A penguin flies in Florida.

I had an enjoyable flight over the beach near my home here in Santa Rosa Beach Florida. I made use of my Penguin equipped with a Fat Shark camera and video transmitter, as well as my GoPro 3 for video recording.

I'm flying it with two 2200's in parallel. All in all it was a very nice flight.

Legally you're not allowed to launch or land any aerial device within the state park boundaries. So I made sure to stay outside the border sign for launch, flight and landing.

I was very pleased with the landing of the Penguin on the sand. I expected it to hit and just slide with no real control. In the video I could hear the wheels rolling. So it didn't just skid on it's belly to a stop.

Excellent question!

Because the rules only state where you can launch and land from, not where you fly.
