Great pic! The indoor fly-in was a good idea with the current wind conditions (gusting to 45 mph!). I was planning to do an AP of the dedication ceremony of a bridge that I've been doing construction AP on but the wind had me grounded.

I'm wanting to make that indoor fly-in next year.\

I wanted to go, but Memphis is too close to Tunica. My wife said she would drop me off in Memphis and run down to Tunica! I decided to rethink the whole thing!

Hi Guys,
I was at the Memphis Fly-In today and had a great time. I met rcpilot901 and we talked a few minutes about AP and our airplanes. I am not a big fan of 3D flying, but I was amazed at the level of skill these guys had and some were just kids. I will be receiving a Nikon 3700 on Monday according to UPS.com, and I am look forward to shareing my adventures.

rcpilot901- I enjoyed the video and thanks for taking the time to talk today.

It was a pleasure talking to you. The show was great, I never saw so many foam chucks rain down. There must have been 50 mid-airs. Foam everywhere. Glad you like the video. The blimp is not really the right platform ( it moves too much) but the video came out ok.

Welcome to Ap you will like the Nikon 3700. I have the hacked firmware and pretty much keep it in sports mode unless I am shooting video. You will need a 1gig card for sure.

Have fun.
