Coyote Buttes, Glen Canyon, Lone Rock - AZ/UT stateline


from ground level the place looks nothing like on aerial pics

YES! YES! YES! (Keep tryin' to upload!!!)
I really enjoy your photos! Especially the Zions!
I even ordered a slinger to bash to be like You!
A suggestion: Go check out the Canyon De Chelly just down from 4 corners, on the New Mexico/Arizona border, fly slinger around "Spider Rock" and you'll get some more spectacular shots!

Looks like you have some nice smooth and soft landing zones.

Great pics.

thanks !

now I'm 30mi away but still on AZ/UT stateline in Glen Canyon camping on Lake Powell at Lone Rock beach. Utah is so colorfull !
I flew my little (under 400g AUW) scout plane with DSLR Canon camera (technically SD20 is single lens cam ) just 5minutes ago and here is a pic. Wait few hours till sunset, imagine how the beach and Lone Rock going to look like.

edit added:
This Afternoon: Sunny, with a high near 70. North northeast wind around 14 mph, with gusts as high as 22 mph.
as you see the beach is busy but few in the water - too windy !
I also have kayak but have to wait for wind to calm. Good thing I can fool around with my 35" wing as turned to be out trully all weather all terrain AP plane

I'm in love with my new AP plane
it is so small and quiet to fly anywhere, no longer I feel like criminal !
today I flew it hours to please crowds
just few inches of wingspan make difference between "dangerous" an "cute"

here is my 35" flying wing with Lumix LS75 onboard
somebody tell me which shot best

Awesome pictures!

13 years ago my company worked on that power plant you can barely see in your 2:30 picture. Its in the top right corner. You can kind of make out the 3 stacks.

I havenít been back there since then and spent a lot of time on that lake. Brings back some good memories. Thanks.

It sad to see the water level as low as it is now. You can see the high water lines on the rocks.

Any chance of getting some shots of the dam? I use to fish off the rocks on the AZ side just up from the dam.

Keep em coming..........

I knew Lone Rock will be better looking by sunset



Park ranger (NPS) saw me flying and just ignored ...what a useful AP plane !

Great photos, I pass thru that area every time I go to Tucson to see my kids but weather or time doesn't allow flying. Its great to see someone that loves his plane and flying. Keep the photos coming.

the dam (same as Hoover Dam) well monitored by police as well park rangers, their headquaters right next to the dam. I think 35" plane still too big for close up shots or movies - working on 25" AP plane with the same 60watt motor new plane will be even faster.

here are few pics taken above Lees Ferry 3 days ago, the ferry is few miles down the dam.

Hi fmkit!!!

I just love what you have been doing with you wing taking vids and pics...you inspired me to build one for AP to add to my AP fleet. I used Tony65x55's Flying Wing design.

Here's the details in the build thread:

and a link to some video.

60" KFM3 Flying Wing for AP (1 min 45 sec)



I can't wait to get some shots with this bird!

Thanks for your voyage and keep posting your pics!
