Great Falls, Va 7:30am - March 30th

Here's the pics from a video test flight this morning...






I almost hit the Port-A-Potty on the left when I was landing. I tried a different way of mounting the camera. Looks like I'm picking up noise from the motor again.. Video soon to follow.

Platform: E-TAV v1.5
Cam / Downlink: Blackwidow AV 600mw Brown Bag

*Edit*

Here's the video...

It's a park off of Rt-7 and Utter Back Store Road. Google for Forestville Elementary School Fairfax and you can get a closer address. The park was built some time last year. It has sat empty ever since. I drool every time I drive past the HUGE parking lot.

I'm on 72 mhz channel 35. It's said to be illegal to fly in FFX county. I think the cops wanted you out of the park since they close at dark. Even if it's illegal to flyin Fairfax County... It's very easy to go down the street to a couple of the parks in the next county.

Yeah according to this thread...

On RC Universe

It appears that it is illegal. Have to LOVE Fairfax County! Either way now that my plane is tested I'll head back over to NVRC.

well I was flying once in VA and a cop told me no flying, but I told him it was a park flyer and electric powered. He saw it fly soo slow he said its like a kite. But I would have to leave if the park gets busy. I told him I do that anyway.

I was just kicked out of a park in Eagle River Alaska by a Muni parks guy. I was flying an electric Cub made by ParkZone, and then an electric SlowStick dropping parachute guys. The kids love the parachutes, and even compete to catch them. I was told it's against muni code. Makes sense for a gas plane I think. Oh well...............
