"I think there's not much new info in this. they are obviously waiting for the trial and for us to present evidence. the interesting part is the part where they say that the 2007 policy compliance is not mandatory."
Jack Crossfire, the point is everything in between is flown. The last mountain takes 1hr from the launch spot to the peak, the quad does it in 3 minutes and can see it from perspectives never seen before.
Crasher, no, it's not. The bat…"
Taking my TBS DISCOVERY for a long range flight across my backyard alpine wonderland. How do you manage extreme long range with quadrotors? With some careful pre-flight planning and a battery-swap-team on the mountain!
"haha, that was RiSCyD flying btw :) I really enjoyed the runs down the building as well, especially with the slower wing it gives more "airtime". next step should definitely be doing acrobatics during the descents :)"

"It's hilarious to read your comments Paul Mather. You know, for someone so vocal, you sure fail to even get the basics right (like who was flying). Last I checked the most irresponsible thing an FPVer ever did was fly over a metal statue, no? Is thi…"

So we packed a bunch of prototype planes and went to Thailand to do a bit of flying. Much like our Road Trip series but a bit shorter, we'll be showing the ins and outs of modern airplane design - and the fun that can be had while being completely s…
