My first attempt at making a video
« on: 02 November 2017, 16:53:38 »

.. and not that kind, before you reach for the "Report to Moderator" button.

I got myself a GoPro before heading to the highlands this year on my usual gliding pilgrimage.

I've never shot any video before, less still attempted to edit it into something anyone would want to watch, but the blank looks from family and friends when I tell them about bore them with my gliding exploits prompted me to try and help them "get" it.

Anyway, I ended up filming a flight that turned out to be my best yet in terms of altitude reached, so here it is, with the boring bits speeded up.

I was working up the courage to sucker the camera to a wing, and would have tried it on my final day there, but the weather didn't cooperate, sadly.

Excellent video Kevin and well done on the altitude  :y , would it not be easier though to bolt an engine on the front rather than have to get a bump start every time you take off and go somewhere  ;D, Ive also noticed youve actually arrived at the same place you departed, so you may need to work on that one.  :) ;D

Probably the lens on the camera, but I thought "He won't be landing from this height" ;D

You're a brave man, Kevin: I can't imagine ever being SO constipated as to need to do that!  8)

Fook that. I don't even like going up in a big one with four engines strapped under the wings. And that piece of red string on the screen would get right on my nerves.  ;D
Seriously though - very impressive Kevin.  :y

Excellent video :y A good few years ago Maureen bought me one of those "experience" gifts for a flight in a powered aircraft,where they do the take off/landing bit and you get to take the controls for a while.I loved that and I'd truly love a go in a glider I think it'd be fascinating,don't think I'll ever get to experience that though. :'(

The experience is supposed to be serene and relaxing Ron. A time to 'breathe' and contemplate your place in the grand scheme of things.

You're not supposed to shit yourself. :)

A local gliding club i bike past sometimes have a board up advertising short flights. Perhaps there is one near you doing the same thing Baza.  :y
