The Journey of an AP Cameraman

Posted 02-25-2008 at 04:41 AM by FlyinTiger

Well, to start off I suppose I need to set the stage. I am an aircraft fanatic since I can remember and love flying R/C with my family. My 3 year old and 2 year old are taking their turn the sim and buddy box already.

My wife, having falling in love with helicopters, is pursuing a noble facet of the hobby. She is working on building a business out of her experience flying helis and is learning a whole lot as she goes. I told her I would be her camera operator and try to stay out...

Re-entry into AP

Posted 02-25-2008 at 02:32 AM by Whirly-Girl

My first go-round with AP nearly 2 years ago was a minor success. I bought all top of the line equipment and I loved it!

Posted 02-24-2008 at 08:11 PM by TGibe (The Grass Is Brown Everywhere)

Went to the park today with my wife and in the second flight of basically forward flight she yells "Do a loop"...

I couldn't do it ... it was only my 4th time out doing forward flight and I just don't have the skills yet... I did manage some fast forward flight near the ground that got some oohs and awws from the few spectators around (they are easily impressed I guess).

Bummer.

But she did manage to get a few pics of the bird hovering which...
