You gotta maintain a "battery" diet.

That looks like the Wyoming I know! But, are those natural rock formations that you land in front of? With a sphere on top? It's looks as if the aliens from Devils Tower may have stopped there. (See Close Encounters of the Third Kind to know what I refer to!)

Nice flying Kyle

I know how small rock spheres are formed (like bowling balls) but, that's the biggest I've ever seen. Or it's just an optical illusion

hey guys! got the 120 out of the box last night and gave it a try. to my surprise, i think i did pretty well. took 3 tries to get if off the ground the right way but the 4th was fairly easy. had it in my family room which is somewhat full. the room is 24x24 but the space i had was only about 10x9. had a nice long hover until the air from my eden pure heater made it move in another direction and i had to cut throttle.

got it up again and had it going forward and back, and side to side and back to hover. even did a 180 and flew it back to myself.( my fingers still remember from flying planes that everything is in reverse when its comming to you.)

all in all, it was a nice 1st time

Is that the low proton diet? I hear the gassers have a low carb diet. And the planks have the South Beechcraft diet.

Bwa ha ha ha! You know the 120 can carry a camera, right? Next time, post the heli's eye view to Youtube...lol! That is assuming they don't catch the heli first!

The rocks are natural but not placed naturally. My buddy has collected them and stacked them that way. He likes to balance them on other rocks and fenceposts. It has always amazed me how they stay balanced without the wind we have here, blowing them over!

Thanks WS! I used this cam:

And mounted it as you see in theses pics. Kinda handy and easy to mount on a PBY Catalina anyway.

Nope, not an optical illusion! I know, my plane about kissed one of them! This plane comes in fast, have to learn to slow it down on a longer approach!
