Video - Davenport 2006-04-21

Apologies in advance for [email protected] quality - 30 seconds of shooting means I have to spaz out on the sticks to get something interesting. We have better footage on a 'real' video camera that I'll transfer.... flybys, landing approaches... here's what I got now:

I'll upload the full-res version of the initial launch you see here - that's Mickie testing out one of his homebrews - I think he called it the Typhoon? He was just checking trim - didn't film him carving too many turns, but it was carving it up. Un-obtanium?

Second plane shown is my Thruster from StembridgeUSA. You can see the build gallery elsewhere. 39 OZ unballasted, I can add 16OZ in the M60 ballast kit if needed... didn't this weekend, but might need to this summer at Davenport... what an epic site! Inverted climb outs, etc.

Oh yeah, that's my neighbor KPIG recovering his plane. And nearly hitting me with his plane. He was using a cheapo radio and big throws and was 'spooking' on his maiden flight a bit. And there was rotor. Um... that's his story, anyhow.

Whattya think of my 3.5 point slope turn? LOL... could use some practice.... soon! The Thruster really ripped it up - after we shot this footage I started to get the hang of where the 'bumps' where for some nice halfpipes... still thinking about how fun it was Friday.

Oh, just 150-200' halfpipes, apparently that is "sucky" lift to the locals. Jeesh. Living on a fault line must mess us all up.
