Have you guys seen this??

Watch at YouTube

Besides flying right next to a road with a big heli (not a good idea) This guy is awesome! I think that is one of the best/ most entertaining flights I've seen.

I saw my nephew yesterday and he just got a DJI Phantom 4 drone. He never flew anything in his life so yesterday was the first time he was going to fly it. I thought this should be entertaining. I guess I didn't realize how ridiculously advanced these things have become. They have just about achieved complete idiot proof technology. This thing now has object avoidance so it can't crash into anything. It also has 4K video camera which is pretty amazing. So here we have a guy who never flew anything in his life and within five minutes was comfortably flying over a lake taking video. I guess it is more like the machine was flying itself he didn't have do much other than put the battery in point on a screen where he wanted it to go and then tell it to come home.

And here's the other thing my two brothers were so amazed by this thing and how easy and instantly gratifying it was I guarantee they will both have one before the end of next week.

Of course they ask me if my helicopters will do all this automatic stuff and I say "no of course not, I wouldn't want it to". And then I get the "you're an idiot" comment.

Then they will all be board with them in a few months. Now that FPV drone racing is cool, Steve let me wear the goggles when he was flying and that was awesome!

Mount Pleasant was a little better. Actually it was perfect. I saw some new guys and equipment but there was enough dead air that you could fly as much as you want without out a 700 doing a XFC routine next to you. They waited until you got down and then did their 1/4 mi high speed passes. No one but me from GR though. Next time I need to bring my beach umbrella. I didn't think about it but 8hrs in %100 sun was a bit much.

That was fine. I was quite a bit surprised though. 80 degrees, no wind, no event fee and just me. Years past I have read about people going with rain, temps in the 60s or high winds but yesterday was perfect. I guess the lunch time smoker guy not coming out was too much of a let down.

Hey Brian, you could have grabbed a table and come into the big tent. All were welcome.

Glad you had a great time!!

Looks like it's going to be good flying tonight, a little warm but low wind and no rain.
