Well today is the day, yesterday we had 25km winds and today, maybe the same, but right now its dead quiet and not a breeze. Yesterday I chanced it and took my drone out for a flight with a friend who has a similar one.
(they have two - One of these http://www.helipal.com/storm-racing-drone-rtf-srd280.html and one of these http://www.helipal.com/storm-racing-drone-gps-rtf-naza-v2.html)

Was all good fun and duck nuts hard as the wind was a pain, I got thrown into a barrel roll, the drone auto corrected before impact and landed hard, and the smallest stick pierced into the drones RC controller wiring and torn out one of the cables from the plug. So last night was a mad rush to fix it. Drone is working and have put hot glue around the connections to ensure no plugs can pop out again and if a cable snaps this time, it will break in the middle and just need to be resoldered and heat shrink done.

Have today packed in my Nikon. I don't have any zoom lens as I am not into photography so will see how I go with pics and getting some one to video it.

Images of me packed and ready at 630am. Leaving at 830 (so hyped and awake!!)

Will add more pics this afternoon I hope.

Sad news. Was too windy today so no racing Sad You could free flight it with others if you wanted to risk it. So we did. 1 Drone ended up a tree, and others crashed out. Overall, not bad, only 5 drone pilots turned up, 3 heli chopper pilots turned up (1 crashed and smashed the landing gear off and broke something in the main rotor) 7 planes, and they were huge. No jets turned up.

I have a video I need to dropbox of two guys just cruising and doing tricks off my iPhone, was a cool sight. Put me to shame. But everyone is keen to do a race soon. People are going to get some star pickets and pool noodles and next time is not too bad make a new circuit and we all try to race.

Sorry to disappoint anyone who was after some cool racing vids. Sad

On a plus note, my wife saw a pic of the setup and bought me a carry case from Bunning's. Fits everything but the controller. YAY happy me Smiley

Top is the track layout.

One is a mate who screwed his props on upside down and flipped, only a short vid of his fuck up.

Next was a person flying a larger scale drone high and around, alas, he snapped it in half when the wind blew it and he lost control. Snapped in half HORIZONTALLY - WTF mind blown when I saw it.

Other Video was some one doing the circuit, but it was so windy it had to be done at slow speed. If you went to fast you would more than likely strafe into the side and crash out.

Last is a pic of a chopper that crashed out too, bad luck, timing and wind killed it.

Hey; just a quick video I was given from last week. Its a figure 8 we were flying last week. With bad winds again and weather is raining today so its a fucking bad month for outside sports and activities.

Objective - go around the pylons at the end and fly through the middle flags. Try to be as low as possible and repeat the track as many times as you can also. Seems easy but if you watch it the wind does knock you around a bit. I got some good runs and then a single blade of long grass got wrapped in a prop and pulled me down Smiley

This is really fun to do and is a good laugh. I would recommend you get one with some friends, it is an expensive outlay at first but then all you need to buy is props and maybe a motor if you burn one out.

Looks like fun. Video quality isn't great though? When it is moving there is a lot of blur. Could be my shitty internet speeds.

video on the day was not the best, bad wind, some one else flying nearby and lastly, that's some ones thing $30 (not a gopro) plugged into my screen trying to capture what I see. Hence its got scratchy sound but nothing else.
