sure.
I just do not have a PC fast enough to run RF6.5 and a screen-video catcher.

HF should incorporate something that you direct can view simulator files. Talk to realfligt people. A viewer-plugin might be a good advertizing thing for them.

Nice to see Finless Challenges back.
Both helis are down right now, so it'll have to be on the sim.
Here we go.
Finless Challenge may 25th (3 min 31 sec)


Kinda sloppy sometimes, but overall not bad, for 11:30 at night .
lol

We definitely need more submissions to this thread. I know people can hover, inverted, etc.

Put a camera on a tripod guys, that's what I had to do.

Once I can record my sim, or tripod mount my phone, I'll submit.

I'd love to give these challenges a go but I have no camera nor do I know anyone who has one who is also mad enough to want to watch a guy with an mcpx. Could always try to record on the sim but I'd rather try flying for real.

I am still struggling to make a capture.
Might install the sim on my company pc.
Only use a slow AMD notebook for the sim.

It seems fitting that my very first video is a Finless Bob challenge. I make hovering practice a part of every day at the field. It has been a big contributor to my progress.

The inverted part was not very good. The previous flight was much better but lost concentration a few times. It amazes me that it is so hard to really concentrate for 4 or 5 minutes.

It would be fun to connect. CT isn't big enough to be *that* far away. I'm in Greenwich so ~100 miles to Manchester.
