      Ok so I got to the saint early enough to walk to cats paw and take the quadcopter over the river to show the lines at 16 1/2 inches yesterday, as to my surprise Levi was coming down the river, So what better way to show the lines then to follow levi :-)!! I honestly don’t think he knew I was following him at the time he told me he heard a buzzing “BIG BEE’S out today”, he said haha. Ok so yeah I followed him through big drop, catspaw and double drop I’ve never seen Levi paddle before today He’s awesome! one of these day’s hopefully Ill be able to take a run with him and learn. well anyway’s here’s the video that I took of him. Now if your checking this at 4:45 am it’s prob not processed yet so you won’t be able to view it but check back in about 20 mins it should be done by then. I’m rushing the post due to lack of sleep 🙂 good job out there today levi!

      All my favorite lines ! Love the slide boof, straight line at Cats Paw ! Long time since we paddled grasshopper ! Save your euros, and get down here to the island buddy. Thanx for showing up back in October. I miss the Saint, and my MEGA Rockers ! Still getting used to the Burn III.

      Great coverage Jacob.  I can’t believe the quadcopter has that kind of range – Big Drop to Double Drop.  Where were you controlling it from?  Was this from Sat or Sun?

      Jw it was Saturday and I could actually have gone further if I would have flown higher and switched channels I can actually go approx 3 miles with the right. Height I was at catspaw rock below the observation deck.

        Thanks yeah Im going to be at the race with it. just note I won’t be flying down with boaters at the gates due to Im not dodging gates that was too nerve racking.. ill be posted at cats paw if you see me don’t be a stranger come up to me, ya’ll can look through the fpv goggles to see inside the quad copters view. Im also going to be taking video’s all weekend with it so if you wanna get a arial close shot going through cats paw and or double drop come by campsite 55 and we will work out a time and details.

      No denying it, the boy’s got style!  You’re lookin’ real good in the longboat, Levi. I put this up in my living room to show Michelle some of my favorite lines, perfectly executed.  So much for those top secret race lines…

      Good work at the controls jacobvipers!  The river sure looks pretty from up there.

        thanks Means alot to hear that it really does. you haven’t seen anything yet though 🙂 since it was such a good flight Ill be flying lower I just didn’t know the surroundings very well, race time it will be on! I know I really don’t have nothing to worry being on river So If you see me flying (anyone) Don’t pay attention to the quad-copter Give me some sick moves I have bought 5 batteries so Ill be able to take lots of flights race weekend!!!!
