An evening flight in a Van's RV-7A just to try out some new camera angles and filters. Then we noticed that both the panel mounted Garmin GNS 430 and Garmin 696 were not pulling up any GPS satellite signals. We spent the rest of the flight trying to get the units come up. We're still not sure what happened and why both units failed to lock into any GPS signals. Any ideas?

This is a "How to" video showing the parts and steps needed in making a stabilized PVC pole with weights in the bottom, allowing smoother videoing using the GoPro Hero3+. This video also contains shots of an unfinished RV-9A fuselage, Jimmy Dolittle's Stinson Reliant and Bob Roger's Mustang II. Thanks for watching!
We flew into Hicks Airfield in Fort Worth, Texas, and had a great Hamburger at the Beacon Cafe and Country Store. It was the best 100 dollar hamburger we've ever had (and it didn't cost a 100 dollars!). Highly recommended.
We flew into the Cedar Mills Airport (3T0, 3,tee, zero), located on Lake Texoma which has a (nice) 3000' east/west grass runway. We had a great lunch at the Pelican's Landing Waterfront Restaurant, which is about a 10 minute walk overlooking the harbor. Great food! We love the new GoPro Black+!
