Default Happy Friday Fly 4.5 Miles

Happy Friday Morning Wattflyer friends.

How about taking a trip across the country side before work or maybe after. Travel with me 4.5 miles non stop to the Carsons Family Haunted farm house.

Where you flying by a downlinked video signal or did you have to follow along in a vehicle?. It did not look like you would have been able to follow along that easily.
4.5 miles seems to far for most small video systems to transmit.

Is this a SlowStick?.

Hi, The plane is the GWS Pico F Stick with the bluewonder motor and 11.1 lipo. The camera is the flycam and yes we are following the plane, you are not the first person who has asked this which means my objective was met..it was meant to look like the G plane is flying solo. The camera it's self is playing the whole trip with no ground control. Push record and fly.

You can go to the parkflyer section here and I am showing how this was done along with the construction of the plane. Most dont notice but when I arrive at the Carson haunted farm, pay close attention as you will see a SUV pull up in the lower corner of the screen and I get out to land the plane. On the landing I am standing at the end of the drive. This was a mistake in the film as the follow vehicle was to never be shown, but.

The other vehicles shown in the film are passing our follow car as we are only moving 20 mph following the GWS. I have video from the top of the follow car I will put up shortly.
