Unedited first day at the Asheville Model Aircraft club

Turns out there's a terrific model aircraft club that has a field in an unbelievable location just 20 minutes from my house. I've been looking for a place to practice flying and test systems to be ready for complicated production work .

The club has about 80 members, and in the 45 minutes we were there yesterday (a Friday) there were probably 20 airplanes in the air at different times. 

Also, it's hard to beat the view. Here's my unedited footage of the location.

The new venture

I picked the Iris+ back in June when I sent in my Part 333 Exemption to the FAA. I like it so much that I'm very likely to standardize my business on the 3D Robotics platform.

Yeah, people get paid to do this for a living. Now I do too :-)

Don't wait to be happy

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.

On attitude

A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.
