      Was a nice morning with no wind till the light rain came after noon. The TL200o was really nice with floats, much better than expected. Here is the keychain cam onboard.

      And I flew my Drifter for the first time with a Li-Ion pack which gave me a 22 minute flight and could have gone longer. Here is edited down footage:

      Also I FPV maidened my Zohd Drift but by this time the rain had started. Its a Hawkeye Split 4k camera and seems nice and I had it on 2.7k/60FPS for this flight. For some reason the flight controller stayed on stabilsie the whole time hence the jerky flight. Maybe can reduce the gain?

      It was a shame that the earlier than expected rains cut short our flying day today but none the less I think everyone enjoyed themselves.

      The Hobby King TL2000 certainly did fly nice off the water with its supplied floats fitted. It handled the takeoffs & landings like a STOL Bush Plane.

      I found the video of the guy in N Z who put floats on his Esky and he shows the setup too.

          Because of the lack of music?  Must be a kiwis trait.

      Well done everyone and I think Kermit needs special mention for making a three point landing of his Tundra that was out of control 550 meters away with the plane undamaged!

      I put in the mini mobius cam and further back per Mike suggestion. Ready for FPV seaplaning tomorrow.

        Hopefully it will work ok, at least the waterproofing will be better with the front canopy on & the rear one removable.
