One of the desert lake beds has water in it:

Gary, those wheels stop and hydroplane, guess you have the brakes on. Works like " snot on a door knob".

Barry, yes, it's a GoPro with assorted filters.

Ted, my brake linings are near the end of their service life and when they get worn down they drag. The right side drags more than the left. The water and slick mud don't have enough friction to spin the right tire.

Even though I washed the plane after the first trip, I had to go back for more, it's Mud Work 2

Gary,
It might have taken an hour to get the mud off, but how long did it take to wipe the GRIN off??
Dang, that looks like a Kick!
Good demo of our "Airborne Dirt Bikes"----

Nice video work too, thanks for sharing.
