    The ol' Penguin on 3S. Gets the job done.

    The Penguin is a nice looking plane. I'm checking it out now.

    I moved from a Bixler to the Penguin after my Bix died out here in the islands. Like the Bix, the Penguin flies in a very docile, predictable and forgiving manor. Where it accels past the Bix is in payload capacity and endurance, and the kit is of higher quality - it's a bigger, different class of airplane. Can easily accommodate all your avionics and video gear, flight cam pan and tilt, HD recording (+p/t), plenty of battery, and more.

    I would certainly recommend the platform to anyone looking for a more easy-going FPV experience

    Don't know if it counts, I could scan and load a few of my photos of when I was there back in 93-95. Get to see how many fliers are still out there from the Kauinui Marsh. Have some good memories digging planes out of the swamp just beyond the runway. H3 was still under construction at the time.

    Aloha all! It doesn't look like this thread is active, but thought I'd post anyway and see if anyone responds. Was out on Oahu recently and did a good bit of flying with my M2P. Tried to reach out to Pushjerk while I was there, but without success. Anyway, here's some of what I shot. I'll check back to see if anyone enjoyed it. Hope to hear back from anyone there. Miss living in the islands! ~Wailer
