Well, field report!


I went down to my preferred field (A large, open, mowed grass field, only to find just no wind at all.
I then moved to my second, and eventualyl third favorite spot, an ankly high grass field. It's just annoying because of the line getting cuaght, etc...

Eventually, I got it built, the lines properly (I thought) set up, etc...
Got it in the air, but BARELY.. really hard to keep it flying. I could see some twists in the line.. Long story short, somehow or another I had REALLLLY knotted the lines (first quad... :( )

I eventually packed it up, took it home, spent 20 mintes fixing the lines, and packed it up...
About an hour later, I decided I wanted another go... drove to my preferred field, and found wind!
I set it up super slowly/the correct way (staked the handles, pulled the lines out, etc, etc. Made sure every line was perfectly tangle free.

Eventually, I got it flying, and it was AWESOME. A few times hitting the ground, but that's about it. Once I got the fual line instincts gone, and the quad line "omg pull here to stop" instincts in their place, it was a blast. Only got to fly about an hour (impending rain,) but yeah, just got back, and it was great.

And even better, here's a (poor quality) cell phone pciture of it ready to go:

Wow, thanks guys! That was fast. You really didn't have to, but I certainly see why you were quick to be recommended here.

Thanks again.

Call Kent at AWindofChange and see what he can do, he will set it good.... :blue-music:


I'm sure I could, but it's only a dvd, don't want to really put that on them.

Well, I got it today, and got it assembled about an hour ago. Man, it is just gorgeous looking, I am very happy with the color combo. Thumbs up for AWindofChange, that was awesomely fast shipping.

My only issue:
The "How to Fly" dvd was cracked during shipping. Are the videos or instructions online somewhere, or?
