Irvinebank Burn

Recently, I was able to take the Bixler to Irvinebank, and take some footage of the burnoff firefront. These images were pulled out with Blender, and stitched together with GIMP to make the panoramic image of the fire.

The landing after taking the shots was less than desirable, resulting in a cracked horizontal stabiliser. Trees surrounding a short strip made the the angle of descent greater, which resulted in a fast and hard landing. Hopefully I’ll be able to use FPV gear next to land and launch from a more appropriate location, and also get a live video feed for observers to watch.

Unfortunately, FPV gear that had recently arrived was faulty, having trouble maintaining a solid connection at any range. Next time…
