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

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

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.

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.

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.

Lurking in the shadows. We went and explored some tracks that are used for logging. Its fun because most of them are steep and 90% dirt so WOT is unavoidable. Too bad I didn't take camera with me.

That ball of hay was bigger thatn a tyre. Took us a while to take it off. It was funny though.
And a lovely sunset.

Ramps finished. Ramp Lord Duchess and her sister, The Pick Axe Princess.
Less than 48 hrs to the first hits.
