It has been about two years since I’ve flown the old Phantom 1, which has just been hanging on the wall as more of a piece of art. It was quite fun and I started off perfectly, by crashing it into the neighbor’s house. LOL. I figured it out.

Fake: Guy Chilling In A Flying Hammock Drone

Hats off to the drone pilot who thought of this. Below is a video all over social networks of a guy “chilling in a flying hammock drone.

The only problem with this is that hexacopter drone setup of that size could probably only weigh 12-15 pounds, bird and payload included. So unless the person and the hammock weigh in at about 5-7 pounds, this one’s a fake.

Fly on!

I miss flying

I took basically about a year off from flying because of all the harassment I was getting from people, the bad press, the FAA and so-on.  I’m aching to fly.  I haven’t checked any of my batteries so they may all be toast.

I hope to fly soon.  I loved it when I did it and really enjoyed getting incredible photos and video.

Hell, I have a brand new racer that’s never been flown. I guess that means it has never been crashed either!
