Well the gang had another great day for flying @ The Farm today, it was a superb Autumn day with very little wind.
We were short a couple of the regulars today but the four that made it had some great flights and a few minor mishaps (as you do) but nothing significant.
Kermit & Miss Piggy had numerous flights with his Phantom 3
& a couple with his Tundra however a bumpy landing dislodged one of his suspension springs and unfortunately grounded the Grass hopper until a replacement can be sourced.
After a quick reprogram of Ian’s DX6I to suit his X-Vert plane, Ian managed several flights with this interesting flying machine. With no wind in the morning takeoffs & landings were fine but after lunch as the wind picked up ever so slightly Ian found the VTOL was a bit of a handful in Vertical mode even though it still flew well in plane mode.
Ian also managed a rather rough landing with his Bix 3 that will require a couple of minor repairs, this was after several successful flights, just like me the other week, Ian got a bit to cocky and paid the price.
Gerald flew his aptly named Thunderbird 13 (Mavic Pro) but its search & recovery prowess was not needed today so it was scenic flights only. G tells us his brand new Bix 3 is almost ready to take to the skies.
I started the day with a couple of uneventful flights with the big Grand Tundra “Bush Pig II” and then a couple of flights with the rebuilt SkyClimber “The Phoenix”. No FPV goggles today just Line of Sight and relying on the Ground Station for all the FPV telemetry. (videos below)
