I'm back polluting the net with meaningless pics

I got back in the air this weekend. I still having vision problems but at least I can fly. I wouldn't trust my eyes any where but around my house. I flew 6 flights Saturday and 8 today. If it didn't take so long to charge battery's there would have been more. I took these pics flying out of my back yard Saturday and to day then this evening I went down to my neighbors hay field just west of my house. You can tell these pics as they have the long shadows of sun set. I recovered the bottom of my wing with dark blue it was wight and it sure did help me see it a lot better. I change props on the plane to went to a 14x8.5 I was running a 13x8 man what a improvement. I shot some video to but cant load them from the house.

Hey Dan, how are you. The stitches in my face are gone and other then my my right eye and some nerve damage around my nose and lip I am doing a lot better. the double vision kinda come and goes when looking up at around a 70* angle it comes any less it goes. so no flying over head and I am OK. I still seeing the arcing out of my right eye and that seams to be what has the doctors bothered. It comes in later in the day. all and all it is fair to say that I am a heck of a lot better then I should be. I don't mind telling you that being able to fly has really helped. these last two days have been great. thanks for asking.

Mike

thanks guys. here is a couple more that I took. how do you like my back yard. the field just up in that pic is the hey field that I use a lot when I am at home.

I told y'all I had a lot of trees around my house. one of them is still holding a cc60 esc hostage. If it dont give it up I am going to cut it down. I dont know how you guys that live in the city can stand it. I can see the milky way from my front porch every night that the sky is clear.
