    Hi All, Here's the harsh cuts of some of the flights I did around the beautiful Cornish garden recently. Warning there is some close proximity flying to myself and spotter (not trying to feed the trolls here) that I suggest no one else do as it was very risky but we both accepted full...

    Hi All, Such a beautiful day for a quick FPV flight around the ruins of a building sat next to the River Tamar. Some tight spots to fly though but I do like a challenge. Some extreme jello effect at the start but I think that was due to only having about 10% throttle and plummeting to the ground...
