ATTENTION WATTFEST ATTENDEES, I am planning a big still and video presentation. Please, you all all with you, bring a camera and video camera. If this is anything like last year, it was a blast and I want to get as much of it captured on film as possible. If every one of us has a camera and makes a point to use it often, we will have some great moments captured to share with others. I will have a computer with me so we can view and share all the images of teh event. Even images of your preparation and trip would be appreciated. My goal is to capture still and video images of every aircraft and every person numerous times. Please help me with this.
Thanks, Denny

Finally done packing. When it's quiet out you can hear the mosquitoes in my yard burping.... I sure fed them enough!
I built some pvc racks to stack models and get more in. Still had to leave a few here, but got most of them in there.
These are the micro model carrying cases.

Just back from the field, it looked great. Several members of the club worked hard to have it ready. Enjoyed some great flying and some really cool night flying. There were several people there enjoying the evening. I plan on being there around 6AM. Come by and say hello,tomorrow, I would like to meet everyone. I enjoy this hobby and look for ways to help all clubs with their events. If there is anything I can do to help let Brian or myself know. I would love to see more large local events so we can enjoy our hobby and the company of good people. It might be kinda windy for the smaller aircraft during the afternoon tomorrow but the forcast is much better on Sunday. Look forward to seeing everyone there.

Here's the 1st of about a dozen vids I shot today. This one was from my aerial video platform but didn't come out too bad.

I found out it's pretty hard to keep up with a micro sized plane. They turn so quick it's hard to follow zoomed in and if you zoom out they can go invisible.

Ok, so some big things are hard to keep up with too. Here's a BVM Electra. I missed the take off and lost him a couple of times. Still got some decent footage though.

I didn't catch the name of the plane but it was being flown by Neil from Orlando (I think)
He also had one of the Great Planes "Rifle's" that would be better described as a "bullet" I tried shooting video of it too but gave up pretty quick. It was just too small and WAY too fast.

A flight on my Hobby King Vampire filmed by Brian M. Man it was windy. Ever see a Vampire do a Harrier landing?
