It sucks getting older! And you know it's bad when you anticipate the eventual boredome. I know full well what that realization is like. Nowadays I think about that everytime something really gets me excited.

I love the fact that at age 49 I can still have something affect me like that! I know it will gradually go away - I'll miss the exhileration.

Hey Rob,

I am sixty-nine and I've been flying since my early twenties. Amazingly enough I still fly with some of the guys I started out with, and have movies to prove it. I enjoy this sport just as much now as I ever did, except that my knees knock a bit less even though they creek more!

I get just as much kick out of my pico Tiger Moth as any of the bigger and hotter things I have to fly.

My Easy Star isn't all that super, only climbs at about 45°'s, but I am putting a couple of 3000 kv Aeon motors in my Twin Star to make up for it.

I think if you do something you like, you don't get tired of it. Winter is the proof of that! First sunny weekend day brings all of us out to the field just like it always did,.

Pete

The quality of the picture in the video goggle is very good and the quality of reception is awesome. I used a standard 3dbi antenna on the receiver, the planes stay in visual range.

I already fly during two years aerobatic planes using goggle, but the cams was fix, this year the cam is in the cockpit and move, it's a lot different, and a lot better. The goal is not to see things on the ground, it's 100% technic, I will practice to do perfect roll, loop, hammer head etc so I don't need to go far and I don't need a beautifull landscape to watch and I don't need perfect weather, it's very differents from the Easystar. I will also continue to make videos with my Easystar, with the new equipement,it open new feild to me.

Here the video of the third flight of my CAP232, you will have to enter the three letter to dowload

or watch in poor quality on Youtube

p.s. battery was not full charge, plane have a lot more power.
Wow!

This is the most realistic video I have ever seen, awesome job with the cockpit!

Where are the triangles of the wings, have you removed them?

That´s a short landing area if you don´t use the road, and with the limited view from the cockpit has to be pretty dificult, good shot.

VRFlyer - Great job. That cockpit view is fantastic. Is that the stock canopy? It's very clear and undistorted.

Mangus and Pete - I know what you mean. You know you're all grown up when you intentionally slow down the journey knowing full well that it is much better than the destination.

I love the fact that people like VRFlyer and JettPilot push the envelope to keep us inspired.

yes it`s the stock canopy, clear like crystal.
the triangles was not install for the test flight.
My goal was to land on the road... I lost lift and land where I could even if I would do it again, I will not be able

Yes I agree! They have extremely creative minds and tend to think in 3D and through barriers! They have my respect!!!!!

Here's another fpv video of the EZ* at the local high school at dusk with calm winds. Knees were still shaking. I actually felt a little queazy. Not motion-sickness but just plain old nerves. While flying under the hood I had the sensation that I was standing on top of a telephone pole. I could feel my toes trying to anchor me to the ground. Very tiring. IT WAS AWESOME!!!

21mb 5 min. 320x240 video

My first video

Hi all.

This is my first video from my Easystar. The flying was done at our local flying field. Did not go under the hood as I wanted to get familiar with the aerial view first.

It's not as good as some I have seen on this group but enjoy!

I'll bet that after you saw the video you were sorry you didn't do it via FPV.

Still, it pays to have a good video to familiarize yourself with what things look like from the on board camera, especially the landing part.

Ya Pete, that would have been a good one. The only thing was the cloudy sky. Made for allot of dark video. Good thing to know. Next one will be with goggles less clouds.
