1. Adam, Adele, Casey, and myself spent the weekend capturing the North Fork Championship kayak event on the North Fork of the Payette in Idaho. We brought along 2 Cinestar 6's, a Cinestar 8 with the new stabilization system on the 360 gimbal, a Hexa XL and a crawler truck. Cameras used were the Pansonic GH2, Sony CX760, Sony FS100, and GoPro Hero 2.

  2. This plane is very stable. I can hardly tell the difference between stabilization on and off. With my setup, it cruises at 7 amps and 25mph on a 4S system. I will be taking it to the desert in a few weeks for some long range flights. I'll probably put two 4,900mA 4S batteries in parallel for these flights.

    I had a brilliant idea to launch with the motor off, then give it power so there is no chance of the prop hitting the launchers hand. That didn't work so well as you'll see at the end of the video. Subsequent launches with power worked perfect and no hands were injured. It really is easy to launch and I was able to do it myself on later flights.

    I want to thank Dave (CaliDave) for launching and flying the chase plane and part of the ground footage. Also, thanks to Jeff for the rest of the ground footage.
