First R/C Plane Video

Here is a video of my first R/C flights. On my first landing I almost hit the cameraman, but all was good – only bent the landing gear a tiny bit which was easily bent back. The video turned out pretty good, and all was created/rendered using iLife ’06 on Mac OS X 10.4.3 (running on an AMD CPU…hmm…)

Getting into R/C Flying…

I’m now trying to get started with R/C flying. I purchased a Hobbico Nexstar from the local hobby shop, and put it together. It didn’t take too long for the main assembly. The most difficult part has been trying to get the control surfaces all lined up with the correct throws. I’ll post pictures as soon as I get them.
