Made my first rounds full FPV at the Quad Track beneath GasTank Tree......with David Cook and Mike Kopf yesterday...really fun and great company.

I am nowhere near the quad pilot as David and Mike are....they have made some kind of "arrangement" with the surrounding trees.  I however...am still paying Homage to them while trying to make peace with the trees......it seems for now....the trees and I are at war

There are two major quad eating trees on either end of the track that sometimes reach out and try to knock down any nearby 4-rotor aircraft. Some of the tree limbs are invisible until you are about 2-feet away and are unable to avoid them. I call those kinds of tree limbs "Ghost Limbs" because they appear out of nowhere.

I also slammed into a ghost tree at the hairpin turn on the west end of the track. It was that little dude on the inside of the turn.
I hit so hard, it ripped the balance plug right out of Paul's Lipo I was borrowing.
