No way this is what I'm trying to do with my Beaver videos but havn't figured out yet.
I use the Magix pro 16 editor and its so big that I'm still learning stuff on it.

This is way too good

Not many things to try here as it goes in the slot and the screw is tighten but if the screw is too short then it wont go in the float cross brace.

Gotta say Todd, that there was pretty good for a first shot at it, very entertaining! I spent three plus hours on Windows Movie Maker last night on a 4 min 10 sec long video, getting everything just like I wanted it and when I went to publish it (that's what they call it in movie maker) three of the clips I used in the movie were locked up! Found some stuff to try but at this point I'm so frustrated it would probably be better to walk away from it for a day or two!

PS - Sun was fully down behind Konocti at 6:15 last night so 5:30 would probably give us about an hour for a dusk patrol if it's not too windy!

......So does anyone have a spare right aileron, perhaps from an old broken wing? My Beaver has been grounded since an airboat water exfil went awry. I could graft it probably but it wouldn't be as pretty. I would be willing to cover shiping and whatever it's worth to you.

We can try this weekend at dusk and see how the water is. Call me if it looks good.
If I get my new Camera Stabilizer

Then we can try it out. As your my camera man and no one else can keep their eye on the planes the way I fly.

Just bought a 103" WS Beaver kit from a guy on CL for $100! I know I stole it but it is what it is!

The wood is cut by Laser Lizard and the fiberglass is all from MR Aerodesign. I also got the aluminum landing gear bracket (which is like 1/4" thick!).

I am having a hard time finding any "builds" for this kit on any of the major sites.

Could some people chime in here and help me find some good builds for me to check out.

Thanks for the help fellas!

I use a Big Green 10 x 10 Ft. Cloth I got from the fabric store. Then I film myself in front of it. You then drop the video on the Editing line below your main video. Double Click on your green screen video and click the APPLY CHROMA KEY. You select the color( Green) that you wish to remove and wala, you have a clean see thru background.
Spielberg out !
