Sorry to derail my thread.....
Buy while having lunch these were emailed to me....

I just had to share:
McDonnell Douglas DC-10 Quick Build at MFK Falken - September 3rd. 2011 (22 min 18 sec)

DC10 scale 1:10 Odense Airport, 22/10 2011 (11 min 17 sec)


This is why I have to get the 36 done ASAP.....
I so want a 250" 727.....

"Nuts" is when you wire it up for FPV, and have something like the old pilot seat flight simulator hooked up.

I was looking at how much flexing was going on with the fuselage and wondering how much stress that could take.

They may ahve been a few sheets to the wind when they thought of this, but definietly stone-cold sober when it was built.

Good engineering, good flying.

I can't help thinking that the "flex" your seeing is due to use of a CMOS camera and their quirks (banana blades on prop planes?).

Actually, the strange warping is due to the latest thing form you tube. Its the deshaking filter they keep asking you to use when you upload a video. It really screws with any onboard video (or any video for that matter)

OK you have your opinion and I respect that.

Please see here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolling_shutter

And could we maybe take it here to debate. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...03952&page=4ga

Love and respect.

I know what Rolling shutter is I've actually tried the deshaker and get the same results
to not go too OT, heres a video of my 777 (it matches the rest of the airliner videos) I'f you're really bent on it being a camera issue I can turn on the de shaker for a day to let the real fun begin
GIANT RC 777 onboard video (2 min 32 sec)


"stabilized" video
This video is stabilized with youtube stabilizer. It makes the video terrible. (12 min 49 sec)

non stabilized video
A video test flight, on a bright sunny day (12 min 49 sec)
