I could be interested in that, geminiryan. I haven't flown out at the pass yet.

What frequency are you on for video? PM me if you don't want it public knowledge.

I should have the Herc ready to go for round 3 of flight testing.

I'm on 5.740Ghz (chan1) and 2.4 for control. I haven't flown out there either, but seems like it would be a neat area to see from the air.

I've got to do photos in lehi for my.nephews football game, I was planning on bringing my deep reaper and truck out to 5 mile and do some flying as well. Maybe I'll see you guys out there.

Okay. We'll have to take turns and spot for each other, because my video is on 2.4 which will conflict with your control.

BTW, I have a DragonLink system for sale, if anybody is interested. It's what I've been using for the past year. If interested, PM me.

Sounds good, I won't be doing a whole lot flying due to the fact I have but just a couple of main flight batteries. I'm just really looking forward to getting out and seeing FPV done with the bigger wings.

I'll swing out on Saturday. I did some LOS testing with my little swift and now it's time for maiden. I might also bring my quad. I can spot as well.

Demonspawn/ Here's a good FPV 101 that's worth reading. Pretty basic but informative.

I'll be demoing FPV to my fellow BYU students at Rock Canyon Park at 9:00 Saturday. Got stuff at noon, but could fit in a trip to the soccer fields possibly. Where/which soccer fields BTW?

Rock Canyon does look like a fun place to fly! however, on sat I won't be free until later on in the afternoon. But I could head on over once I'm free?

Planning on being out at 5 mile pass tomorrow around 3pm, weather and wind permitting. More than likely will be at the big parking area on the right. If not, there check the other parking areas right there off the highway.

I've pulled the camera off the quadcoper for a couple of weeks. Turned it into something fun for halloween. This is video of a very short test flight to make sure it was more or less balanced and would fly without much trouble. Still need to do a night test to see how well the skelitons show up in the LED lights.

Fyi....5 mile pass is pretty breezy right now. I'm going to hang out here for a while and see if its going to die down.
