    Today the weather cooperated almost nearly ideally for a flight.
    Mind you it is February and most of the country is freezing!
    While in central Florida the temperature is almost 75 degrees, a few clouds around and wind under 10mph.
    So got my butt off the chair and went flying at a local city park.
    As you'll see, the park was busy with kids playing soccer and baseball.
    My first flight went off without a hitch. So I did a second flight.
    When I got home I found out the first flight did not record. Something jogged the camera loose and all I got was a black screen.
    I wanted to do a third flight, but the bird got within a foot of the 150 foot mark I set it fly at and would never go to the next waypoint so I aborted the flight.
    I figured there must have been enough turbulence up there to keep it from reaching the point.

    So come on down and get out of that nasty weather!
