Went back up to Williams Arizona and shot the Grand Canyon Railroad ALCO # 29 over two days this past weekend while they were doing the annual pumpkin patch run. Had prior permission to fly over the area which helped when someone questioned what I was about to do. After that was given access to the employee lot to launch from.

It was pretty windy both days, Healthy Drones said one gust hit 38 mph. I know the last day I had to use speed mode to even move into the wind. With the wind, power lines and a zip line nearby I kept it at a safe altitude. That kept me from getting some of the close up shots I had wanted.

The opening scene across the field was with a tail wind and clocked in at 62.5 ground speed. New record for me.

A nice video FlyGary, but there's only one thing missing (and it's not been invented - yet) - that lovely smell of steam.

Does anyone know if there's a company working on a "Smellyvision" monitor? ;)
