Saw these 2 guys buzzing my neighborhood this evening right before sunset. It seriously looked like a lot of fun. They would swoop down and skim the ground like 10 feet above it and then swoop up right before some trees or homes. Really cool to watch. Something I would love to do. They came within 20 feet of my roof top and then would swoop down to the ground and skim the surface. Anybody else familiar with these?

What part of the cities are you in? I saw a couple of these guys flying around like crazy out in Medina on Sunday and Monday...saw a F16 go after a Cesna around noon on Sunday (now that was wild).

I thought about trying it. Looks like an inexpensive way to fly.
And if something goes wrong... heck, your chute is already deployed. :)
