Of Fish, France, FPV, and Fun!


I haven't updated my blog in forever, so here's some of what's been going on.

I got a Dream-Flight Ahi...

Dream Flight Ahi Slope Aerobatics Glider (3 min 0 sec)


...and took it to the French Alps, where I met François Cahour, the godfather of slope aerobatics...

François Cahour - Troll at Col du Joly (3 min 38 sec)


..and the Ahi loved the alpine conditions...

Ahi in the Alps: Col du Joly (3 min 45 sec)


Ahi in the Alps: Mt Clocher (4 min 21 sec)


...and then I went to the French Pyrenees...

Pyrenees Freestyle (4 min 37 sec)


...where I met some more friends...

Stéphane 'pgts' Combet - Troll au Port de Balès, Pyrenees (2 min 58 sec)


A+ France (3 min 33 sec)


...and when I got home, I got my FPV rig out again...

FPV Slope Soaring: Golden Weasel Chase (1 min 56 sec)


...and upgraded it with headtracking and pan & tilt...

Sunset FPV slope soaring (2 min 7 sec)


...and to top it off, I got an Inductrix+ to do some FPV quad flying...



(I'll add a video of that soon, too)

...oh and I ran a slope aerobatics video contest while I was at it, too... here are the winners:

First place
Ahi Makes It Easy (2 min 59 sec)


Second place
AHI from Dream Flight (3 min 2 sec)


Third place
Ahi Beach (3 min 1 sec)


Whew! Fun times in the hobby lately
