What a difference a day makes! Yesterday flying at the beach in shorts (vid.) and today there are snow blizzards all over the country! Enjoy.

You are so funny it is almost laughable, did you ever fly EDF at the beach? It's magic.

Understandable considering the packed sand near the water would make a very smooth runway.

Just fitted in new power set up giving me 1/1 power to weight on 8S. 12blader on 1400kv. Short flight today in very hot and windy conditions. Not much fun but living beach lifestyle you can't be too picky. (latest action, vid.)

The worse landing with my Phantom over the years flying in miserable windy conditions. It's easy to take off but another story to bring it back! Enjoy the gale.

Fantom on the perfect dead calm day.

Flying it in dead calm today it's a different story, magic!.
