      Chuck, your description of seeing your instructor 1100 ft below you, instantly transported me back a short time ago to my first solo.....a little scary.....a little exciting but most of all...........LIBERATING! Thank you for that.

      Congratulations Chuck!

      I had a lot going for me on my solo. 1. Great CFI. 2.We had been practicing landings for two days prior. 3.Most of my training has been in the XT I purchased. It was a little surreal. It was late in the day and I really wasn't ready to call it quits for the day. I asked Doug over the radio "I know it's getting late, but can we go around one more time?" His reply was "how about I get out and let you go around?" I kind of hesitated a little then said back "Ok I'm ready." Then off I went.

  • Greetings again Monty... .do you have a youtube link to make it easy for me, or do I need to sneak into the dark side again?

    Woooow! Yes I have a similar problem with USB power too. All Day Battery is great solution. I need to find out one for mine AEE cam.

    I have never kept full throttle so high. Usually I reduce throttle at 180-200ft. With hard and crying heart I kept it to 1300ft... next was joy and peace... :)

    Jeff, it could be voltage drop related. USB uses 5V and it will drop if you use long thin wire. I use the product "Brunton All Day Battery". It extends your gopro battery life to 7.5 hours even during you use wifi. That is the real duration I...

    My GoPros are just running on their internal batteries.  I turn the cameras off when I am not recording to stretch the batteries. I can get 2hrs of recording time in the summer, 1 hour in winter.   I used to have a long USB cable to...

    I did the engine oil leak test. It was first flight after repair engine. The owner of LZDV airport told me: You are crazy! You did the engine test and you used it at full throttle with 45┬░climbing... How else could I do the test?

    Nice video and nice Trike Jeff :-). Are your GoPros running just on battery and if so how long do you normally get when shooting video like that? Cheers
  • white eagle commented on a video Rio Manzano
    Jeff great to see another one of your very impressive videos. Great views of the rio grande and manzano mountains.  Thanks

    During the summer monsoon season in New Mexico, we get near perfect flying conditions every morning. I loaded up two GoPros, one on each wing tip, and headed out. I headed out just before sunrise and saw a balloon a few miles away. I went in...

It extends your gopro battery life to 7.5 hours even during you use wifi. That is the real duration I tested. I'm very happy with it. But it fits only newer versions of gopro cameras (3 and 4). If you use these cameras, I highly recommend it. You can get it from ebay by searching "Gopro Brunton All day". The quality is exceptional and reasonably priced.
