Awesome work dude! Thank you so much for giving all of us the opportunity to enjoy the finals almost as if we were there.
So, who won? Final standings?

Thanks for the feedback guys but much of the thank you’s need to go to the following people:
Jim Monaco – He is Mr. F3J in the sates! He was open to and provided support/information in the initial planning stages. He has been the one to motivate me to provide the live feed with his efforts in F3Xevents.com. The efforts he has put forth is just A-mazing! Thank you Jim!!! I am so sorry I did not get a chance to thank you in person and say goodbyes!
A huge thank you must go to my teammates in alpha order, Kerry Cavazos, Robert Cavazos, Steve Garland, and Mike Lee, who work like the dickens to carry much of my part of the load so that I can work on the setup of the non f3j equipment! Thanks guys and gal!!!!
Thank you to Poppy John for providing the generator for backup power when the batteries were depleted to keep the feed going. Broadcasting at higher bit rates takes up a lot of juice running on a/c inverters, something new I just learned!
And thank you to all the pilots that volunteered to be mic’d up! Your comments during the finals allowed me to follow with the camera!
I have all the footage backed up on the laptop and will post them on vimeo.com when I get a chance to edit out all the boring parts.
Until next time, thanks again all!

Oh, by the way, all the footage is also saved on livestream for 30 days so anyone that didn't get to watch the live feed can enjoy it after the fact.
For a better experience in the future, I am already thinking about and looking into laser tracking devices with the steady cam/floating mounts.
The Canon HV30 is very capable for internet broadcasting, but I am going to find a way to do it better with the Canon XH's as well as being a bit more mobile with more wireless devices.
