I really want to fly. I really really do... You see the thing is...
I just recently repaired my quad. And it's not that I am afraid that I am going to kill it.. well that's part of it, but there is snow on the ground and it is very soggy and wet out, but it's not just that... I would go outside in my driveway where there is a bit of snow free ground that I could easily launch and land from, but because I do not quite trust my repair yet I think I am going to wait. The reason is just out of caution.. I am afraid that if my repair does not hold my quad will fly out of control and end up hitting one of my neighbors homes or vehicles... Don't want to "Ruin the Hobby". I did a quick hover test last night, and everything was fine.. but I just don't trust it quite yet. Of course I could always walk through the snow a mile into the woods and fly in the field I usually fly, but talk about snow soggy and wet... it's a disaster waiting to happen. So... I will wait until the snow melts and the ground dries out a bit. Sure I could waterproof my drone but honestly we do not get a lot of snow around here, just a few inches here and there and I really don't feel like putting in the effort. So as I said.. I will wait until its a bit drier... But I REALLY want to fly! Ugh!..
Whats up folks and welcome to my first blog! If you don't know who I am, allow me to introduce myself. I am Dennis Bosher AKA TripleCap AKA CAP. I am a designer, gamer and FPV drone pilot. I have been into computers for most of my life, which lead me to a carreer in graphic design. That carreer allowed me to afford a couple hobbies like gaming and FPV flying. I have been a gamer for as long as I can remember and only recently have put it aside to focus on my new passion of FPV Flight. I have a Youtube account with over 250 videos. I upload at least once a week but usually much more frequently than that. I try to fly every day and I usually document every flight with a video. If I am not uploading a video its because I didn't fly that day. However many times even if I don't fly, I will try to find a reason to upload something. It's not that I have a ton of fans or anything, I just enjoy sharing my experiences with the world.
As of this moment I am gronded due to several inches of snow that has fallen over the last few hours, but don't expect that to hold me back. Chances are I will find some way to share an experience in some form or another.. Come to think of it, this blog is serving that purpose right now.
