Weekend Flying

Some absolutely beautiful flying this weekend, the weather couldn't have been better for visibility and winds.  

Just did a quick hop up to EQY for lunch and to test out my new GoPRO mount and camera.  While I like the placement of the new mount I'm not sold on it's sturdiness.  I do like that it's just a clamp and not affixed to the plane however.

I also toyed around with recording in 4K at 60FPS so both of these videos are extremely high definition.  However the file sizes are huge which makes editing them a real pain, so not sure I'll record more at this resolution, but they look nice.



This was a morning flight up to EQY and it was very smooth, no bumps at all.


This was a later afternoon flight and while the sky was clear it was much more bumpy and I had to fight the winds all the way back.  Luckily it's a short hop.  I tried to find some cleaner air at 3k with no luck so just had to ride it out till LKR.

Quick flight to MEB

 So just out doing some local flying, was wanting to try and fly to CRE but the clouds were just dropping too much to risk getting stuck so instead just made it over to MEB to check out some of the old commercial airliners parked there.
