Here's link video from one of my morning flights near Santa Clarita. Made some dumb errors on this flight - I should probably consider an OSD so I can monitor my battery voltage. This spot has a lot of wifi issues, but has convenient road access. It's used by the local FPV flyers from time to time, but I'm starting to find the Z!! too big and fast for an area this small, I think.
I apologize for the length, it's barely edited.

haha great thread/build/comments. I really like your style Pookyjuice. just the entertainment I needed after not being able to sleep (too much Coke Zero, I think).
You have come a long way with your flying skills. I commend you.
That's plenty of room for the Z2 - try changing channels on the Vtx?
I had you in mind when i was doing the initial test flying of my new wing. It went into the ground quite a bit till the cg position was fixed, glad i built it indestructable. You've really come a long way and the skills are showing, great job. The wash area you fly in, not too far from Magic Mountain is it?
Very enjoyable thread Pookyjuice. I'd love to have an area like that to fly in. You're even doing some low level flying - nice. My path to FPV isn't as quick as yours. Still flying my EZ.
Yeah, stalling or flightcam black out is probably not the best low voltage indicator. LOL I PM'd you a link to a very cheap OSD, but I have not experience with it. I'm sure you could get plenty of suggestions from this forum.
Yeah, this was a great thread. I have no RC plane experience either and was going to get an IYF 44 to learn, but this thread made me decide I should just get a ZII. I think I will just roughly cut out compartments and grooves for future FPV equipment if it can survive learning LOS flying on it then just cut through the lam to access the compartments when I want to install the FPV gear.
