A lot of people stopped to spectate, so I spent a fair bit of time giving rides
under the passenger goggles. Public reception is almost universally positive
but I can't believe how many times I've heard "I could spy on my neighbors with this."
Sigh.. Makes it worth it though when some woman exclaims
"This is like flying!" as in, how one flies in their dreams. Yep.

Daemon,

Great video man! Have you ever thought about going to the Lakewood AMA Pro Motocross National and getting some race footage with you multicopter?

Cheers,

I actually have thought about running over to Thunder Valley (very close to me),
and seeing if I can just chase some decent riders around. I'd like to get some
120fps footage of em on the big jumps. I wouldn't mess with a big event.

Yea I would cruise over to thunder valley on a practice day or local race day and get some footage. It would be pretty cool to get some aerials of guys riding.

Excellent, as always! Thx Ian.
A bit off topic but is anyone else having an issue watching YouTube videos embedded into forum threads? Not sure what changed but in the last week or so I can no longer watch embedded videos. Also, if I click on the YouTube button [bottom right of the embedded player] it does nothing [won't launch Youtube in a new window]. The videos play just fine if I open a new window manually and go directly to youtube. Vimeo videos play just fine embedded in the forum threads.
Not a big deal, just annoying.

EDIT: Seems to be IExplorer related, no issues using Firefox or Chrome. Been looking for an excuse to migrate off Explorer anyway.

I always just click on the link in the title bar that rcgroups generates to open the vid
directly on yt or vimeo.

Short clip from skywalker


Short clip from a skywalker 1900, using 5.8ghz 600mw, but had issues with interference + my rvosd did not want to return home, so was a bit scared to go further. Wanted to go over the mountain, but already at about 450 meters it was only stattic.

I've noticed a lot of people having a hard time finding out which side of there DL RX antenna is neg. The Neg side NEED's to be pointing down. The ''How to'' states to look in the hot glue and distinguish which is pos and which is neg.

With mine i didn't have any Problems but verifying it is correct may be a good idea.
So i made this little video to show a super quick way to making sure

My batteries also drop voltage much more quickly. Sucks. Losing a good
chunk of flight time simply due to how cold it is.

Last year I was flying in snow storms and people were telling me how crazy I was. This is what I do this winter It doesn't fly, but I'm comfy on the sofa
