Very nice work! Nothing like flying just for the sake of flying.

Looks so familiar! I've spent some time in an S2B, so your first person view there brought back some great memories.

Thanks guys.

To be honest, my flying is not really "extreme" enough to be very watchable, this being the case, my more "atmospheric" efforts seem to produce the most watchable results.

(I'm MUCH braver when holding a TX .... flying models gives you a very good sense of imagination as to what can possibly go wrong !)

Here's a couple more .....

Very nice video. Where was it shot? Loved flying over water! Brings back old memories of when I had my S1C.... I miss that "flying go kart!"

Hi WT,

All shot in England, the beaches and seashores are North Norfolk. The lake is Rutland water.

Glad you like them - I've got a few more on the go, should be finished around christmas time.

Went flying on Sunday. Decided to try some "VNE" pulls to vertical for max number of rolls straight up.

Attempt no 3 and right at max speed (210) there's an almighty BANG as the Gopro on the top of the nosebowl departs.

I'd checked it before I took off - no problems. It failed by the lugs on the casing snapping off - I think the combination of airspeed and propwash were just too much for it.

Luckily it bounced off the cabane struts on the way back to hitting the canopy. I think it missed the tail as there's no sign of any damage. Anyway, looks like it's time for a Hero 3+ and a rethink about how it's mounted.

It's in a field somewhere near Harby (Langar) in England somewhere. I bet if it ever gets found the video will be interesting.
