Default Bill's Ultimate Factory

Here's some pics of Bill's Goldberg Ultimate Factory! He made templates from my kit and is building a fleet for himself. Nice work, should have one done and ready for the spring! For him, half the fun is in the building! He is finishing a 1/4 scale Balso USA cub and got a 1/4 scale super decathalon on the table too! Not for me, I like them ARF! In 40 years, I built one plane. A Goldberg Extra 300. It lasted 2 weeks. Knuck had a mid-air with Mike Wilson's Aeromaster and that was it! All that work, and BAM! Couldn't take it! Bought them ARF from then on!

Default Fly Field!

Some pics I found when I excavated the fly field! Still have the D8 Dozer and the Road Grader! Took a lot of work, but to level a top of a mountain was a lot of work. Well worth it!

Default Quadcopter

Here's a video taken by Mike and the GoPro camera mounted on the quadcopter. We didn't know he was out there. We were working inside the bldg. and heard a thud:

Default Quadcopter video

Mike's first atempt to take some video using his quadcopter and gopro. He just used line of sight this time guessing where the plane was. Next time will be better because he will be using his ftv glasses to track the plane. Nice experiment!

Default Mike and the Go Pro

Here's another video of Mike and the Go Pro on the Quad copter! It's hard to see the small yak plane, you might have to use full screen. We will use a 20' steamer on the next video so we can track the plane better. See what happens!

Default GOPRO Video

Another video of Mike's GoPro taken at the flyfield on a 30mph breezy day. Took up the little twist and did some "FLAPPIN AROUND" in the wind! To windy to do anything other than just stay up and figure out how to come down in one piece! Should work nice on a calm day!

Default Another GoPro Attempt!

This time we put a blue streamer on an ultra stick to see if you can see it better. It worked a little better. We also had Beau look through the FTV to help keep the plane in the screen. Had to fly in the 30 mph wind again and fly in the box to keep it in the camera's screen. It should work better on a calm day and look a little more organized!
