Flying Over Baylands
I strapped a Panasonic Lumix FX01 camera to my Magpie airplane and sent it aloft to make a widescreen video of Baylands May 24, 2006. You’ll see the park and its surroundings, with lots of water from the winter rains, and other model airplanes flying below.
Visiting a New Field
On August 27, 2006, Bruce, Mike, Gary and I first visited the Peninsula Channel Commanders flying field at Half Moon Bay. It was cloudy when I got there, but soon the clouds gave way to sunshine, with very light breezes. The Slow Stick carried the Panasonic Lumix FX01 camera for this aerial view of the field, which includes flying over Gary, who waves at the plane.
