Oh well.
GimpMan, Thickfog and Canino all vanish.

At least we still have a few good men.
Well I just hope you guys are doing great.

Not sure what happened. Maybe the "Drone Police" arrested them for flying an unregistered 250+ g drone, and they went straight to Guantanamo Bay?


Nice flying Geo. Hope you are not an airline pilot in your daytime job, if that is just cruising, I can totally imagine this happening:

Passenger to steward: "Shouldn't the seatbelts sign light go off now? Since we are in the air already."
Steward to passenger: "Eh, sir, we have a "special" pilot today, so my advice would be to keep your seatbelt locked for a while and hold on to something..."
(Steward sits down, and straps himself in with a 4-point pilot buckle)
Passenger: "What do you mean with a "special" pilo....?"
(all sorts of cries can be heard as the airliner makes a barrel roll, split-s and other acro moves...)

If you fall at those speeds, and hit something, you'd be sliced in 2 parts...

Yes unfortunately they are not afraid to die.
I would.
But this is good training video for our eyes and brain to estimate speed while flying FPV.

My old man didn't buy me a bike when I was a kid. I never did get around to thanking him for that! In a vehicle you've got a some little chance - on a bike, none!

I can’t read the Speedo. Looks like 160k. That’s about 100mph.
I had a guy ( maybe a girl they are crazy too) go buy me on the Mass Pike doing about 80MPH. ( I was doing 70 ) but she/ he was only in the rear wheel.

No speedo John.
He only uses the RPM and he has a small square next to the sticker that you see the gear number.
He has 6 gears.
Well they can go up to 200 mph.
Yes it is crazy.

So what about Canino ?
What happened ?
Got rich on his channel ?
Sad that he does not come by.
I really liked Canino and his novelties .
I hope he is doing great and the same for his family.
Maybe Solo has some contact since the Netherlands is quite small.

Oh smooth flying .

The Netherlands might be quite small but the Dutch seem to like to keep their distance from their neighbours. When I visited (some decades back) all the houses had their curtains drawn - at least in Amsterdam!

That is most likely because they got scared of you.
