Man, Orrin just thought he had trouble finding donuts while driving to events. I would imagine the level of difficulty will increase a hundred-fold if he starts flying instead!

I just got home last night and have a lot of Flutter-by video to edit. The video is in HD. The armory was on the quite side so I think I want to add some background music to it. I need some recommendations for the background music. I'm guessing I'll need two songs.

I didn't get Bobs human attack though.

It was great to see everybody! Thanks for the battery charging Jack! I too hope to get to the JR this year. Are the dates set?

I got these from a post on Facebook from Airpig.

A couple of nice photos of some of the family, Flutter-By family.

Sorry, my bad! I forgot to make it public. It will work this time. I sure hope you were talking about the link when you said useless. LOL

I forgot to mention that the article I got the photos from was on AMA's Facebook Page.
the whole article was mostly a review of E-Fest and there are some great shots.

I don't know if the author of the article talked to Jack, but he mentions the Flutter-By looks like an enlarged Vapor, when in fact from what I understand the opposite is true.

I thought Bob's Green Flutter-By stood out great in the Armory.

I will add the link to the website after I post this. So in advance, no Orrin Syndrome, I am telling ya'll in advance that I am going to do it.

It is when I forget and then think of something hours later that the Orrin Syndrome kicks in and I have to admit it. Remember I got an another year older in January, which is only a modicum of an excuse for forgetting.

Here is the link to the article.

Enjoy.

the magic decoder ring worked. Alright. I think I counted 6 Flutter-Bys, but I never have been able to do that well.

Nice.

Ok, What camera are you using to shoot these videos with???

I just have to ask.

thanks for making it Public.

Looked Sweet with all those Flutter-Bys. At the JR Indoor I think we could get 10 to 12 up at once.

I guess that is one good thing about not having mine there, I was able to video it. My camera is two years old and is a Canon VIXIA HF S21.

I tested the link on the tread after I posted it and it played because it was mine. Oh well.

Are the dates set for the JR?
