SPRINTER to the MOON video
 
Flew the Sprinter yesterday with 15 mph winds. Kept looking at the MOON while I was flying and thought it would look cool to have some close up shots.
I should have done it earlier in the day when the moon was closer to the horizon. :rolleyes:
When I tried to point the plane down the line of sight from the moon to the camera it was in quite a high speed dive and hard to keep it steady in gusty winds.
Should also have gotten more video of rolls and loops and such to cut in.

It's my first attempt at video editing. :o

Cool! We're you 'eye-ing' up the shot to get the model lined up with the moon or was the camera man doing that and telling you where to point it?

The cameraman was standing right behind me filming close to my head.

You get the prize . A free shirt. ;)

I was going to use "Anus from Uranus" but thought I would save it for a better video.

I have it. I can post it but its HUGE!!! And the picture of the egg beater is small.. but I will post it if you guys want to dl'd it...

More to the point, this band Klaatu, is pretty interesting. I just googled the lyrics of the song to find the name of the song. Music is interesting enough to warrant finding out some more about them... So they were thought to be the reunion of the Beatles and the carpenter's covered one of their songs... Amazing...

Man don't get me started.
I love some of their old albums.
I remember the big hoop de do about who they were.
Great songs for a pubescence young male.

Don't know why this song harkens back to the past.

Don't even get me started on Anus of Uranus.

Larry,

Are you happy with your sprinter? I'm thinking of getting one as a first hotliner.

I would suggest the great planes siren if you are looking at the sprinter as a plane. Quick build, looks better, flies slower and has good beginner traits...

Been waiting to see the infamous eggbeater for months now...PLEASE post it.

#14 jaywatay Dec 23, 2004 09:09 AM

I think the eggbeater is becoming an urban legend. :) But I want to see it too.

#15 soholingo Dec 23, 2004 09:10 AM

The build up to the egg beater has been so great that it could never live up to the hype, it is with that, that I will respectfully refuse to post the eggbeater video...
