The board of directors of the Video Actually Flying Together Association (VAFTA) met today, and it was super fun on the hill again.

Kloner dropped it about double overhead lawn mowing the trail, and followed from the far pad back to us; Oak tree dodging central. I am sure he will post. Having done this, I pushed my Spektrum AR8000 to the limit and I followed him over there. I was sweating, as I started to feel the characteristic servo glitches of frame drop, as I passed the HUGE house, and brought her home a bit higher in the air to keep better control. We could easily land, and re-launch remotely from there, we need to try that.

I got rid of all my expensive VRX antenna's, going to two horizontally opposed rubber duckies; and I have never had better reception. We all managed to find frequencies that did not ruin each others signal.

I got back from Sorrento and just checked my email, there was a google+ hangout request sent at 9:57am, exactly the same time we were set to be out at Sorrento. Sorry, 4 hours notice is pretty rough.

That was an epic day for ol kloner. That's the funnest i've had flying my daughters plane to date. Double overhead? wait till you see the film, think it was more along the lines of mowing the lawn....... Can't believe i aint had to walk for it yet.

Kloner, I saw you on my 12, and then saw peeps on the trail, and decided to go for the skies. You were way more balls-ee than me, I have done that walk, and if you knew how far you would have to walk, you might think twice...... and I edited my last post for you.
