Remind me to not watch my early course videos in the middle of the night when I can't sleep. That cat is gone, the discs are all gone, only thing left is me and the course (only fricking 2 years ago too). Guess that's better than nothing. /sentimental

Man that was awesome Jeremy. I wish every course on here had a video like that to go with the reviews.

Be patient, my brother in law just got one along with a GoPro. We've done some test flights at Banklick and Turtlecreek so far. Probably start making some videos this summer.

My father and I used the winch on his jeep to move a nice rock today. I'm very happy with the new feature on hole 8.

It definitely wasn't a prop coming off. It took off and went about 1000+ feet away from where we were. It was only about 15' off the ground at the time. It went another 200 or 300 yards into the lake, It hovered over the water for a while, then descended into the lake. It wouldn't respond to controls. The control system had some sort of problem. You can google dji phantom flyaways and see that this is more common than most would expect.

We didn't even start off very close to the lake. I'll likely get a replacement, but I'll keep distances from large bodies of water, may add some buoyancy to it just in case.

On the course development news, we get to clean up our course for a wedding that's happening on the property. He proposed Sunday night, and apparently can't wait longer than thus weekend. Someone jokingly suggested our place as a location, and he and the bride both thought it a good plan. So were going to have a couple of holes that will be much better looking than the others.

That's funny.

"Wanna get married"
"Sure. When?"
"Umm....this weekend?"
"OK. Where?"
"Ummm...I know some woods where guys throw plastic around."
"Cool it's a date."

yea those things are fairly light usually, a couple pieces of foam under the frame could probably float one.

That may not be far from the truth.
