Sunday was quite windy, but that didn't stop my friend and I from taking to the skies at the LSU Hilltop Arboretum. It's a 14 acre site in Baton Rouge, LA, with some neat architecture, and a little bit of terrain variation.
We had a LOT of crashes due to pilot error, and a few due to the weather. Trees without leaves are really hard to make out on the goggles! Sticks claimed many a propeller.
We also managed to get some pretty high quality pictures of the "LSU Special" in action!
Flying is a great stress reliever. Living in the city, traffic is bad. Working several jobs and going to school piles up, so it's nice to take a load off. Unfortunately I had to wait in some of that traffic to get locknuts to hold my props on tight! I busted a bunch of props and lost a normal nut I had used to hold my FPV250's props on when I tried to fly yesterday. Locknuts! Always use locknuts!
Rant aside, I hope you like this gypsy-punk inspired video. It's pretty dark, but my FPV board camera is very light sensitive, so I could still see bright as day. I'll make a video about that soon. Enjoy!
