Firstly, a great post, keep them coming please!

Steve R, I've downloaded your vid and it cuts out before take off, and is only 10Mbs, any ideas?

Paulo, looking forward to yours, hope you get it sorted out.

I have a 50 Mb clip entitled 'A Flight Over Finland'. It's very well done, not by me I hasten to add, not sure where I got it from. If anyone's willing to host it, please let me know and I'll get it over to them.

I have some odd clips from flying myself, just need to find a way of getting them on data etc.

Regards and Seasons greetings to all.....

Edit: Circuit Basher - Bloody excellent piece of video, thanks for sharing that. In all honesty, it is what I would aspire to! For those yet to see it, recommend the download, I doubt you will be disapointed

No idea - works OK for me.

re: hosting more vids, please check your PM's - and any other PPRuNers who'd like some space can pm me for ftp credentials. (I've got hangars full of space available)

Thanks to SteveR, mine's back online. Cheers Sir!

Circuit Basher - Superb! I was thinking just the same at one point "imagine doing this over heathrow".

Nice stuff over the bridges too. I've sent a CD copy to a friend whose sister has a lighthouse in shot... cool. :-)

Nice Paulo!!

36 seconds into the clip I had a beaming smile on my face, looked to be a great flight Sound track's nice too.

I've uploaded a flight vid, that I got off the net some time ago, up onto Steve's server, just need him to link to it. Thanks mate.

I have some small bits of footage taken here in the US that I'll attempt to get on digital media over the hols, but it will be basic compared to what I've seen so far.

Thanks to Steve for hosting, a clip I got off the web a year or so ago.

Apart from the title suggesting that it is in Finland, I have no idea of where exactly, or in what.

Maybe the owner frequents these boards, if so, I hope you don't mind me putting it up

Hope you all enjoy it.

I've just tried your link again, and like kokpit, I only get 10MB: I'm on a very fast link, so its not modem trouble.

While we're talking flying videos, you might want to have a look at this one Mountain flying. Aerobatic Flyer posted the link to it earlier this year, and its a wonderful video - the soud track is super. Be warned though its about 30MB.

Happy Xmas to everyone.

Paulo,

Kokpit...

It's Wide Open Space by Mansun. Album is Attack Of The Grey Lantern (from memory - mebbe he is the Green Lantern?!)

Great track - rest of album's not quite so hot, though... if you like that, you might like the Goo Goo Dolls...

Here are a couple of clips taken from an R44 while flying the London Heli-Lanes (thanks to SteveR for hosting them):

Shots of London following the heli-lane along the Thames from East to West, Millenium Dome to the Battersea Heliport (39Mb): london

Shots of Heathrow following the heli-lane South to North (24Mb): heathrow

A bit of fun (39Mb): ateam

Updated version of the ateam vid which should be more compatible with most systems (and only 16Mb): a-team

Thanks also to rotorcraig for various bits of the flying and camera work (but not at the same time!). He is also responsible for the A-Team idea. I take no responsibility for anything.

G'day all and merry christmas

I've got a great one here of a sailplane doing aerobatics

Not mine but a great watch - i highly recommend it. Soundtrack suits the footage.

Cheers, Rob.

30 Mb, five minutes (sorry about the few seconds of garbage on the beginning, it wasn't practical to edit that off).

Beaver floatplane, Vancouver Island

Probably works best if you right click, Save Target As, and then run the file from your local disk. You may or may not need this video codec (6Mb, cancel out of the registration screen) and/or this audio codec (under 1Mb). Hmm, if I do any more of this I'll have to sort my technology out a bit - it's a decent quality bit of video, though.

(When I play it it works best if you turn the brightness up a bit and the contrast down a bit.)

Oh, and no prizes for guessing the identity of the passenger who is surely not at the controls (bit of thread convergence here).

mooney - nothing special, a cheapo digital 8 camera. The main difference is not to compress the guts out of the video. The 2.1mb/s option in windows movie thingy seems to be a good tradeoff vs. full DV

Hey guys - im slowly making my way through downloading all the videos!

Rob - ive just got your sailplane vid and i have to say i am EXTREMELY impressed!! Very well put together, and as you said yourself, the music really suits it! I never knew a sailplane could deliver such excellent performance! Are they expensive to buy/operate?



221B,

You gotta love the A-Team!!

Supposedly, the only people that they could show actually being killed on that show had to be Communists! Everyone else could only get injured! Well, thats what i was told anyway ...

Nice video, Paulo. Brought back happy memories of aerobatting over Warwickshire.

How does one go about getting an analogue video into a postable format? If I could do it, I'd be able to join in the posting.

The cheapest way is to find a mate with a DV camera and a PC with some basic editing software... plug the two cameras together and record the analogue footage onto digital format on the DV camera.

Then, use the software to export the whole thing from the DV tape to MPEG, WMV, etc. format.
