Hi Guys,

I may start a thread on Camperdown Fly in which happens every year here in Australia. It basically a slope soaring event that attracts people from all over the country. In any case back to the point of this post. On Australia day which was our last day there my mate did an FPV flight over the lake with his TriCopter but something went wrong! Its still in the lake and they are taking a 2 hour drive to camperdown to see if they can recover it.

It wend down with GoPro Hero HD, OSD System, FPV Camera etc

Update - Breaking News!

Tricopter recovered with one blade broken! Assuming at this stage it may have been the cause of the accident.

Thomas did this video after speaking to JB.
