      It was a rather windy fly in today @ the Field but the wind didn’t keep anyone grounded.

      Kermit was anxious to try out his new video camera so he did a bit less flying than usual & as a consequence had no prangs.

      Uncle G, Stephen, Hoppy & Andrew all flew without incident today.

      I had the Bixler, Li’l Eagle & BumbleBee all airborne at some time today, all without incident until the final flight after lunch with the BumbleBee.

      I was flying rather aggressively and while the internal loops, rolls & spins created no problems one final external loop somehow managed to eject the flight battery at around 100 ft.

      Luckily for me the reduced nose weight in BumbleBee (no battery or canopy) allowed it to just sort of float down & land softly in the ferns, even the LiPo battery suffered no damage from the long drop. Will need to make a new canopy cover though as it could not be found & probably blew for some considerable distance in the strong winds.

      No video of the crash as the camera was connected to the flight battery.

      Only the one vid from me today on my TL2000. Using my Hawkeye Firefly Split 4k Cam but set to 2.6k before movie maker and youtube reduce the resolution even more:

      Well done Kermit, nice job. But I’m with Tugboat, with all the filming you did today you didn’t you didn’t get the one and only crash!

      I’m ready for tomorrow, I have modified the frog catcher as Tugboat suggested and fitted a few big sharp hooks to it.

      P.S. thanks for the special mention at the end of the video.
