(02/01/02) New streamable versions of my  three driving videos encoded using Windows Media Encoder 8.
They're cropped in a widescreen format which allows for slightly higher quality
motion (cutting out some of the bandwidth eating trees at the top of the frame).     What I've been trying to do is
get the best quality motion compression combined with the longest run time in the smallest file size possible.
18 minutes total playing time between the 3 videos.
Bottom Third (WMV) 10.4 Megs
Middle Third (WMV) 8.6 Megs
Top Third (WMV) 11.2 Megs

Original versions of my Mt. Evans driving videos (same as above) using fast
motion DiVX encoding.  The frames are not cropped like those above either.
The videos above really are slightly better quality.   I keep these verions here for
historical reasons.

9.3 megs Tight and twisty.

set to music. 

(11/30/2002) The following three videos were encoded using DiVX (best compromize of quality, filesize and portability.

(There's also a
30% smaller version (avi-divx) 20 Megs, for those who can't stomach 30 megs..
Had some more onboard footage so I put together a video that's most of the
action sequences. (28 Megs)

Older video clips.
The glider is a Bowman JW.   All these were filmed by me, while flying the glider through the
viewfinder of the camera.   Remember this is all just wind power.
JW Aerobatics 1 at Green Mountain (mov) 3.5 megs - good aerobatics and some inverted flight in the middle
JW Aerobatics 2 at Green Mountain (mov) 3.7 megs - big verticals up against the clouds as a backdrop
JW Aerobatics 3 at Green Mountain (mov) 3.7 megs - Some barrel rolls against the horizon 
JW Aerobatics 4 at Green Mountain (mov) 6.1 megs - Big swoops, big loops.. higher quality but larger video
Ok, here's where it gets fun.  Same day of flying I spent about 15 minutes playing
around with a hawk.  He'd fly up behind me slowly and extend his talons about 6 inches
away.   He never got a hold of the glider, but he did get a bit more aggressive later.
Video of Hawk swooping on JW (mov) 700k - I think he pulls back at the end because he
the glider is somewhat bigger than he is.  
At one point I had 2 hawks within 6 feet of the glider at the same time.   Unfortunately I ran out
of space on the card in the camera and had to delete a video clip before I could shoot
again.   Here's a very short clip just showing the glider and two hawks (800k) in the same airspace
but not particularly close.    

The next plane is a Nemesis from Composite Specialties
It's my first composite moulded glider.  Here are some videos.
Nemesis's very first launch and a couple turns.
A week or so later, here's 3 videos from it's
Second launch and high speed turn  
Some high vertical stall turns
Some more stall turns and a roll and flyby
I've also got some photos of the Nemesis from the first day.
