Shadow Woods woods video

This was a quick video flight from the woods at the end of my street. Woods at the end of your street? Yep, I’m very fortunate that 4 houses down from me is a 12 acre wooded section right in my subdivision.

Nice trails, I love it, and so do my dogs. You can see the trails we walk in the video.

Marsh View Park, Oakland County, MI


The sun was shining today and it was about 75 degrees. It felt amazing for October in Michigan, so I headed out for a lunchtime drive. I’ve seen this park before, and flew from here a few years back, but my how it has changed. It’s called Marsh View Park, and it has several soccer fields, basketball courts, hiking trails, and even an archery center.

First flight with brushless gimbal, Oakland University, Rochester, MI

This flight was on my previous quad.  It was the inaugural flight of my first brushless camera gimbal.  A brushless gimbal uses brushless servo motors to stabilize the camera. This is a 2 axis gimbal, so roll and pitch are stabilized, but not yaw.  It is VERY cool technology.  I can’t wait till 3 axis gimbals start coming out.
