Not ready yet for high altitude fun but getting better at landing. Harder than learning to ride a britbike! Not sure I would want to ride a bike via transmitted video signal though!

Yes, learning too but the 4.3" tft video screen strapped with mag visor lens to my head in video is only view I have also the view recorded above. It means watching for people constantly as well as tree. Great for memory since you have to know what is behind you. Great tech, it is called FPV rc (first person view) and it can and is being done with planes and quadcopters. There was a granpa and grandson that showed up from wedding I was at. I built mine from parts so it is a bitsa but gps and auto return is available. My range is only 1-2km but some are flying uhf sys out to 20km! My quadcopter weighs a chubby 1.4kgs.
Here is one of the ultimate flyers for fpv quads:

-under $800. in gear to get started right, $500. on the cheap if you can solder smd chips. Hope to get out to bike racing soon for aerial vid. $1150 for gps waypoint auto flights.
