That's pretty close to what it sounds like, right?
Depends on where you're standing. There's no Doppler shift if you're the controller.

You know, after looking at that video, CL combat is a LOT faster than I remember it!

Rickenfrackenmumblejumblecursecurse snake. I'm slaving away at the desk working on the F3J video, and I go to get my little albino corn snake for some company. Well, she must'a had other thoughts, 'cause she went and bit. Hard. First time she ever did that, too. Those hunnerds a' tiny teeth HURT. Don't worry, not venomous.

Grumble grumble.

Actually, I just stopped by to say that the video is almost halfway done. I'm going to try an edit, and if it works, I'll save it and pop it on YouTube. If the edit doesn't work, I have a spare copy already saved. I might start that one up on YT, just for fun.

Ow.

Annnnnd here it is! Three minutes of F3J madness. Go full screen!



F3J launches and landings (3 min 34 sec)


Yes, I really was laying on the grass, inches from the end of the tape. That really close landing I reached out and tapped the wing tip.

Cool video!

But I don't think that I would ever intentionally do those "doink" landings. Where I fly, the plane's nose would break off, and/or I would take some chips out of the rocks I hit.

I'm still not sure of that myself, Owl. It's some funky thing I got from YouTube called "Nuclear Clock". Sssssssskwhooooooommmmmmm!

I'm just startj g to learn how to use Avidemux. Once I get the $$, I'll buy the upgraded version of QuickTime, which seems to handle my camera's output better, and makes videos that my computer can understand. Right now, it's been a hit-or-miss effort, taking notes, and trying to figure out a format that at least YouTube can read. Arrrrgh! Oh, yeah, and forget choosing my OWN audio. Avid. says it's there, but I never hear it.

Wow, the night is very clear, and a 3/4 moon is lighting up the ocean. Beautiful! That, coupled with the fact that the weekend is almost here, means that it should be a wonderful night indeed.

Turns out that I was right..... it was a wonderful night!

All the patients behaved themselves, so it was a nice mellow night of work. Now it's time to take a nap, and then make some balsa dust and foam snow.

Today was pretty nice on this end of the state, too. We are loosing our regular contest field (putting portable classrooms on it ), so we tried a new venue two hours south of us. Very, very, very nice! It lies almost directly along the general wing direction, has porta-potties all around the park, and there's almost NO traffic. Or it could have been that they were all in Gilroy at the Garlic Festival. The town or Hollister welcomes us there, and are happy to see the field being used. I love it! Hawks, eagles, vultures... and today, Avas, Supras, Olys, and a Gentle Lady filled the sky. The Spirit flew after the contest until the Tx gave me a low battery alarm. Whoops.

Me too! One of our flying friends worked on one of the gizmos aboard the rover. He came in to a club meeting to talk about it.

LOL! I wish it said stuff, but I just beeps incessantly.

Where is everyone? I haven't seen a post all day.


I got the new keychain camera, the #16. Two days before the new version came out with all the lens options. D'oh! I've been monkeying with it all morning.
