Yeap now you can start riding the center grass down that road then hope over the fence ziz and a zazen thru a few hay rolls and then a inverted weave of the power poles. Looks as if you are getting cracked up. I love a cold clear day seems as if you could fly forever if ya fingers could stand it.
Good Job

Oh I cracked up this plane for sure!I have its final flight before a massive rework on film.
You ought to git a lil Tx Rx cam combo and slap it on a bird you are friends with.Why then all you need is a little screen of some kind.If you feel like dropping the $$ on a pair of video goggles..well heck.You will be set for short range.(stock 5.8 gear got us bout 250m)If you build good antennas then you can go much further.Now you can sit in your car with the heater on.=)
