the long overdue video, finally, yes can you believe it

shot after crash yeap, lost it main blades, canopy and left skid tube got it...replaced the blades and repaired the canopy with blade tape, what i had on hand at the moment, replaced the skid tube after the video was taken...had to stop due to rain

the building you see in the background is where we are housed on base, yes i know, it's a warehouse...nothing but the best by Army standards...not, they suck!!! here's what the damage looked like...

here's the link to the flying in about 7 knots jsut before it began to rain...

Video quality and camera was good.

We all would have been interested in seeing the crash.

That looks like a tight area to fly in. It "cramped your style".

We'll look forward to more vids!

Yeah, you'll have to find a big field somewhere and let her breath a little more. Nice video, the little King looked like it was set-up right, not too hot, not too cold. I've never seen anyone hold the transmitter so high before, not that is anything wrong with it but it almost looked like you protecting your face in case it came too close

You could really notice the tension in the pilot,you need a larger area to fly in, and relax a little.....

thanks jw...it's a best buy brand "insignia" 7.0 mega pixel digi-cam about 70 bucks, that was the first time for the camera too... yeah the area is a bit cramp, have another area in mind, just checking on the wind patterns around it...it's constant out here, few and far between calm days here

the weather cleared up later day and i got 2 more packs in, wind was a little stronger, guess it's also good training to learn to fly in the wind, so when it's calm, flying should be lots better

I was looking at the pic and noticed you reversed the blades and paddles then noticed in the vid, you have the blades rotating the other way.

Interesting.
