Racing and chasing...

I was wearing the brown undies that day, for reasons that will become obvious a couple of minutes into the video.

Awesome Symo !!

Great video real exciting at times too !!

You guys are getting good !!!

You'll have to come out to McCoy and do some racing we've been setting the gates up most weekends and flying round the course. We need you guys to come and log some times!!

The course is mostly set up the same it would be good to see who can do the fastest 5 laps !!

Thanks Jason.

Yep, will get back to the club soon. I've only been able to fly an hour or two here and there which has made it difficult for me to get to the club over the last few monts, but I'm keen... now that we've had a bit of practice it should be a lot more fun.

This one's only short and quite action-packed. Goes to show how much abuse some of these frames can handle. Needs sound for best effect.

You'll like this one, it's a shorty but a goodie. It shows how much abuse these frames can handle.

Thanks Jason! I'm shocked that the RunCam2 survived the impact. Mind you, it's in a 3D printed case so that helped. The protective case has a big crack right near the lens so I think I just dodged a bullet on that one. The wedge that it sits on was badly damaged. Can't believe that I didn't destroy it... Or the quad.

Only 1 badly damaged piece which I'll repair with epoxy and thin CF sheet, and replacement of 4 of the aluminium standoff posts.

Excellent it's good when you can see a way clear to get a good machine back in the air!!

You've got to be lucky some times.

You are flying pretty quick there!! I am crawling along by comparison! Frown

Definitely flying quickly, but slightly, just slightly, beyond my capabilities Rob! Hence the crash... When you're racing you tend to push yourself a bit and that time I pushed it too hard.

I was only running 3S during that little race. Perhaps if I was running 4S I may have had the power to punch above the fence. Nah, pilot error and ego I think!

Interesting concept: circular landing strip.


If you don't live on the edge, you take up too much space.

An interesting concept however highly flawed in my opinion.
The pilot in me is quite frankly surprised this is receiving research funding.
Thanks for posting the vid though. Any idea is better than no idea.
Cheers

Marco,

Here is the vid we discussed a while back, posted as requested. Note - I took your advice and shrunk myself while enlarging the slides so that the information is legible. The vid is actually uploaded at 4K to make it as readable as possible.

Hi guys. Here’s a YouTube video that is gonna make your hair stand on end that’s if you got any?,
This video is of a Druk Air landing at Paro, Bhutan. Not sure if it’s a BEA 100?.
Next time somebody complains about how runway show them this video.

Gravity sucks, or should I say, is the downfall of all things flying. It's the way it's controlled that makes the end memorable or not.
