No, it is carrying hundreds of small satellites that will be deployed. They are for internet advancements. Spacex is also talking about trying to get rid of the space junk orbiting Earth. Orbits slowly decline and we could start getting the junk that is too big to burn up before it hits Earth. So, a design is under way to build small rockets that will propel the pieces of junk into deep space.

Well, it went south so we couldn't see it.

Sure could hear it rumbling and shaking the house though.

The rest of you guys OK?

I think we all went south too.

Everything ok here, cloudy, wet and foggy. Expecting rain any minute. Had problems sleeping so my brain is also foggy.

Yes it is fun but not easy to adapt.
I think the Spektrum land RX are good for at least a few miles.
But the VTX range for the camera might be good for at least 1/2 a mile I hope.
I will find out soon . Since I will use the bike path for testing since it is getting colder ,not much bikes around.
I also have another camera set up with a 600 mW VTX and quite a good antenna on but the camera is not so good.
So I might get another camera for that set up.
Work in progress.

FTP is difficult for me to use, for some reason. I need to look into it more.

LOL... I was running my big Traxxas 4x4 fuel truck and suddenly the engine went to wide open... and the truck went berserk. I still had steering, but I couldn't stop it. Then, I lost the steering and it flipped over and the engine went to wide open again. Just before I got to it, it quit. I can't believe it didn't blow up. The problem with total loss of control was due to the receiver batteries popping up and losing contact. I replaced them and put a new spark plug in, and it fired up on the second try. I wish all repairs were that easy!

Wow.
You were lucky.
Like the F1 driver this morning .
His car broke in 2 pieces after hitting the metal rail

Can you change the Nitro truck in a electric truck ?
Or it is too expensive ?

I saw that happen streaming live.. Cut it in half and he walked away. Kudos to the fire marshals.

I think there is a kit to convert to a brushless motor. But, get your wallet ready.
