I went camping over the weekend and I have taken aerial footage all over that park, so I left the GoPro and 350QX at home this time. After eating dinner at the camp site I checked my email on my phone and someone posted a comment about my footage from the park I was staying at. What were the odds?

So I scrolled down to the comment and it was from a person who used to go there all the time but now has cancer and has limited funds because of it. She thanked me for bringing back so many great memories. I read it to my family when we gathered around the campfire and I cried while reading it.

I make the videos and share them all over the place so people can share in where I am and what I am doing. But to know I made some one feel better for a little while when their life isn't going so well was really special.

I know that the federal parks just temporarily banned drones and I hope that they come up with a solution for that. As an AMA member who follows the rules, I would like to keep documenting places I visit. There are hundreds of parks here in Pennsylvania and all I want to do is see some of them from the sky.

The Fun Fly started with this as I pulled in:

Dual Giant Scale Extra 330 SC Flying @ Fun Fly (8 min 34 sec)


I had a great time flying my new Sport Cub, Yak 3X, 300x and other stuff. I was really tired at the end of the day, but decided to take my Goblin up with the Ikon system in flight stabilization mode just to discharge the battery. A pop and some smoke later and it was on the ground on fire. It wasn't a total loss! I still have a tail cage! Time to rebuild from a new kit! I might go Beast-X this time.

Oh yeah, there was an auction and I got a Blade 300 CFX for $300! There was a DJI Vision 2 that went for $600. If I only had the money!

It only took me 2 tries to come up with this prototype and it is pretty solid. What do you think?
