    That sounds fun! I have thoughts on an ice yacht with a motor from a hang glider. My boss's father has one that he is considering selling off.

    Last weekend's final flight, Sunday night.
    Caused a visit to the RcFlight shop today, on the way home from work for some spare parts.
    The left wing strikes a a reflex stick...

    That is some excellent slow flying, Lars, and crazy rudder action! Very nice set up you have.

    Back to the note 5...

    Yes low weight together with the rudder does a great job on this aircraft, it turns up in the headwind in no time. So far I am very pleased with the lightweight T Motor too.

    Yes, thankfully I was almost in level flight when the Mobius died, not in a middle of a sharp turn...:eek: just about 200 feet away from me, spotted it at once.:)

    So the Mobius is able to record and be used as the fpv camera simultaneously? I started looking at goggles with built in DVr capabilities... My eyes say yes, but the wallet says no.

    Yes, Mobius are pretty good that way.:)
    Hmm... Yeah, goggles:cool: but the HK Quantum is enough in my early career.

    It is time to move the transmitter and battery into another one.:)

    See you again Highlander, when the snow is here.
    fifteenth flight and the last one for a while.




    1080pHD Should be viewed in full-screen HD For best effect.
    just a few mouse clicks away on Vimeo.
