"Oh Bessie" - Bessie Ridge

Had a wonderful day with the Family, and got to finish the evening off at Toro Park. Found a spot that wasn't congested with people, and took to the air. I added 5 D to Pitch, and it has made a good difference. Went to review my Black Box logs from the other day, to find the SD card unreadable, and didn't reinstall one before I went flying, so I guess I'll have to look at the Notch Filters another day.

Before I went flying I had done a thorough inspection of my Black Knight and noted that one of the arms was starting to delaminate, and the plastic reinforcement had cracked through. "The next crash could be the last" (as I stated on my Instagram), and yep, it was, taken out by a ghost branch while inverted in the middle of a roll. Overall after 6 months of abusing the )#(*$ out of this frame, it finally threw in the towel. I've thought about switching out frames, but I already have some spare parts for this one, and feel its worthy of the restoration ($35 in parts).
