Is that the Sprayberry fuse I've been bugging Roy to sell me for the longest time? Lucky dog...

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

Hey Barry, Emile started getting real nervous when I told him you wanted that huey I told him I was considering selling it to you and he came to get it the next day...
Besides, I couldn't stand to see a grown man cry like that
He had been asking also for a long time and we finally ended up trading for one of his already painted fuselages.

test flight video
one more flight in the fuse before i remove the mechs to convert back 2 pod n boom. meanwhile, the fun stuff on the fuse gets started. the sliding doors are now sliding and the windshield gets fitted so i can get some cockpit stuff done.

Nice job Doc. Did it really get that close to the camera. It looked awfully close. The camera was on a tripod or some other fixed mount so you personally weren't close.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

thanx guys.
i was behind the camera trying to keep an eye on the screen to make sure i stayed in the shot while keeping the other eye on the heli
not as close as it looked, i zoomed in a bit because i didnt plan on getting too close. Brandy's car was the camera man since my 13 yr old Dyllan had already gotten off to school.
Yeah Stan, although i havent flown it in fwd flight yet while in the fuse, in pd n boom it does well and after fwd flights in the fuse are conducted, i ill decide then whether to put a rate gyro on elevator(pitch) control but only if it seems to need it.

Hey Doc, here is what I do for fixed camera shots to stay in the field of view. Set the camera up pointing to where you think you will fly, then checking the camera screen place small flags like the ones they use for marking underground wires, close to the edges of the camera frame view. Then visually target something in the background as a maximum height reference. Fly between the flags and remember the height reference while flying.
While I can't fly for chit, this works for me.
Anyway thanks for the pictures of your development.
Paul
EDIT: Sometimes I use multiple flags to show the field of vision from maybe 30 feet to 100 feet.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
