I am very much afraid you are going to wear a little brown, grassless spot in the middle of your yard. I used to see those in the fields where RC airplaners went to fly...

I wonder how long before they make those cameras so small they can piggy-back on hand-launched balsa gliders? I might have to find a local source for Hot Stuff!

And what to my wondering eyes doth appear - the ad for Suncoast Rehab Center, formerly known as Narconon Suncoast Rehab! :o

But that's okay - it just reminds one that the fight isn't over...

Oh, and cool vid ST; reminds me of when I used to fly model airplanes, only fancier!

You're pretty good at flying that - it was cool the way it appeared as a shadow on the ground, toward the end.  Thanks for sharing. 

Ready for a reconnaissance mission?   >:D

 I now can carry a full sized video camera.My latest bird measures 45 inches propeller to propeller. Weighs about 25 pounds full loaded. The picture we took while flying it at a local park. The landing gear in in the "UP" postion so I can remotely rotate the camera 360 degrees unobstructed.

 Teh Tech. I use et! ;D
