Just some footage from a small local park with a MagpieAP. While there is nothing really exciting in there it does give you a idea how well this plane glides. Lets see a slow stick do that with a camera onboard.

Nice video!
Now for some music....

Most of the time I get so much wind noise I have to add music. This time with light winds it wasnt bad at all and you can hear me cut the motor and glide the rest of the way back. Sometimes I just take the camera off for some real fun and throw it around the sky. The 200" loops are impressive ... lol

Here's another view...
I don't like music in flight videos. Why?

1. One reason I fly electric is for quiet and relaxation.
2. I like to hear the sound of the wind and the motor and the birds, etc.
3. Most times the music in videos isn't my "type".
4. I believe we are "overmusiced" today. It seems that people feel we can't live without it...as if it has to be in the foreground/background of any and every activity.

Now don't get me wrong...I love music (over 600 CD's, seven guitars, a clarinet and three recorders) but music should be listened to, and not everyone always wants to hear it!

Just my thoughts.

Keep 'em coming like the last one, Kosh!

Nice video. I thought that looked familiar. I lived in that area years ago. Beautiful green everything!! Ha ha. I don't miss the rain though.

good job Kosh, I like watching your vids.....

I'm going to have to get out soon and get a video made, hey - I enjoyed watching all the videos on your site...looks like the dogs have more fun than anyone!

I still got you on messenger...I'll chat with ya soon

Thanks Dave,
Speaking of the dogs having fun I just got this one done and its not even on my site yet. While it has nothing todo with AP its always fun to watch him tear up a plane. Siroc is a Ace now with 8 confirmed kills but this time we wanted to see what kind of foam he liked best. In the video he keeps grabbing the same chunk over and over of the soft spongy foam used in shipping. After 15 minutes there was no parts left bigger than a inch.:D
Please do the right click thing again.

Siroc will visit a flightline near you on his summer tour, Will your foamy hold up?

Ok, More than a few private messages on what camera was I using and thats cool but it was a oversite on my part not to say it was a Nikon 3700. A little background might be needed, The camera can do over 7 minutes of video on a common 512 SD card or well over 400 photos.
Its around 6 ounces with its lipo and card and in sports mode will click off a photo about once every 3 seconds while the shutter is depressed.
Will take 200 photos in about 5 to 6 minutes where its hits its limit and you simply reset the servo to keep shooting. I have never used up the lipo in a single day, Once doing around 1100 photos and 15 minutes of video on a single charge so it can fly at multiple sites in a day.
If I was really concerned about video I might opt for one of the newer MPEG4 cameras for more video time. I try to keep most of my videos short so its not really a problem here. Chime in on the Nikon 3700 if I missed something?
