Thanks Bill. Just began working composites this week, and Jay's pumped me to try another.

Here is a composite image involving multiple files, some gradient masks, and other fun. You can make them as easy or complicated as you want.

Two from today, but not aircraft. Working on my final project for class.

I see on FB that Angry Al is back in Oz; maybe now he'll have time show us a few of the images he captured at HQ and Alliance.

Meanwhile, I got a chance to fly my new DJI Phantom II Vision quadcopter today. Test reel is

" target="_blank">here. The II has a built-in video/stills camera that produces 1080p30 video and 14MP stills. It's well designed and well built; feels like a tank at about 2.5 pounds flight weight. It's got GPS auto-hover for ease of operation and a really cool 'go home' feature if the comm link between controller and copter is lost (demonstrated in the video). You can control the camera---and even the 'copter, to some extent---with the smartphone app by tipping and rolling the phone; the app also downlinks real-time FPV video and displays it on the phone, which clips to the radio controller.

It's a very cool toy, and a lot of fun. You can see from the video that smooth piloting plays a large role in how useful the resulting footage can be: I have a long way to go in that regard. I can think of a dozen places within an hour's drive where I can't wait to try this out.

Deer Trail gives a whole new meaning to 'shot list'.

Hi Guys ,

Yep finally managed to get home, complete with a few Camaro bits stuffed in my luggage..

Last long haul flight was from LA to Sydney, approx 14hrs in a 380, I'd purchased a seat in what I was told was the Wing exit row, where there was a row of seats missing in front of mine so I could stretch my legs on the flight home.
Unfortunately the exit row I ended up with was on the top floor of the 380 , & the exit was the rear upper door. Result was the second last row of seats under the tail, 14hrs of left n right tail corrections all the way home, Im still feeling punch drunk.

Finally got all my files loaded so in the next few days I'll post a few images.

A big thanks to all who attended MA2A get together at HQ, thanks again to all those who took the time to show me some really great hospitality and answer a lot of dumb Aussie questions ( and coach me on ordering US food ).

Al

Interesting Kickstarter for an intervalometer/modular sensor trigger: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/triggertrap/triggertrap-redsnap-modular-camera-trigger

I'm thinking of all sorts of things that this would be good for:
# Capturing gunshots for shooting sports
# Ball-on-bat shots
# Wildlife cams
...

Anybody pledged on/considered the Redsnap?

Mike

Edit for TOPP:

Fluid Lines


(Most of you have probably seen these pipes, hoses, and control lines. Can you name the aircraft?)

Jay, that last one is so dramatic. Is it really that pearlescent green?

Yup...

Jeff Welker can attest as well that the Danish birds were not just flat OD.
