the occasional flyer

I've always thought that song would make a nice vid. First verse, preflight, launch, and dropping into the groove, with the ripping sound that's like music "that ain't got no melody." Second verse, clips of planes going in, where the "bad guy wins every once in a while." Third verse, find clips of pilots doing that little hip wiggle "dance that ain't got no steps." Chorus, laps and punch-outs with ninja stars..

A remote mic like the boys in the states use would be great- Vision from the normal angle, and sound from the 'danger zone"!

Josh have you watched/ listened to the video of Nick's (Jantar2A) Weldon DS session from a couple of years ago? This is a landmark video where Ian (Daemon) used a "dead cat" directional microphone to capture the sound. It's fantastic.

Would be very interesting if he teach us how to do it, I bet no one likes noise videos,
furthermore, the plane sounds comes alive using this technique

Thanks Andrew, that has is my favourite ds vid too. If I ever want to show someone what it looks like I use that one! I thought they used a remote microphone though. Whatever they did it sure worked!

Ian has written a very detailed description of the equipment and how it was done ... just have to find it!

This describes it a bit https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...light=dead+cat

This old thread was dedicated to "sounds of DS" and has some great vids, links and info:

This latest video of Alex's is a great watch. Wainui Ridge, flying Tracer, RT40, Jazz and 2 different Scratchos. Andrew P raises his PB from 108 to 169mph with some very smooth laps and you can hear the coaching from Alex honing him up. Nice flying, great site.
