Wow, gorgeous day out. Anybody up for some FPV? I'm loaded up, I just haven't decided where I'm headed yet. I'm thinking Tibble fork & the back of Timp maybe. Or if someone's going elsewhere, I can chang plans. PM me if anybody's interested in hooking up.

Wish I could join you. Violin recital and two soccer games for my girls. Busy day.

Great day. Fly well!

Dang it....I'm busy getting ready for our Halloween party tonight...it is gorgeous out. I might try to sneak away before everyone shows up. Still trying to get my RTH dialed in.

I wish I had a way of recording my flights....was out last yesterday while the sun was going down. Sun had lit up timp...with the snow it was glowing! AWESOME...

Anyone have a small cheap keychain camera or the likes they would like to get rid of??

Couldn't find anybody to fly with today, so I changed gears and went with Ryan (Plane Insane) to the Hee Haw pumpin drop event, which was hilarious. We spent the entire day out there just watching them drop pumpkins from a few hundred feet up and demolish things like Pianos, swimming pools, old cars, arcade machines, file cabinets, and an old camper trailer that got literally flattened by three MASSIVE pumpkings... I'm talking pumpkins the size of recliners and couches. Thousand pound plus pumpkins. Couldn't believe the pure carnage we witnessed and filmed.

Ryan actually stuck one of his GoPro's inside that old camper trailer when it got demolished, and the explosive force ejected his GoPro out of the trailer window and landed dozens of feet away.

We rigged GoPro's up on the drop mechanism so we could see them dropping, like he did in his last video, and he did some aerial shots as well.

My face hurts from smiling so much. Can't wait to see how the footage turned out.

Oh ya, Good times today. I hope the 3D stuff turns out. That would be so cool. I realized today that I need some kind of shade for my gopro lens. The sun reflects through the props and makes it look wavy.

Todd, do you know if you have my handle bar mount? I can't find it. I think we used it on the double pumpkin double drop last.

Looking forward to seeing the video! Sounds like a blast.

Is anyone flying tomorrow? Looks like it's going to be a repeat of today.

I have looked for a sunshade for the sunex lense, and haven't found one. I get the same thing. I looked around for something to make one out of, but haven't committed to anything yet.

Looks like I'm not going to be able to make it that early. If that changes, I'll let you know.
