      Today was only around 12 degrees but there was no wind to speak of  and even better no rain.

      It was however very wet underfoot and we opted to move to another field with a gravel entry road rather than risk tearing up the entry & paddock & the shearing shed field.

      There was a fair turnup today with 6 in attendance & all keen for a fly after the last couple of weeks on almost continual rain.

      I forgot my HandiCam so had to use the phone to capture the float planes but hopefully I got some fair video from two flights with the TechPod (with GoPro9 onboard) and some from the BumbleBee with the Mobius Mini onboard.

      Kermit was busy with his HandiCam when not flying so no doubt he will have some good footage this week.

      I didn’t know that they made a “RunCam 9” but looking forward to the footage!

      Voting is now open for 48 hours only.

      I still have two Tech Pod videos to post from today but as they will be late (not till tomorrow) they won’t be included in the voting. I set the GoPro to the wrong format (again) so need to convert the files before I can edit them, I did have a quick peak and they look good.

      Nice footage and I have voted. I liked Ron’s Tundra going backwards on the pond. Its 35 degrees here in Subic and I just got back from a day sail.

      The donut worked Kermit, great video.

      Here is the foam putty I used on my Esky Eyas. As you are going to need a lot, you might get a better price when you order it in bulk?

        Looks better Mike, Could be the “RunCam 9” camera?

          Its stuttering like frame rate is too slow. I use 60fps for flight footage but I know youtube makes it look worse. Is your SD card fast enough for the camera?

        • #11340
          Predator

          There is no stutter when I view the YT footage however I had the GoPro on the wrong setting so the file was not compatible with my editor necessitating a file conversion and that is what may cause the problem you see.

          I’ll get it right eventually but in the meantime I just like flying the “Pod”

      As mentioned during our BBQ, here is a link to a few different styles of Trombe Walls.

      I’ll bring my beer can one along next fly day for anyone who wants to have a closer look.
