    While waiting for my gimbal parts to arrive, I was asked to do daily filming/video in a huge horse arena of the week-long set up of an indoor equestrian simulated mountain trails obstacle course, the only such course indoors in the country. I am doing daily updates/additions and modifications to the basic video and it is posted on the Eugene Horse Center website.
    In this case everyone is on the steep side of flying/filming/video processing/website-displaying the learning curve. But now is when it is happeninand this is the only chance until next year.

    Today, flying/filming while the work was going on, my Phantom took on the backhoe/loader.......


    And survived!!!! I even finished the circuit flight.

    No harm....no foul, One.....tough.....bird.
