One of a few packs from today. Sorry for the shakiness ahead of time.

Good to see you back in the air with your 550 Ed! Looks good.

I was at a fun-fly last Saturday (Helis over Apache Pass) and was blown away by the caliber of the fliers there, one young man (an excellent flier) was 8 years old! It took me all day to work up the nerve to fly but I finally did. Seemed like I was flying in slow motion after what I'd seen all day. First time I've ever flown with somebody flying on both sides of me 50 yards away or so. It still was lots of fun.

Nice flight Big G!

I remember feeling the same at my first time flying "in front of others" at an event. Nerve wrecking. I was just hoping to not crash. Great flight boss!

Ed,

I don't know how you flew that, could you see the disk at all? I'm impressed! Our club is doing night flights monthly and now that I have two 550s I think I'll turn one into a night flier. Thanks for the reminder.

I'm up to flight #4 on my second 550. Had a little residual tail wag but it's flying so well that I started to push it a little. Also tried self level on the Ikon, that's really slick. Next time I'll do it from inverted.

Yeah I think the batteries need to be changed but I can still see the disc pretty good

Good stuff George!

I had a couple "pushing it" moments today. Uploading as I type. More than anything I'm doing things closer to myself and the ground....probably not too smart.....
