      Another fine day (with even less wind than Friday) for flying at the field today, 5 in attendance inc Andrew, Uncle G, Kermit, Gadget & Predator.

      A couple of mishaps today with Kermit hitting the goalposts again with his Bix 3 (easily repaired) and me hitting Terra Firma at the end of a long power dive with my Excalibur V2 (a go home in a bucket type experience)

      Not a real lot left of the battery either, it’s a wonder it didn’t explode !!

      Well what a bummer, after pranging the Excalibur and managing to find BOTH the on-board cameras I just realised that both cameras are now missing their SD cards. Looks like a bit more searching will be in order next trip to the field !!

      Anyway at least there is some around the field footage!!

      Here is my short video of hat cam footage.

      I’ve tried a bit more experimenting with on screen text and transitions to next scenes etc.

      I alway like the “Around the field” videos Mike.

      It’s looking like an expensive Fly-In for me today, The Excalibur is trashed, inc the battery & all the electrics, both the onboard cameras are also no longer working and will most likely need replacing & I’ve lost two Class 10 64Gb SD cards to boot.

      Oh well as the say s#@t happens eh !!

        Hey Mike, would a metal detector find a microSD in long grass?

        I don’t have one but if we could find someone who has one, it might be worth a try.

      Thanks Kermit, don’t make a special trip, we can try to find them next flying day.

      I have a spare SD card here that you can set the detector up to find.

      I suspect they will be within a metre of the impact site as the original impact would have ejected them far more likely than the flying cameras landing in the grass.

      Very sad to see the demise of the Excalibur and Kermit’s goal post attack.

      We had a goodish race on my B14 skiff with my “in training” crew. We even had the lead at the first mark, but I had crossed the spinnaker sheets and tack line over so that stuffed up first reach. Never recovered from there 😞

      Better luck for everyone at the next flying day, may there be smooth air and plenty of sun for everyone 🌅
