Dear Jan Arie,

I watched that leading edge slowly eek into North Texas as I was flying. It's still sliding slowly in. When I landed it was smooth as glass, a 90 degree cross at 8. Hated to put her away, but Sheila was hungry and she doesn't ask much of me. The next two days are going to be cool and wet, and we need the wet.


Oh yes, plenty of wet. I like that.

I grew up as an Aussie equivalent of your ranchers and there is nothing that destroys the soul more than a prolonged drought.

Tim


Where did you grow up Tim

Al


SE of a town called Cudal

Gotta be quiet about this with all these Texans but we ran sheep .Used to shear around 15000 of them and join about 800 cows for beef

Tim

PS. and then there were the horses which father thought far more of then he did his children. About 20 mares and a stallion. No time for photography which in retrospect is an era lost


Lucky weve got no kiwis here......ROFL....
Im about 4 hours south of Cudal...I used to go to Orange a bit 10yrs ago Kart Racing.....grew up around here since age 7.....
2hrs form the snow, 4 hrs Sydney or Melbourne, 2 hrs to wineries at Griffith/2.5 form Rutherglen..1 hour to Temora.....were on the Murrumbidgee.River......funny we seen to take it for granted.......not a bad spot

Guys,

You've got to check out Vincent Laforet's latest blog post.

On the subject of stabilization, my friend Bobbye Kenyon is sending me her new KS-6x6 design to flight test. I'll be doing an article on it in an upcoming ISnAP and comparing it to the existing uni directional gyro designs.

Now I'm off to the Movi site to see what this rig is all about!

Thanks Mark!!

Jim,

What impressed me was the footage shot out of the helicopter over Manhattan.
Thats the sort of stuff you normally need a very expensive heli cam set up for.

Price is out of my league however.

It is amazing Mark. Looks like that particular model will be in the $15,000 range. Pricey, but that's only 7.5 helicopter rentals with the stabilized camera set up. Kenyon is sending me a 4x4. After a little discussion we decided the 6x6 would be considerable overkill. The 4x4 is the equivalent of a KS-8 in stabilization, plus the other axis. Still, the Movi is a completely different product and would make a great addition for a number of DSLR video applications. One just has to have the assignments that make investing in these a viable option.
