    I flew just over 3400 ft distance at 300 ft altitude. Awesome! Now to figure out that record data to video thing. Lol

    Only a windsurfer and a pedestal to keep the RC still.

    Long range flying is Very addictive !
    I fondly remember when I thought a 1 mile out flight was a long distance (!)
    Now I'm pushing my limits at 21,000' each way...

    Where is the best spot to get a windsurfer? There is so many out there and I just want to get one that isn't cheap and works pretty well.
