Very nice Don! Thanks for taking the time to record and then upload these.
F5B runs are very difficult to video well. You did a good job of keeping the models visible nearly all the time, and your vantage point beyond base A gave a good perspective of the climbs.
The running commentary adds to the interest too!

Thank you all for the kind words. It is made considerably easier knowing where the plane is going. Filming world-class pilots flying a known course wasn't too difficult...and it was fun.

Wondering if we can expand this thread (rename?) to include world wide contests/practises for F5?

Eurotour starts with weekend.

http://www.contest-eurotour.com/html/f5b_termine.html

An event each weekend (except Pfaffikon) until July!

Good chance for people looking to try F5B to come along and see what it is all about.
