Well at first I assumed it was Doug in the video, but it is me, Dave Bacon and someone else in a Sportcopter! It has to be you.
As for the Doug situation, I still think about it when I fly and wonder what the hell went wrong. I guess I will never know, but it sure was a shit sandwhich the way they handled that.

There was an older fellow, a surgeon somewhere in AZ, who was also there (flying a SC M-912), which had the SC fairing/partial enclosure. Mine didn't have the fairing, being a Lightning, like yours. You spoke of flying the "river" run w/ other gyros b/4 I arrived. Is that the gyro in the video?

Dave the video file was corrupted from sitting in an AZ garage for 8 years.
Its not useable. I will see if I can get some pics off it for you.
