Some sort of problem with the original video or maybe with the upload.

I see video but no sound up to 1:18, then black screen with no sound
from 1:18 to 2:12, then black screen and sound (sound which
doesn't match any part of the video we've seen before), from 2:12
till the end.

Should probably check to make sure the original is good, then try uploading
it again.
Otherwise, if you're interested PM me, and I can provide a place you
can upload the original video where I can either host it, or make sure
it gets toto YouTube in one piece.

Not likely, looks more like a corrupt file. Probably just need to upload it again as Ian said.

But rest assured we are excited by what we've seen so far.

I suspect this one is going to be my FPV (First Person Video) platform
with a pan and tilt camera and 500mW wireless video downlink.
I wanna do this
on the slope.

Biting ankles since '53
Looks nice!
I've got ask, have you ever had a plane run over on that road?

My Fox can't run over the road for some reason.
May be the plane just too light so it stop just touch the ground.
The wheel is very smooth I can said.

I think he meant has a car ever driven over a plane you have landed on the road?

I think thats why the first landing attempt was a 'go around'?

Wow Ming, the performance appears outstanding!!! The EPS wing looked to have very little flex and nice energy retention on the big loop. Like the rest of the posters, I too would prefer all EPP so that I can mod the ship for higher performance with Goop, ribbon spars, reinforcement layers(tape or roofer tape) and covering. I believe that EPP will be the best core for that method. However, I understand that there is a larger market that you have to consider and those buyers will likely not modify the kit and will require a stiffer foam. Anyway you decide is fine as I respect your need to operate a business as you see fit, I am just happy to receive one of the first models regardless of the material.

Much success,
