  1. Fantastic day, thanks @mik333 and @bakersdozen
  2. looks like same shit for tomorrow so ive pulled the pin as well. im heading back with Doug for a movie night...
  3. great, so i wont be stuck there on my own, ill see you all there
  4. I am Mez, its not worth me coming over if its only a day trip
  5. whatever you decide will be good for me, lets try and get a good turnout this year..
  6. Yes this is a must, if you know a kitesurfer or someone that flys LEI's please take them with you for your first time at least. you need to know the safety stuff and what NOT to do
  7. @72hundredThe kites I fly are C hybrids, I find that they have a bit less side pull/lift than Delta shaped kites. I fly by myself and have no problem launching and landing q but they are a different beast and you really do need to know what your doing, is not the same as a foil kite. Personally I would only use my 9m to 18 knots my 7m up to 25 knots and then my 5m. These would be my upper limits. Definitely try and chat with @plummet as well.
  8. the same thing went through my head..
  9. My best Yeppoon trip ever. I buggied 27 out of the 29 days. Covered a total of 1600 kms. Max speed 79.3 kmh. Lots of days in the mid 70s but I couldn't crack 80. Thanks guys for all the great company and help. The only thing that would be better is if we had more people there! Till next year...
  10. Chicken man, say no more.. Rear view after finding a pothole
  11. A few shots to show you the condition of the beach. The creek is a non event this year, heres Chook not even getting his feet wet at half tide Sorry @igeighty, i havent got any more drone stuff, its been too windy..
  12. I'm fine, I didn't have an accident. I cracked my chassis. I've got another van but my problem is getting hand controls fitted in time for the meet. I'm still hoping to get there but not holding my breath..
  13. Not sure if I'll be able to get there either, i killed my van.
  14. Im up there now @Tiger37
  15. Litchi is supposed to do this, i think they call it a "Magic Leash" or something like that, i dont have it and havnt seen it used but ive read about it. You could also take your controller on the buggy and the drone should follow that.
  16. hey doug, im pretty comfortable with flying the drone, i mainly use Litchi, i love its waypoint missions and the fact that you can plan it all at home before you go out to fly, as for the active tracking, i havnt had much success with that yet. im using a samsung phone as my display, im thinking its not powerful enough and that may be half my trouble. Your all over the editing compared to me. i think itl be me picking your brains, not the other way round. When we get together we'll combine forces and work it out.
  17. thats one of favourite haunts when im up that way, it can be quite good. Where are you staying-Pinnacle Village caravan park?
  18. Had a good run over easter, it was pretty fast, only 4kmh off my PB. Unfortunately ive had to shoot home for some family issues so im leaving chook to have all the fun
