A heavy file, 3.9 Go! 35mn video! but worthwhile!
05-23-2005, 06:00 PM
That is a long download but worth it. I wish they would have made it in a higher resolution. I think it would have been better to sacrifice length for better video quality.
I want to take a trip like that!

tell us what it is so we can decide if we want to download!

Ron, It is a few Magni's a trike (?) and one or two small FW flying in some very exotic places. There are very interesting things to see both natural and man made. They are obviously on a long cross country with hotels and remote airports involved....It is over 20 minutes to view but it really does show what it is like to live a dream...... or at least the dream of exploring the freedom of flight while visiting different people. I really liked it. I just don't know where these places are.... The remoteness was like Bensen days but I did not see one single alligator.... I like the mix of flying, sightseeing and the people. Thanks - I did enjoy the footage - especially all the air to air shots and air to ground over the rocky ocean shoreline. jtm

Nice video. A lot of scenic stuff, and some good gyro shots, both of the machines and the surrounding area in flight and on the ground. Well filmed and halfway decent editing.

Thanks, André, for the link.

That was some beautiful footage, Exotic scenery, and a trip of a lifetime for those people.

Man!!!!! that was great. I wish I could understand all they said. Can I download that to my computer. I just played it online. 36 minutes. I love the mix of the shots as well. Landing, flying , watching your shadow. Meeting people. going places. OK. we need a national cross county. Where we can join a bunch of people along the way. Maybe tie it in with Bensen Days or Menetone or Just Louisana to Canada. I hope Rob Dublins video is like that one. Thanks for the link. Anymore?

Thank you for sharing this with us André, it’s something we all can dream about. If I wasn’t such a dumb a$$ I could under stand the language.

That was most awsome! it looked like africa.I know one thing, I would not have wanted an engine out over some of those areas they flew over. I can only imagine what it would take planning wise to make a trip like that.

Oh man... that is awsome. There is a link on the PRA home page to that clip now. It is completely worth the length of the download - of course, I've got big bandwidth.
I've been to some of those areas on Morocco while I was in the Navy stationed in Spain. Morocco is just an incredibly beautiful and friendly country. The Atlas Mountains... well, memories came back big time..
Gawd... I lust those Magni's...

Great adventure quadrirotor.

It is a trip, a raid on Marocco, in the propwash of Saint Exupéry at the first time of the Aéropostale...not many things have changed...

I downloaded the video today and did a test burn onto a DVD and it turned out halfway decent. I'll try to get some additional stuff to fill the DVD and make it available in the near future.

Merci Monsieur Martin!
La music ces't superb!

Love that scene with multiple gyros flying low over the sand... like something straight out of Star Wars. :)

I had not realized they were on the Atlantic side and found confusing the ocean on the right side.
There is even a brazilian song in the video, that part with the shipwreck on the beach!
Maybe one day, my second trip will take me around the Mediterranean?

I found this site accidentally.
I truly enjoy seeing what other people, in foreign lands, do with their gyroplanes.
Somewhere on this site is an incredible journey in gyroplanes, through fog shrouded coastal valleys, mountains, etc. I couldn't find it at this time (in a hurry to get to work) but this (below) is another good example from the same site.
Go to "newsletters" and then scroll down to
Mike and Simon fly a local round trip"
for a quick but enjoyable flight.

Tim, how do you down load it to your computer for a burn?
06-01-2005, 04:34 AM
On the link of the video do a "right mouse click" on it and select "save as" option. Choose a folder on your PC where you want it to go and then click "save". After it downloads I open it in a video editing program and then save it as an mpg file that I can burn to a DVD.

That was great. Super video !!! Was very interesting to see gyros in strange locations. That is some video camera man and who ever did the cutting together of the shots did good work. Back up tracks / music was good too.
So is heron right that locations were in Morocco ?
I took french in high school but forgot almost all of it.
My wife may help out with the translations I am curious what they were all saying in the interviews.
Do you know about how long each leg of the flight was ?
Looks like there was a lot of aviation going on in some locations. Yet looked very remote.
Thanks for sharing that.

Thank god for translation mode.
I get it now.
06-01-2005, 09:09 AM
My high school french is down to 30%, I can still read (with help) but the interviews are a guessing game.
It is Morocco alright and they had seven or eight legs of flight. It seems they also had some backup just in case . . .
I have a trip in the works from Here to Brazil . . .can wait to start the project.
