Parkzone Radian High Altitude Flying Non-FPV

I've decided to make this thread for those of us that enjoy taking our Radians to the upper limits. Don't worry about the stupid lil' mods, just go out and fly and post your videos here!

HAPPY FLYING!

I fly completely unaided. Naked-eye alone, but mostly with a heavy cloud cover, which makes it much easier to see the plane at higher altitudes. Feel free to post some of your flight videos here, if you'd like. Happy Flying!

For distance viewing, a dark color works best.. The transparent panels held determining orientation.

I find that Krylon Flourescent, works best for me and my handy EagleTree Micro-Altimeter. The main reason that I love using Flourescent pink, is in the case of me losing my plane in a heavily wooded area. Which one do you think will stand out in such a situation? Happy flying!

I've worked long and hard over the past 1 1/2 years coming up with a good and stable camera mount for my different camera mounts.

So here is my high flying video with a rather disappointing ending. With the magic of gorilla glue she is back in the air now. I had posted this over in the Sailplane video section but figure it also belongs here. This is probably the highest we had taken the Radian at this point and as you can see it was up there. I made a few mistakes that contributed to the crash but have learned from them and had this same plane up in a thermal a week or so ago at least this high or higher. So without further ado:
