Excellent model and vid Maybz. That F 14 looks like a lot of fun and has a wide range of flight characteristics. Loved that vid. I'm just getting into videoing. Is there any particular trick to squishing vids down in size. I note you got 3min out of 14 megs. I am just working on a vid now and can only seem to get about 1 min per 10 megs out of Windows Moviemaker without the quality going down the toilet. Look forward to anyones help.
I would like to see some more vids of that model - maybe later in the day with the sun behind you? Can you provide some build info.

Thanks

Sorry about the back light - yes it's annoying but better than nothing. I'll probably shoot another vid after I swap motor/prop setup tomorrow.

I also used Window movie maker for this one - when you go to save the file for output you can adjust the "best fit to file size" option. All I did was bump down the file size until it was as small as possible but still at 640x480 pixels.

Brilliant vid Maybz, amazing the way the F14 can slow right down to allow a hand catch like that. One way of avoiding grass stains. Will definitely have to slip this into the build schedule (somehow). How are you able to achieve that variable sweep shown in the second vid?
Thanks for the info on posting. I just finished my vid. Ha ha its of the F14's arch rival, the SU-27 Flanker. Link here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=771331
