Remember my parents telling me how they didn't trust the house doctor's first assessment that it was some flu or child's disease, and they brought me to hospital, because I was not nearly as responsive as I usually was, even when I had another disease, that most children catch during growing up. I don't remember much from that, I think I remember the spinal tab to confirm the diagnosis, but might also be my mind projecting images from medical programs, in which similar things happened. I do remember that after I started to recover, that I played in the hospital corridors, and tried to stall my parents from leaving when visiting hours were ending. I then asked for another story, or to do anything, so they would be there for a little while longer. Being in hospital as adult can be scary too, I've been there, but for a kid, especially in an era where there were no cell phones to text or instantly call your parents, or friends, it's really hard.

I got away with very little to no damage. I do have some balance problems, but not with walking, but with things like riding a bmx bike on it's rear wheel. I could never do that, when I got close to the point of where the bike had the right angle, and I should be able to continue on a single wheel, my brain tells me I'm tipping over, even though that is not the case, and instinctively I would push the front wheel down again. And if I fly FPV acro, instead of just cruising, I need something to lean against, or my legs turn to jello almost.

Funny thing is, when I am on a boat, I have no balance issues at all, and I can walk around a moving ship without feeling uncomfortable.


Anyway, back to RC, I've been busy trying to update/upgrade some older quads, that are still with me, and maybe haven't reached their full potential yet, because there wasn't time for that back then, or it didn't seem worthwhile. Here's the Bfight 210, first with stock camera, which may not be very visible in the video, but it has some weird image distortion due to the 16:9 camera and odd lens, making it uncomfortable to fly:

And here is the same quadcopter, fitted with a different cam:

And also did some flying with the R349, just for fun:

They all look good to me, Henk. First one had some video break up Seems like that tree caused problems when you flew behind it. (?)

Foliage blocks/absorbs the signal. And since it's spring, the trees are green again, with plenty of leaves.

Here, in Paradise the thermometer is showing 91F in the shade. It's going to stay that way for the rest of the week.
Grrrrr.....
Yes it is quite popular.
Wow that is a nice temp. Here only 70 F. with crazy wind.

Yes, that's what I was getting at. I fly on 5.8 because it penetrates foliage better.

He does as well Buzz.
But he is only flying with a 25 mW VTX or 100 mW. He needs 600 mW or like on my Vortex 150 Pro 1 W. totally illegal in Canada. But I just fly around.
I am not a bad boy your Honor I swear,,,,lol.

I think the car came out of nowhere .
The driver was shaken . Nothing broken.
Some maneuver to overtake the City bus.
I took the picture while walking my dog .
I was between the bus and a fire truck.
They did not seem to mind.

Correct, I often do the first flights with the lowest power setting, so I can get an idea of how the VTX performs. With 200mW or more, it's often easier to keep a steady signal in difficult conditions, but on 25mW, you can often see more differences between individual VTX.
