    Ross, Here is the GoPro mount I'm using. The aluminum bracket is 'home made'. I'm using it until I get the GoPro bracket I ordered on Ebay.

    Here is some photos of my latest Kitfox iv 1200
    A few of us headed down south of the South Island. JFA was on a shake down flight and went well. 11 1/2 hours flying time.
    The photos are the Poolburn Reservoir (3000 feet ASL)
    The next one is at the home of the Croyden Aircraft Company. Well known for restoring de Havilland, including a comet racer.
    A random farmers paddock for coffee
    the last one is looking along the Otago Peninsula and Port Chalmers
    We had 3 days of perfect flying weather. We are coming into winter and looking forward to some more settled weather

    Looks beautiful, it's a shame our planes will likely never get the chance to fly over New Zealand's beautiful landscapes.

    Hi Dusty
    My daughter was living at Waihi Beach and I got to know quite a few of the Sport Aviation community there. Flew around the North Island with Bob Byal and Murray Foster. Absolutely beautiful country to fly in. You guys are "spoiled rotten" over there!!
    Have Fun

    Dusty,
    One of my favorite places ever. Back when we visited, it was in my sailing days and was to visit a friend that helped us crew a very high tech racing sailboat on a pacific crossing. We stayed in his home in Lyttelton We saw the ball drop at the time ball station then walked to the site for a up close look. Our visit was during the era of the "Wizard of Christchurch". I could go on and on, but the visit is a treasured memory. To see it as you see it would be a dream. My friend, Geoff, now lives in Christchurch. Thanks for the pictures.

    Default Lake Hume

    A perfect early winters day and our friend col (Super Cub) rang to suggest we go and have a picnic at the nearby Lake Hume. Didn't take too much to twist Gayle and my arms! Another friend who has a property on the side of the lake came over with his ATV with 4 cappuccinos! A great day out and only 30 mins flight from home.

    The Kitfox fitting snug under the arm of its big brother!

    Nice video. I followed a youtube next and got to you doing a loop.It looked like a nice easy manouver and not an excess of stick pull. True or false.

    Dusty I see 912 on the side of your plane and you have the same large tires I will be using. Curious about your performance numbers. Cruise takeoff distance and so on.
