This Is A Test, It Is Only A Test

Thanks to my good friend the Dixie Drifter for introducing me to I'm gonna try to post a video here of myself flying a couple of my RC airplanes. If this works, I'm gonna have all kinds of fun with this one. If nothing else, it gave me a good excuse to finally figure out how to work Windows Movie Maker.

Hey Justin great job with the video play real nice and took off streaming right off the bat.

I have 3 or 4 different video programs on my PC and I always go back to movie make I find that it does the best job of all and plus it is free....If you get any complaints about your video that it did not play or it was fuzzy just ignore them it is their PC and video card, good job video was crisp and clear on this end.

It looked good here too Drifter, even my slow assed computer streamed it no problem. I had a little trouble getting the player sized right to fit in the post, and I had to manually close the HTML tag to get it to work in blogger, but overall I'm pretty tickled.

I'm going to try to get some more videos now that I have a way to post them, that one wasn't all that great but like I said before, I have a crappy camera. Besides that, RC airplanes are pretty hard to film, they're small, and fast, and there's a whole lot of sky up there that doesn't have an airplane in it, and nothing for perspective to help find it again if you lose it. Now I've just got to figure out how to get a camera airborn, I've wanted to do that ever since I started flying these things.

As the Mrs. gets a little better with the camera, and I get brave enough to do some tricks a little closer to the ground, the video should improve. If nothing else maybe you'll get to see some good crash footage. ;)
