Looks like a great day for flying--either the RV12 or the drone! Great video. Thanks for sharing.

Great video! It's so green there too! For us dry desert people, that place looks like a landscape from another planet.

My drone operator wants to make another video - he thinks he can keep the airplane centered in the frame better with a little practice. We'll give it a go when the weather improves. This summer we have had no shortage of rainfall...

Cooler temps and lots of rain. Please FWD out west where we have wildfires like crazy all over the place and record setting high temperatures. Expecting 103+ at KSFF today. What may be "normal" in places like Texas and Arizona is WAY out of normal for the Pacific Northwest.
