    That guy flew in the dark like he was afraid to tell his wife what he just bought.

    Matjaz always seems to do his test flight announcements in the dark. Very dramatic.

    I know the feeling well. Work all day trying like hell to get it all done before dinner, fail, eat dinner, work some more, finally get all green lights, realize it's nearly midnight, WTF, drive out to the ball field, deploy copter in glow of car headlights, launch, succeed, pack up, go home, sleep well...

    That was my Monday this week. :)

    And Matjaz looks soooo happy.
    Go ahead and do a solo compass calibration with that, then, eh? :)

    No need to stick a gimbal on that thing .... Just strap the camera man to the bottom with his camera. That should resolve the duel TX cross telemetry interference issue with the Graupners ;)

    Rather an unstable camera man under that than an unstable pilot controlling that :)

    This Hammer raises an interesting question ... when does big become too big?
