1 year Raptiversary went great. I'm beat up, I definitely cut the lip too steep. Learned some hard lessons, like landing in a dead stop from 10 feet up sucks....bad.....and there's a dip in the comfort/speed graph which means you have to just send it or keep beating yourself up.....further up the hill you fly, the less you fall to land.....which is exactly the kind of conundrum I live for.

Once I wore the lip down, I got some good hits out of it, and the best part, is that there's still plenty of ramp left. I'll get at least one more good session out of it.

Gonna take me a while to put an edit together. Got some killer footage.

10/10 day.

Definitely trying not too bro, thank you man.


It was so late I didn't get to post flight till the next morning.....Everything looks goodish, skid plates are pretty beat up. I feel like I did a full body workout with 2 leg days back to back.....so....all good things!

At some point near the end the tail light shroud gave up the ghost but I think that's it, until I go through with a torque wrench and see if anything backed off, I'm saying the bike came through big time.

I can't wait to get a couple days of recovery under me and get back out. I'm going to work the transition a little bit and see if I can't break the new angle into 3rd gear.

This is loading super slow at my house, could be that it's my house.....if you guys have problems with this, let a brother know. I love being able to use the music I want, but if the platform is an impediment to viewing for whatever reason, I'll have to do something else.

Connection is slow at your end. It plays fine and I like the video

I thought you used a digger or something but I see you did it the hard way. Respect for the effort I never jumped more than a half a meter with mine but as far I understand or at least that's how the physics should work ... When you are airborne you can use the brakes. More importantly the rear one since it has more spinning mass. When you apply the brake the quad should tilt down since the spinning momentum transits from wheels to whole quad and if you hit the gas it should tilt up. That's my theory. IDK if it actually works or if even if there is enough airborne time for this to manifest.
Actually it works. Found a video here

Try to land more on all wheels. I'd avoid landing on rear axle or even just one of the rear tyres. The axle should hold but the bearings and other stuff is more likely to fail over time.

Keep it up

Thank you bro! Great vid....I definitely need to shape up my mid air game and I'm looking for advantages everywhere I can find them, this will definitely cut down on some hard knocks....especially given the spot I found today.....If all goes well I'll be stretching the legs a bit, def on a dirtbike, maybe on a quad in the same line....

Gratitude for the encouragement and I will try to apply the tips in the next episode.

Little sahara, waynoka oklahoma, again! God, i f-ing love that place! It was hot as hell this weekend so not many other riders and the sand was in great shape. Rappy wanted to run a little warm, but i still let her eat...lol. If you like to ride and have not been to a sandbox, GO. ASAP. My crappy phone pictures do not do it justice, you cant see any depth. Just go man....

I LOVE sand, it looks great, reasonably smooth. The last picture is backwards but I can still see your grin!!

Just get a few guys together and GO!! You don't need sand tires, just drop air pressure down to about 5psi in the rear.
