      10 of us turned up for a perfect day with warmth and hardly any wind. Unfortunately Moose and Andrew had a mid air with carnage. I had my first FPV with my S800 wing and went straight around some trees. Inevitably the first time ended with a tree strike, but second flight was OK until my prop chopped off my 2 FRSky antennas causing range control issues. But I got it back OK.

       

       

      And for my Le Petit biplane, BA asked me to remove the pilot so we are expecting some exciting video editing from him:

      Nice flying Hoppy. I really love the FPV of the take off on your bungy launch 🙂

      Yes sure was another perfect day in Paradise, teeshirts were a change to the windcheaters we have been wearing of late.

      Tested the rebuilt Bix 2, she will be good for a few more training sessions yet (turned out there was a broken tooth on the elevator servo that has most likely been giving all the grief.

      Flew the iNav equipped BumbleBee and this time used a decent flight battery, no issues at all.

      Also extensively tested the (now iNav equipped) Raptor FPV platform. This time (after I adjusted the couple of settings I forgot last week) she performed flawlessly. Will get the new low profile camera gimbal & FPV VTX refitted now ready for our next fly.

      I forgot the handicam footage.
