    Post Your Demo Pictures!

    One of my favorites. Demo into the Texas Ski Ranch which is a cable lake wakeboard park. We jumped in on a Satuday and Sunday morning/early afternoon. The landing area is an island surrounded by five towers and cables all the way around at about 30 feet up. They told us on the pre jump briefing that if we hit it, it would be a min. of $5k to fix. Our pilot gave them one hell of a flyby over their boat lake in the kingair before each jump too. He had people in the boat ducking Aerial view HERE Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.

    Commercial use of footage?

    10-4, Thanks Douglas

    Commercial use of footage?

    Yeah, they used the flying cars and the boogie board scenes. Is that site a place to download or purchase? DSE, they are known around here for extremely cheap and cheesy commercials. Hiring "models" that they probably picked up at the local strip club the night before, etc. I doubt they paid for the footage. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.

    Commercial use of footage?

    Just saw a local commercial using several different clips from "Good Stuff" Legal or not and would Joe want to do something about it? Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.

    Painting a container

    You could always ask the mfr but I do think that I know what their answer would be. Although over the years I have seen a fair number of Pop-Top caps painted. JerryBaumchen .....and a lot of flaps, too!

    New goodies from Canon

    thanks guys! I figured i have had this 20D since they came out it was about time i learned how to use it. Got a new 50mm 1.4 the other day for some portrait work i want to do. It isn't L glass but i'm working on it. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.

    the focus of my photography has changed significantly lately and now i wouldn't mind paying for higher end lenses since i know they aren't going to be jumped.

    Makes sense for a commercial shoot and i certainly see the difference good glass makes. I made the mistake of borrowing a lens from our photographer when she was taking baby pics B&H is evil! Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.

    Do you or anyone you know regularly jump L glass? Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  11. We could still get you some pop-poms..... You know he probably already has them, they are probably standard issue for the new guys on his team! Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.

    Newbie video setup

    DSE is certainly the man when it comes to video flying so i would go with whatever he says. I started out trying to find a helmet "to start with" also, i then decided that it wasn't working like i thought so i bought another one. That didn't work like I thought either so i finally went with a Flat Top Pro from bonehead and bought a couple extra top plates in case i wanted to change configurations/camera locations or camera models. I flew tandem vids, FS 4-20 ways, skysurf, freestyle, tracking dives, freefly (head up and HD) and just about anything else you could think of. Except CRW, those people are nuts! Is it more expensive to go that route? No. Only costs more to get started, cheaper overall. I had three helmets when i could have only bought one to start with. There is a reason that all the top video flyers in our sport use large top mount helmets, they WORK Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.

    Video Camera Angle

    *** Come on Gee, people jumped for years without an audible, don't be a pussy! Like someone else said, don't put it where it is easiest to knock into something or have a riser strike it. Your audible port on a mindwarp sticks out farther to the side than any other area of your helmet, you are asking for it to get knocked around. You could just as easily put in centered in the back near the bottom or on your forehead. Either of these places would work much better. Remember, you WILL drill more than the necessary holes in your helmet. You WILL hit it on the door, roof, side of the plane. You WILL change your set up over and over. Just part of the deal
  14. Yeah, and we are in the home stretch, not venturing too far away from home these days. Mrs paranoid seems to think she won't make Sept.1 Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  15. Did anyone else get a mental image of Hoop 'gator wrasslin'?? Good luck Dave, both with this comp and at Nats! Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
