Went to another Drift Central event. Lots of cool cars, and awesome people, can't wait until next month and #HappyNewDRIFT

Special Thanks to Drift Central for Media Access, and the Drivers, for without you, this video wouldn't be possible!

Live Broadcast of #MerryDRIFTMAS


A live broadcast from the #MerryDRIFTMAS Event by Drift Central, as presented by myself.

Notes: This is my first LIVE stream (and thus a learning experience). For some reason my USB Capture Card wasn't wanting to work (even though I tested it prior to the event), and thus I wasn't able to provide live aerial footage as planned, or hookup my Nikon to get you a zoomed and stable view (and the reason why I ended the stream when I did). Also, I was using a GPD Win as the PC, which has some limitations, but as you can see was feasible to run this stream, and I still had plenty of battery. I look forward to trying this again at HappyNewDRIFT!

Hopefully then I will figure out a way to run multiple cams at once

(Note to self, verify the USB Capture Card and other Peripherals are working before starting the stream.)

A little bit of everything (FPV Soup) - Maiden VLOG


Come hang out and enjoy some FPV Soup with me! Decided to try my hand at a more VLOG style format, instead of the regular flight videos, don't worry, still plenty of flight footage.

Come ride-along with me on an epic day, where I fly 4 different (and new) spots, such as a bridge, wind turbine, train cars & track, and finish it off the day at different spot than normal for "Bando Land".

All footage was shot with my GoPro Hero 6 at 4k 60fps. All stabilization was done in post (apologies for any distortion it may have caused).

The Gate Was Open


After spending the afternoon re-tuning my quad, I've managed to dial it in tighter, but still needs some adjusting. Right now it is finding a balance on the TPA, while keeping the lower throttle range feeling locked in. I still think I can get it better, but definitely feel it is an improvement, at least control wise.

Wanted to find a new place to fly, and proceed to drive a little further south than last time, and found this farm equipment yard that looked like it could be fun to fly, and it was! Ripped two packs, and here is the result.

Not much time left before I won't be able to fly my drone after work, and will either have to do quick "spurts" during lunch, finding someplace to fly when its dark, or wait for the weekend. So... enjoy!
