Video feed from the WC???
As I'm sure those in this forum who also fly bigger planes already know, the F3F (3m slope racing) world championships in Germany are/have been going on this week and they are broadcasting a LIVE feed from the flying flying site... I couldn't watch much of it earlier this week due to work, but I did burn some of this morning's worktime watching the feed. Great video quality. The video feed is here: http://www.f3f.de/index.php?id=150 (I think they're done flying for today). Anyway, I think it would be very cool to have something like this for the F3K championships next summer. I also realize that F3F lends itself to filming better than F3K, but still... I think it would be cool.

That fabulous news!

I don't know anything about the technicalities of streaming video, but it would be real nice if the camera's position and/or focal length could be wide enough to see the whole field and somehow show/indicate the round and heat.

Hi Mike, we may do that. I have seen their coverage of the wc f3f and it was great. What I would like is advice/wishes for camera wire etc. We have one person in our staff that made the live streaming for the ec in some weight lifting, so the tech. side should be covered :)
