it up right here.

Cheers,
Paul
