Russian Thunder training

March 17, 2011

One of my early flight training experiences with Steve Wolf. This video was taken using the FlyCamOne2 system from Hobby-Lobby. It isn’t very exciting but it shows what can be done with the camera strapped to my head.

    Very cool. 🙂

    The noise really wasn’t a problem at all. I could just make out a radial. You should do your aerobatics out here more often. 😛 (Or maybe you have been, but I am just missing them.)

    Hope to see (or hear) you out this way again, and good luck!

    That was me! I fly over the railroad tracks because that is a legal spot for aerobatics. I try to stay high enough that I won’t be a noise bother for people down below, but I guess the engine is louder than I realize.

    Enjoy the show. I’m preparing for a contest in mid-August and will be flying pretty much every day until then. If you download the 2010 IAC Sportsman sequence, you can follow along with me.

    Cool video. Did you fly today (July 22nd)? I live in Albany, and had great fun watching a Yak-54 do some aerobatics from my backyard, West of Albany.

    It was funny. I heard a radial and went outside, and I got the binoculars and noticed it the plane looked familiar. I was like…. That looks like Eric Beard’s Yak-54 (?!?!). Then, I did some research and found out it’s been purchsed and based at CVO. Cool story.
