Re: XesEri Intro

Hi Eri,

this forum is nearly dead these days, but you will find a lot of good info in the archives if you look for it (but lots of trash too.).

Re: Living the Dream

Thank you Tony.
The filming is a bit like the flights...some you win some you lose! After the flight is over and I'm heading home I look forward to plugging the memory card into the computer and...

Re: Living the Dream

Thank you Tony.

The fields where we fly are not enormous....which moderates Archie's pitch ...so the action is often quite close... which is good for taking video. I would like to be able to film...

Re: Living the Dream

I learnt a huge amount from reading this thread before I ever thought I might fly a longwing. A series of lucky events led to my picking up a Tiercel in August 2015. Here is some video from his...

Re: Snipe Hawking 14/15

Thanks Tony, that's a very vivid description. I really feel for you getting a fail to flush, particularly on a day like this when he'd be working his socks off up there! What a shame!

Re: 'Barrabas' - Vernon Brown bred Imprint Male Goshawk

Thanks Tony. If I can help either of you set up the red dot sight on your cameras I'd be happy to do so.

Re: 'Barrabas' - Vernon Brown bred Imprint Male Goshawk

Re: Telemetry questions
