    I wish your posts had more substance. But at least you made it to 25.

    Our club is hosting a Boy Scout troop to introduce them to RC flight and let them buddy box.

    It's still OK to smack around an other's kid if they act up, right? :green:

    I thought you might like that :green:
    I started a write up last night but was too tired to finish. Will post one, eventually.

    I wing mounted a keychain cam and recorded the kids flights, now I'd like to do some editing to the QuickTime files but never have before. I want to add text notes and clip sections for slow-mo play, then continue vid at normal speed.

    I know you've done edits, is there cheap or free and easy to use software you can recommend?

    If you have windows, the stock video editor (Windows Movie Maker) will handle those basics. I'm not sure what version it started being included on. It came with mine on Windows 7. You can probably download it for free from Microsoft if you don't have it.

    I always worry about downloading free software from 3rd parties, don't know enough about checking to make sure it's legit. And the software I purchased was somewhat expensive and way more than needed for what you want to do.

    Turns out I do have Movie Maker (v5.1) and spent about 3hrs editing 1 vid turning an @.5gb file into @64k. THEN I realized if you don't have compatible MM + the video, you won't be able to view what is essentially a string command. FML :laughing:

    I've hit up people I know in IT depts. + the Mass media & Art depts. at SHSU and can't find anyone to help.

    OK, why I'm really in here tonight ...

    Have you ever mounted Roman candles on a plane? Seems like a wonderful OR, 'spensive idea. If I do it, I'll hopefully be able to get an @15sec fuse to get some altitude before the fireworks. Can't decide if they should shoot forwards or backwards. Powered glider w/motor brake so prop SHOULD be safe.
