This offer was sent to anyone involved with the Warren Miller premier held downtown in Oct. I believe the code can only be used once. So first come, first served. Let me know if you're interested.
Sent you a PM. TIA

burrito bomber lol... it's the crazies like that that cause all the trouble. The idea of sending "anything that will fit in a burrito sized tube" via un-manned drone would be pretty scary to a lot of people and deservedly so. Who knows what might get "sent" that way.

A word comes to mind... Dorks!

Of all the ways to give RC a bad name... this one takes the Darwin Award.

Todd, if it makes you feel any better that I got to that GoPro code before you (... ��), I was explaining rc flying and fpv to a dinner guest, and I brought up your YouTube page. We spent the next half hour watching your videos, and feeling a general sense of awe.

Seriously, you inspire me.

I have one more code. PM me your email and I'll send you the link with the code. It worked without a hitch for Elcapitan.

Sweet, thanks Davidpe!

And thanks elCapitan. Glad you like the vids. My new FPV video is done, just gotta do end credits and upload it. It's pretty sweet.

Not nearly as cool as Todd's stuff but just to prove to you guys that I still fly..... sometimes. This is some footage from the Swell.

Cool places you found there, Ryan. I'm anxious to get out and fly again after tonight's spectacular winter sunset on our Rockies. Made me drool all over myself.

Got a new GoPro Hero3 from UPS today. Woot! Thanks Davidpe! Christmas came early at my house!

My new hex is flying like a dream. Putting the FPV gear on it now. Can't wait to get out into the winter wilderness and start filming.

Hey, so did I. Dave, you're the man.

Just got back into town, too, so I'll have to get to my gear and warm things up, so to speak.

Glad it worked out for you guys. My GoPro Hero3 is going on my new birthday present. (to myself...) I bought a Finwing Penguin and I'm getting it all together this week. I also have a uThere RUBY system coming. I thought I would change up my usual RVOSD that I fly with. I have a few friends who are using it and they seem to really like it. They also have a range video like OSD coming.

I've been working on this modified airframe.

I made so many changes to it, and wasn't perfectly happy with it, so I just decided to start flying, and stop changing things.

Wouldn't you know it, my motor crapped out.

3 failed launches and I finally tracked it down to the motor.

Now I wait for a new motor.

I like the looks of that Penguin, I've been keeping up with the reviews and comments and so far it seems like everyone really likes it. I've been looking at these air frames from my next traditional platform project:



I've never seen uthere products, I'll be curious to see it in action.
