Heh. Haven't had much to add to this thread yet other than avid readership.

Joined the group though. I'm in Windsor, Ontario, but no club affiliation at the moment.

Invid, if you find yourself closer to Toronto some weekend, let us know. We got a large group of FPV pills this way.

That means you don't have a pile of political minded mothers running around breathing down your throat.

@ polix: It won't run downhill like a knife that's for sure but the climb will be better than good.

400m isn't terrible at all. I have yet to crash outside of 400m away.
Nice flying.

Not that far unless you are badly out of shape and there is wet snow to walk through in an uphill field. I let the gopro roll when I arrived to the plane and shot around me holding the plane in my hands, but I didn't use that footage because you could hear me breathing so loud.

Need to make some exploration trips on foot with the tricopter in a backpack this summer, would help my health.

It's an idea, but I prefer to walk to a remote location for recording amazing footage instead of recording the same spot of grass for all the time I walk to recover the downed plane

Or I could eat bad pizza more often

BTW Tracks, are you goig to see benderfly ?
