    WARNING!!!
    It's your choice, but be forewarned! Did all preflight check lists and it was a GO! Well, didn't last very long.. Lost Coms, and she was acting strange, clicked her into ATTI and brought her home safely, NOT A SCRATCH!! Beings I am an avid Thunderstorm watcher, we were in a Tornado Watch and then the Warning was issued not long after. Grabbed my gear not long after the batteries were charged and headed out to the mountain.... Long Story Short!! It's your choice, it's your Toy, but I was Very Fortunate!! Fly Safe, and keep EM rolling...[​IMG][​IMG]

    I will not fly if there are CB formations up there!
    Lightning can easily reach out over 20 miles from a storm cloud.
    I like to play safe (and keep what remaining hair I have :p)

    Could you please refrain from posting non sensical posts at random places all over the forum?

    If you have an issue with the amount of alleged spam notifications you are receiving please send a PM to Jacob who is site administrator for the forum.
    A simple search under members and then staff members would have given you this information instead of posting rubbish all over numerous threads which I have now deleted.

    Thank You.

    You are getting repetitive on this comment... In various threads. You can kill all your notifications in seconds. Are you really too lazy to do that?
