37 consecutive days of FPV flying

On December 23 I maidened my Kadet Sr that I converted to electric from glow. It was a blast.

Next day I flew it again after I made some tweaks. The day after that I flew with a friend who was dying to FPV. Next thing I knew I had a little streak going. So I kept it going... and kept it going... for 37 days!!

It was a blast, I learned a lot and really raised my confidence in my equipment and its reliability.

Here is a compilation video of all 37 days flying FPV! I hope you like it.

Max's Consecutive-days FPV Streak: 37 days!!
In winter, no less.

Ended: Jan 28, 2013

Flight Statistics:

# Days Flown: 37 Consecutive Days

# Flights Flown: 74

Total Air Time: 28 Hrs, 7-1/2 Minutes

Longest Flight: 40 Minutes

Total Distance Traveled: 1088 Kilometers (closed circuit)

In Day, Night, Snowflurries, Mist, Grey Days, Sunny Days, Calm Days and in Gale-force Winds.
... and in any combination thereof.

Right now I am working on "Project Waterproof" to make my FPV quad 100% waterproof. That way when it rains 24 hrs, I will still be able to sneak in an FPV flight

Wait 'till summer gets here. I'll try for longer.
