Randy! That little camera does a good job, and it was pretty cloudy yesterday. Very nice flight. And it landed really quick and easy.

Cool Randy! That landed almost like a helicopter! Nice green countryside too.

The nearly verticle landing is one of the great things about autogyros. That landing was done in about a four mph headwind and all I did was cut the throttle and it quit moving forward and gently came down.
The more I fly the multipod the better I like it, especially for it's small size, light weight, and ease of use. It's so light that you don't need to do anything on just about any plane in order to have enough power to carry it.
Vibration doesn't even seem to affect it as much as it does a lot of the cmos cameras for some reason.
Thanx for the compliments guys.

Here's another one I did the other day. It was a nice calm sunny day so it was a good time to wring out the slow g and see what it would do. It surprised me at how agile and stable it was. I don't really see an issue with it hauling a light camera, although it is rather tricky to land. Still working on that one....
