The stryker seems to bob around alot in the air and and is can mislead your judgment when you replace the nose cone with a go pro and duct tape lol. I was expecting to be able to pull out before I hit the tree and didn't take the go pro into account. But im loving it!

Don't fault us for flying over the Sedona airport - it was closed for Christmas and no one was around. There was 0 traffic for 48 hours, so we took off and flew towards Thunder Mountain and Capitol Butte and back over the town of Sedona.

When's the last time you saw a 747 at 388 feet? The camera on this plane is weird - makes things look WAAAAAY far away. The 'clouds' are actually just small patches of fog.

Breath taking video Blue Chip! I love the high altitude stuff. I like the nap of the earth stuff too. Awe heck, I like it all!

I followed a couple of buddies' cubs around our airfield. The Sony 1/3" 420 cheapens the video and will be replaced with a 1080p keychain cam on the next rig.

Thank you! The first FPV flight I ever watched was one where an EZStar got out above the clouds and took it just a bit too far... found on the steps of city hall (or something like that). Since then - I can't stay out of the clouds... with my Swifts it's just too easy to do.
