Wasn't the great Hollywood production I had envisioned but still alot of fun.

Around 1.10 minutes in the top right of the screen you can see the DarkJeti pilot parachuting back down to safety.
He was recovered behind enemy lines(donkey yard)

Well dirtflirt sent me a pretty cool bday present a couple of weeks ago. Then him and his son show up today for a visit. He talked me into doing a maiden flight on my new AR900 in FPV. I've never flown FPV anything. So here we go.........

Getting alot more comfortable flying. At least with this plane. It's becoming more enjoyable and less of a choir keeping a plane in the air.
Steveflysloco has got into my head a little bit. Love his videos!! The last minute of video 1 was my Bflysloco stunt show,lol.
Also because of him and dirtflirt I'm practicing my low fly bys. Dirtflirt and his boy are headed up here now so we should have some cool videos coming this week.

Well here is what happens when you rush a repair.
I forgot and used only the 2 stripped holes and forgot to add the 2 unused mount holes. Still funny as hell.

Built a 30" SSD with the esc and motor off of the 40". Let's see if I can handle the ride.
Battery on charger now.
Jimmy is going to get a flight in with his Dirt Flirt too.
Will see if video shows up with this super grey day.

Well it's been pretty busy around here. With the shop staying busy and deer season going not much time for anything else. But everyday I do RC somehow. It might me reading up here on the forum with my morning coffee or taping up some foam board for future projects, I try to RC a little everyday. Well remember the buddy I mentioned in my 2nd post? Well he had come up to visit about 6 weeks ago. He was really excited to see me fly and check out the new airfield out back. We got to talking and he had said that he looked into a couple of planes on HH but they was out of stock. I pulled out the tablet and checked for myself and sure enough one of the planes he was looking at was in stock. He handed me his card and said order it, have it shipped here. Cool, done. I had also showed him some videos of Ed's work with DTFB. I didn't think it would be up his alley but he went home ordered a esc/edf combo and visited Dollar Tree Awsome I thought this is gonna be fun.
Well he showed up this last week to hang out and fly planes. He had a newly built [email protected] Jet (thanks Ed) and he also bought a Nano S2 before leaving Dallas. Myself, I have been getting a couple of batteries in here and there. Nothing new, still take off and land in begginer mode but mainly fly in intermediate. So I'm coming along. Here's some videos for your viewing pleasure.

P.S. He hasn't flown in over 12 yrs. Just a very little time on my sim since I bought it a couple of months ago. His interlink has been broke for years too. I just found out today that he bought a new sim.

Alot of fun this Eve. Nothing dramatic, just slow learning flights. Gps still disabled. Still flying in beginner mode. Flipped the switch a couple of times to Intermediate and wow. I'll stick to begginer for a bit. I did realize after my flights this Eve that I have the transmitter set to high rates.
I believe if I flip that to lo rates then intermediate won't be so bad. Only time will tell.......

Well I think I'm comfortable enough to charge up 2 batteries and enjoy a little more fly time.

What is the magic number I'm looking for in battery voltage after a flight? I running 3s 11.1vdc 1300mA

I had set my timer lastnight for 5 minutes. When I cked that battery it was 3.91vdc. I think I could fly a little longer but don't want to push it to far until I get my approaches and landings down.

I did realize lastnight that it's not smart to have your wind sock right at the threshold/entrance of the runway. I needed to be at the windsocks height to have a better landing approach. So it's moved.

And away we go...........
