(5:36 min. -

plane which is called an RV-4. It is one of many kits offered by
out of Aurora Oregon.

This is a roller coaster called California Screamin’ and is located at Disney’s
California Adventure which is right across from Disneyland. It is a modern
steel tube roller coaster, but modeled after the old wooden roller coasters from
places like the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in California. The music heard in
the video is the same music played in the cars during the ride.
Extra 300L Aerobatic

- This is something I have always wanted to do. I watch these guys at the
air shows and wonder what it is like; well, now I got my chance. Some of
the maneuvers that we did in
addition to basic loops and rolls were Hammerheads, Spins, Point rolls, Vertical
rolls, Half Cuban 8's, inverted flight and an Avalanche (this is a loop with a
full roll at the top). I got to experience +5.5G/-1G and found that my
GLOC (Gravity-induced Loss of Consciousness) tolerance is about 5G for about 3-4
seconds before I black-out. Although I didn't completely black-out during a
+5.5G turn, I did get tunnel vision which reduced my sight to about 20% of
normal. Needless to say, I had a blast and was completely within my
element and did not add to the
kills' on the side of Bruce's airplane!

By the way, I couldn't help myself with the Top Gun music.

This is a
video taken from my
ParkZone Micro P-51 R/C airplane. It is only 14.3 inches long with
a wingspan of 15.8 inches and only weighs in a 1.22 oz. the
interference seen near the top of the screen is the spinning propeller, not
RF interference as I originally thought.
(There is no sound in the video)
HobbyZone Super Cub
(1:20 min. - 5MB) -
This is a
video of my very first flight of the
HobbyZone Super Cub LP. It does not come stock with ailerons, so I
have added ailerons to give better flight performance. It has a
wingspan of just under 4 feet and is approximately 32.5 inches long.
The interference seen near the top of the screen is the spinning propeller
just as on the Micro P-51 video.
I purchased this kit to learn how to fly off the water with the float set that is designed for it.
Additional videos can be
viewed on my Super Cub LP page
