A great little time-lapse video of aircraft approaching Memphis with thunderstoms in the area:
A quick trip to Annemasse (LFLI) in the A36. More photos at GZLOJ.net
To France with some friends for the 2014 Le Mans Classic weekend. I filmed our Gîte with the Phantom.
Preparing for the Round The Island Race 2014:
Our bonkers friends in Devon, Simon and Mandy, kindly organise a Sports Weekend every year. This time I filmed it with the Phantom 2 Vision+.
And it’s still dry!
For our first big trip in the A36 we flew from Denham (EGLD) near London, to Mali Losinj (LDLO) Croatia, for the EuroGA.org fly-in.
While there I took the chance to fly the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ quadcopter – some footage is included here.
The Bonanza is finally airworthy! The engine has been zero-timed and we’ve replaced the Garmin GNS530 with a Garmin GTN750. Also added are an ADL120 datalink weather box and a PMA8000BT Bluetooth Audio panel.
For our first major trip we joined the EuroGA.org fly-in to Mali Losinj in Croatia. Strong headwinds gave us a 6 hr 5 minute flight outbound, but with tip tanks installed we landed with 37 US gallons of fuel, over three hours reserve. After a day and a half socialising and flying the Phantom 2 Vision+ (video to follow), we returned to the UK in glorious weather.
A short flight over Marlow in the rain.
New toy: DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ with gyro-stabilised camera. Confused? Let go of the controls and it comes to a GPS hover. WiFi signal lost? (800m). It flies back to the start point and lands. Wonderful fun. Each battery lasts about 25 minutes (get three!).
First flight last night ably assisted by expert RC fliers Andy and Tony.
How Far Have I Flown?
