View Full Version : Wrens Flying Video!

OK here is the footage from flying in the Quarry at Wrens.
I tried to leave some of the gyro sound in it, but it was just way too much wind noise, so I added some music. Enjoy: :)

Very nice Scott,
I like it that you can see your aircraft and the way the others come in and out of view.
The flashing of the rotor blades is a very nice touch and the shadows are nice.
Thank you, Vance

Thanks Guys! I am still learning how to do all this stuff, I just got a new camera for my birthday! (ebay)
It is supposed to have twice the video resolution as the one I have been using,
so hopefully I can get better at it.
Next year Phil you and Robert are coming with us!
I'm not ready to move up to Tim Chick's, or Shawn Adam's level yet!

I can't wait, that really looks like an awesome place to fly. I didn't even burn up $80 worth of fuel that I bought on the way down there.
I was heartbroken when I woke up Sunday morning and it was STILL windy and dreary so I didn't even get a flight in before packing up to leave.

Very nice job, gyro videos are always so cool and we need more good ones like this.

Excellent video. Looks like you guys had a blast. Maybe next year I can get up there.

Thanks Scott you imortalized one of my best gyro flying memories. Nice work.

I never thought I was a jealous person until I got into gyros and starting watching videos like this.
Maybe I can make it next year.

that was pretty cool.
I could not tell, was there anyone down in it while ya'll where playing over head?

Animal, I think we saw 2 guys fixing a truck, but other than that there was nothing going on. At least they were not doing any blasting! :)
I am glad you all enjoyed it. Thanks for the comments.:smokin:

That was a great video!

Excellent video. Totally watchable and good job in keeping the others in view.
I do have a question though. At the beginning of the video it appears that the nose of the gyro is doing a little side to side jiggle. Was this you giving us a little more to look at while straight and level or does your gyro's nose drift in yaw a little due to the pod?
10-19-2008, 03:13 PM
Greg, some of the side to side yaw was to keep the others in the frame. But I have noticed a lot of yaw in the videos, with and without the pod, it is not noticeable while flying, but it does show up in the videos.
I think it because of the large tail (dominator) and from being so close coupled.
Plus it was very windy in and around the quarry.
