Mark,
Enjoyed your flight. How often do you experience that level of flooding? What software did you use to edit the video?

Maybe once a winter, but it's usually in November.

Software: VirtualDub, which is really easy and has filters to increase sharpness, saturation, brightness and contrast. It's freeware and does most everything you need. Also converts the AVI to MP4 so it's not so much on the HD. The original flight was enough to almost fill the 16 GB card. The cam has enough battery life for a 32 GB card.

Mark,

Follow-up question. Based on your past videos/experience, is this the optimal orientation for the camera?

It's one that I enjoy. You can try other locations. I have the camera tilted down by putting some foam into the holder for it, I could use more. It would be ideal if the wing was just a little bit in the photos. I've tried the tail, but there is no real good location for the cam. The cockpit view is fun too, In the Chief I just open up the zipper for the aileron carrythrough inspection and tape the cam on the lower part of the opening pointing toward the cockpit. Fun to experiment.

BTW, I'll probably use the Aeronca11 version of the video in a little while. It posted on the other site (gee.....thanks Google)
