oh about a year and a half ago this is when i learned that radians do NOT exit power dives just fast forward to 2:09 or so, at this point the radian was looking pretty beat up, i had crashed it quite a few times already. This was the last time this one flew. Took me 10 minutes to find the camera.

how did you do the split screen thing. I have been thinking about trying to do that with two cameras on my RP as well.
Also what is the highest altitude that you have taken your RP too ?

Sorry guys, I posted my vid in the wrong section. I'm flying the Parkzone Radian, not the Pro and the highest altitude that I've been with the Radian, is 3,101 feet AGL during a lightening storm. I've got video of my other high altitude non-fpv flights in the Radian section and on youtube. The software I use to edit my vids,is called, Movie Magix Pro.

Nice job. You apparently have the motor mount angle dialed in correctly but there is no difference between pushers and pullers with regard to the affect of a pod mount on the plan's pitch. If mounted horizontally both apply a pitch-down moment because they are pushing or pulling on an arm extending up from the center of mass. Ideally the thrust vector would pass through the center of mass. The farther ahead or behind the center of mass the motor is the easier it is to achieve that but the ideal is often often not possible in any pod mount.

Thanks Max. I will check that one out. I suspect that in my Adobe Premiere or on my iMovie on my Macbook Pro that I will find that capability to do split screen
I will check out your other aeriel videos
Here is a link to mine

That was funny! An old flying buddy of mine, that I used to fly with crashed his so many times and repaired it just as much, that we started calling it, frankenradian. lol, but as far as power dives, go, I've done quite a few and managed to pull out of them.

I feel your pain, there. I've gone through 2 fuselages and the 3rd one I gave to my flying buddy, because I decided that it was cheaper to do a good repair job, than to keep buying fuselages. ) Still have the same wings from when I first bought my plane 2 years ago.
