What a fun video Steve. At least put a Stetson and some spurs on your quadcopter if you're going to use it to replace the iconic American cowboy


Loved Zim's video. great stuff
But
For me, the problem was the opposite.
Neighbours "borrowing" our cattle and for that to drift through a mob of cattle collecting those which belong to you , you still need the old quadroped.

Enjoy Steven! I generally go straight to the top of the line gear by default, but couldn't think of a reason to do that when deciding on a new Mac. The 27" iMac loaded ends up to be so much less expensive than a loaded Mac Pro, and it rocks. I've got one at home and one at HQ and I love them!

Headed out to catch a helicopter, the clouds finally parted.

A loaded 27" iMac is my main editing machine, too. It hasn't choked it yet, though 4K video comes close.

Took the D810 out for a little aerial practice yesterday: this is Bear Peak southwest of Boulder, with the high Arapahoe peaks in the background. I was shooting with the new AF-S 24-120mm f/4 G ED VR. It's a solid performer, but no 70-200mm f/2.8, nor yet the 85mm f/1.4...

This is Boulder with the Flatirons in the background, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology campus at lower left, home of the nation's official timekeeper, the 'atomic clock'.

You don't see many floatplanes in Colorado, because it's illegal to land on public waters in the state. This DHC-2 Beaver with a turbine conversion seems to be local, though: I see it around from time to time. It's a long climb up to the cockpit! I shot this while taxiing out for takeoff, so pardon the background clutter. Darn V-tail Bonanza...

Something a bit different. Air pistol meets a pile of sugar cubes.

Glenn, I think it would be really neat to see the Blue Angels perform alongside the micro jet.

There's just something about a pilot......







.....even one in a stinky old crop duster turned tow plane

Just a quick shot thru a window with a potato, but I thought it was cute.

or they could form up on the ex-Navy warbird glider that I fly. They can hold 60 kts, right?

Hi Colin:
Youre right about that! Justin (microjet pilot) was the flight instructor for two of the current Blue Angel pilots when they were all stationed at NAS Kingville, and we tried back in March to do just that at the Kingsville airshow but the WX didnt allow it.

We had to settle for Rob and Greg a couple days later
