Default My first solo flight after transition training.

Finally I can contribute to this thread. After a long extensive rebuild of my RV6A, I flew solo last Sunday. What a thrill!

Default Vegas for the Pac-12 Championship.

With the weather looking perfect for an RV-10 flight from Salt Lake to Las Vegas to see our Utah Utes play in the Pac-12 Championship, we loaded up and spent the weekend there. I think all of Utah came to that game.
2 hour flight was so smooth and easy, landing at Henderson, NV.
Utah played great and won their first championship. Rose Bowl against Ohio St next!
Also saw the show KA on Saturday night which was cool. As an engineer, I was watching the stage most of the time and was not surprised to have a 20 minute break during the show when the stage broke. Such a complex stage.
GO UTES!







Landing at the Salt Lake Star Port. (Cool reflection from visor coming into Salt Lake)

Next time I go to KACK, I'll have to bring my jet!
My in-laws summer on Nantucket. I cannot wait to get my RV done and fly in there. Looks like a great day!

Default New camera installed

Since I am now flying - finally, I mounted a camera to prove to my friends who said I would never finish my plane! It only took 9 years!!! It is a gopro Max 360 and it is pretty amazing. I am still learning how to use the software to edit and I need to align it better but it still gives fun video.

This is on a flight over my house (2:16) and part way back to the airport. It is pretty boring to watch but it shows some of what the camera can do. I cant wait till I get a flyable day to make another video!

And Scott - great pictures and family. Have a Merry Christmas! We will be in SLC for Christmas this year with one of our daughters and her family.

Yes, itís an amazing camera. Very interesting. Thanks for posting. Incidentally, do you by any chance have a heavy left wing?

Do you have a feel for how long a video (in time) you can make with this camera on it' sown internal battery power?

How did you control it - did you run wires out the wing? Or is it done with a Smartphone?
