Video Fun


Video From My Astro Hog

Shot from my Astro Hog with a little video camera / DVR I got from Nitro Planes for about $27. Information here. 
We just taped, strapped it in place, and as you can see vibration is a big problem. Will try and come up with a better mounting system. Was fun to play with on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.

An Incident with Lessons for All of Us

From the AMA:

Passing of Randall Thompson

With sadness I have to tell you all that we have lost another Friend, fellow RC Airplane enthusiast and BMAC Club member. Randall Thompson pass away Oct. 14, 2010 after a long illness. I spoke to his wife Bonita today and she will inform me later of arrangements. Randall will be missed. Please keep Bonita in your prayers.

Attention BMAC Members: New Location To Enter Field

Our lock has been moved to the gate at the Mercantile entrance. Your key will work the same, we have just switched gates. This one should require a little less muscle to operate.
