    Flying at the Des Moines Marina in Washington. Wind was low to non-existent that day. It made for some great flying.

    Tell you this is my favorite. Without spotter? Look like people just walked up talking to you while you had goggle on.
    Did you look up in Google Earth how far did you fly?

    Hi there - Glad you liked it! :)

    I did not look up how far I went. I usually try and keep it under 800 feet to be safe. Usually the video feed from the transmitter starts fading out at around 750 feet. This is enough to tell me not to fly any further.
