View Full Version : Pulling out a cravat test WA

I went for a flight to test the WA and vid mic and had a collapse and cravat (wing tip gets tangled in other lines). As I installed a new stabilizer line last week of a different colour, you can see my hand first pulling on a line of the old colour, then searching through for the new line and a quick pull releases the cravat. Next the ground comes up, and I have to get ready to land and drop the glider.

I'm still having trouble figuring out where the cam is filming, mostly the upper and lower frames. I think I'll go back to the idea of black lining a pair of glasses so it matches the viewfinder. :hv20-smilie55:

Do you mean the double exposure looking flag pole? Hadn't noticed it when I posted, but it sure is there... weird.

I did trim the beginning as it was unviewable. My head was swinging about, checking a variety of things prior to launch. Made me dizzy just trying to edit it out.

Whew, thought there was something more. Couldn't believe the difference between the mpg file and the avi (full of interlacing artifacts) think I'll try again in several different render's. Problem is, I have so many templates now, not sure which I used.
