Over on the keyfob camera thread guys keep asking about how to mount the camera. They've come up with some ingenious methods but I think the following works pretty well for me. It started as a joke but really the vid didn't show any waviness or "jello effect" and I kind of thought the camera perpective was cool.

This trick was to find a former or bulkhead upright so you had something solid underneath the film covering. Also I put a small 1/4 inch by 1 inch piece of double sided sticky tape along the side of the keyfob to keep it from slipping. I then used some blue painters tape to make sure it stayed level (and attached to the plane) and finally I used some flyline backing wrapped to the tail as a safety lanyard (just in case).

Here's a video of the end result.

Well, I've done it. I've become a "blogger" !! Don't expect much, just some pictures of my planes and me. Maybe even an occasional....Helicopter !

The reason for doing this is because I've starting selling some small things on Groups and I realize that people like to put a "face" or at least, get a sense of the character or personnality of someone posting.

So, here I are.......

The Profile Photo is me at the Wings Over The Rockies air museum at the old Lowery AFB on the east side of Denver. I just could NOT believe that this little thing was actually a piloted aircraft. Heck, I had bigger props then that back on some of my 29% Extras.

Anyway, here's a FEW of my current aircraft to get you started.
