It can be used for all kinds of things. We are using it for marketing messages and professional video. It has a stabilized gimbal and can hold a full size DSLRs amoung other high end cinema quality video cameras.

Here's a video that we shot last month using the helium airship and a multi copter. It was filmed at a private track up by Echo reservoir. Jaybird Headphones are sweet!

Thanks guys. It was a fun one. We did another with a professional mountain biker that should be online with Jaybirds new product launch mid November. Not as much aerial but still pretty cool.

I'm probably doing Rock Canyon Park with the BYU Club for the morning, but will be driving by the Sod Farm area near noon if anyone is flying there.

I finished a reaper xl last night. I'm hoping to take it out and fly LOS to see if it will fly. Probably go snag some pics of the new Payson temple too. All boring stuff. Kills me to think that next weekend there may be snow in the valleys.

I went to do some quick testing out at the Eagle Mountain baseball diamonds. Drove up to find 5 or 6 cars parked there. Turns out the CUPRA (central utah pylon racing assoc.) was having their final race today! VERY cool, I ended up watching them and checking out all of their aircraft instead of flying my own! WAY FAST!!! Going to try to catch the sunset later on from somewhere...haven't decided yet.

You like those baseball diamonds, don't you!

I would have liked to have seen the pylon racers. Any pics?

Do you want to meet out at the diamonds tomorrow?

What a gorgeous day to fly FPV. I was out for maybe 6 hours today. Got a little sun burned on the face. I made the mistake of trying to change locations before sunset, and just as I was launching my plane at the new spot, the sun set and I didn't get to the mountain top before the light was gone. GRRRR! Shouldn't have stopped for a freaking Whopper on the way!

Ah well, ya win some, ya lose some. The modifications I made on the Herc worked well and it's flying nicely again.

I can't wait to go flying again now that I have a fully functional plane!

Sounds fun,

I had a yard sale. Liquidated a bunch of crap that I have been storing, and in turn I paid for my new Quad frame.

What a great video! I love FPV'ing over roads. I really like the kids throwing rocks at the aircraft.
