F5B/F5D Now On DVD

I though you guys might want to know a about another source
of killer F5 flying video footage.

The best way to see F5D and F5B action is to get my infamous
'Electric Airshow 2' film which is now out on a special edition DVD.

Among the tons of electric flying, this flick features an interview with Troy and some great Pylon footage from the 2000 San Diego WC's with clear shots and killer sound.

As a bonus, the DVD has a 14 minute documentary of the 2000 F5B WC's starring the worlds best pilots from 12 countries. This is the cleanest footage available on F5 competition.

Lots of Midwinter electric coverage too.

The link to the Electric Airshow page is:
http://radiocarbonart.com/Pages/astwoumain.html

There is also a QuickTime movie trailer to watch too.

Check it out.........

The text on the web site states "A Special Look At The 2001 F5B Electric World Championships."

There was no Electrfic World Championships in 2001 unless it was on a different planet than the one we inhabit.

2001 was the year of the "Inter-Galactic F5B Championships"

The text should be "A Special Look At The 2000 F5B Electric World Championships" - anyway, i am going to get one of these DVD's for sure!

Make sure you get one that will play in Europe---the DVD that came from the Swiss WC won't play in North America. DVD's have region encoding!

suggestion

I have both "Secrets of Thermal Soaring", and "Endless Lift 3" on DVD. I love to watch both of them. Excellent! My only suggestion would be to add more chapters to the DVD menu. EL3 has several "sections" but you can't go directly to them with the menus since there is only 2 chapters. I really like the DS section and don't always want to listen to Perkins' interview, so I end up fast forwarding all the time. Could you add more menus? Please?

Great videos! Awsome footage! I plan to get the new ones.
Keep up the good work.

Thanks,

~~fred francis

My DVD-player plays about a half of the Winterthur disc...so it does not play well even in here...Since it is a DVD-r type disc and due to piratism i believe my player will not paly any self burned discs...

It won't even start to play on comerical players. I did manage to extract the video and play the different tracts---but I have not yet tried to put the whole thing together again. From what I have read even region free DVDs can be a problem with some players.

DVD-R's are very picky.

I have the Electric Airshow -2 & Secrets of thermalling. The electric one plays on my Marantz DVD but the thermalling one will not! However both play fine on my PC. Very weird.

The Electric Airshow 2 was Ok but could have done with more technical data on the planes shown.

F5B Video

do they rely on spotters for the in and out of course beeps or is there some sort of radar, or tracking system that tells you when you are outside of the course? Do you always turn in the same direction, or can you alternate? Its hard to see exactly what steve's plane is doing.
