I took KSHeli's suggestion and cut a detour into the woods. First time flying in heavily wooded sections. Also got to play with my backhoe, woot!

Seriously, that was too much fun. Can't wait to get some more packs in out there. Last few runs started feeling really good.

I didn't have much choice, I'd been bereating the people who woosed out when they saw the severe weather warnings so I figured I would just get a few laps in on my own to show it was flyable. It turned out to be fine in the shelter of tree line and a couple of other brave souls turned up, so we had some good racing. There was a gap at the end so top corner was a bit windy and blew you way wide, but rest of the lap was fine.

Fingers crossed we won't have such extreme weather in a couple of weeks when we race again.

Sorry to keep on topic, this is my favourite fpv race video this year, I had to get up crazy early to drive across two counties for sunrise, but it was really worth it to fly with some great pilots we only got an hour or so of flying before the rain came in, but it was magical.

This was round 2 a month or so ago, and the month before, we are all making really good progress each month, so I am hoping for some nice weather and great racing in the summer!

The weather has just been sucking here for the last few weekends so we haven't made too much progress getting our little racing group together. I was sorting out an electronics issue with my 250, but I think it's all good now. So hopefully we'll start getting some good footage here in the near future. I hope to make it out to the TX Multirotor event next month so hopefully we'll get some good footage out of that one. That should be interesting to see how they manage keeping everyone from walking all over eachother's frequencies.

Yeah, I just printed out a few freq charts myself to keep on hand.. Gotta figure out a way to get them on clothes pins like the old 72mhz days.

Going to bring out the F450 with GoPro this weekend to try to get some good overhead footage.

Isn't it amazing how almost anyplace can be turned into an exciting place to fly...?

Like that you left the crashes in the end too. We've also been working to prove the durability of the Gemini's.

I was just sitting watching some of the videos thinking, with all the 4 wheelers if took a spray rig with a wand and filled it with dyed water you might be able to make some bright trail marking with it, with the right :wa might be might be ablessing to spray pretty inexpensive an might be applied fairly quickly, you may be able to spay on the trees as turn indicators. EDIT: Spray one side of a turn one color and the other side of the turn another color, or even take an air tank and spray gun with maybe an exterior house paint, spray a 3-4 foot wide strip on the visible side of the tree so it would be good all flying season.
