    Sand in Your Undies at Kingston SE 2019

    Had a look at the clay pan this morning with John and it is very good. We had a tiny bit of rain overnight and the surface is only slightly tacky in places. Over 100m out and I only have clay one one thong. give it a day or too and it should be rock hard. https://youtu.be/Ok6WCpOK88Y tje beach is super smooth and the wind is onshore.

    Super Tracks - video

    that video gave me a tingle... it is seriously an amazing viewpoint and an excellent showcase of the tech.. I assume that you film in 360 all the time and then adjust the shots, zoom, angles in post production ? from what I have seen of the things is that they record everything. which would give you so much room to pick and choose at a later date in regards to setting up shots and all.. brilliant mate thank you. .. edit.. where the f#ck is the camera attached ?? @roblukin Lokk at THIS ----v come to think of it the more times I watch the video there more I am scratching my head. not only the camera angles and where is the camera actually located, But also how stable a fixed object is. look at 4:55 and the kite. the kite is rock solid and the bike is bobbing. is the stabilisation in post ? and if so. how can we get some.. :0

    the only downside is that they are not three wheel tracks we went to shallow inlet and flew the cameras around. The stingray holes are pretty noticeable too/

    MEFM heading home

    yep, its small 2.5mm carbon tube that slides through the spreader and is kept taught by the bungy and line, not sure if this is what give them the unique flying feel, but it Is pretty neat The black one was a shop model that was left over stock from the kite shop when it closed in 96. so I took it home for dad. he loaned it back to me last year. the middle yellow one I got from Prawnstar and is fairly well used,, but very much flyable. and the top one came from Kevin and is pretty much brand new still. I would age them all at 1996-1998 I used to have a very early one it was grey and white, it had vented panels and was very very nice to fly in all winds. one day I will find another vented one somewhere. I also had a microlite version it would fly in zero wind with a bit of walking. You can fly them at Kingston. I promise you will be hooked.

    An immaculate example of a classic deep dish kite. Thanks @KaoS for the opportunity to give this baby a new home.

    Multi-Rotor Thread

    Follow me mode, is the mode I need to try, however it is a bit dicey to have to carry the remote onboard in order to be tracked. Maybe the GT, could have its one special drone box to hold your gear ") and while in this mode the mavic has a top speed of 10m/s or 36kph (22.3mph) anyway, follow me mode is the one I was thinking about. I am yet to try it. and have watched a ton of youtube about it this week. here is one that breaks it down.

    My best M8's last kite

    Kobi is the furry one ? he sure can keep up and clearly loves it. I love how he stays upwind too.. where about are you bugging in Sydney Dave ? if you are up for a road trip, Sandy Point in November Dogs welcome. disclaimer.. I called kobo a 'he' as I didn't check for tackle or none
