I will be going out every couple of days to get some quad rotor footage and photos. I have to wait for really nice conditions before I fly it though.

So, what's in that cob? I'm not seeing straw, but maybe it's just super mixed-in? I see fibers sticking out of the cob on Justin's thumbs, but they seem really fine.

Love your photos, Sam! the close ups of builders and process make it all more intimate ...plus the drone shots really give the 'full picture'. Thanks a bunch! Also, it seems some pix are labeled 'wofati vodeo'...hope there's one coming ;)
