I youre case you need to look on the internet for some Video compressor software. I am sure that you will find many freeware on Google. I use "Tempeg" but unfortunatly it is not free.
You can try this link

yeah, its RIDICULOUS! along Boyes Drive there is a little spot where you pull off and walk up along a footpath for about 1.5kms. from there, you can either fly from the path, or you can hike up the side of the slope (thats where i stood) and fly from there. the top rounds off, so you can glide the plane in for landing below the lift zone. very convenient, as its pretty hard to slow down and bring these damn things to a stop!

Hi guys
For all the people who need a movie maker, you can download windows live for windows 7 it also includes a movie maker as well. Its free. Just unselect all the spam thats included with the install, windows messenger, picture viewer, live mail etc.

Brian, that is awsome.
I would give my left nut to fly in lift like that, but wouldn't give you a penny for them rocks behind you.
The speed she picks up in dive means you must have ballast on board. What does she weigh?
The Mig looks great and you are also a damn good jockey.

haha yes! landing needs some practice... its a treacherous area! as for the weight, it doesnt have any ballast, but i have a feeling shes running slightly nose heavy even though i balanced it perfectly along the CG. roughly weighs somewhere between 900g and a kg.
