    Ya gotta come see! We'll give ya the "what's hot and what's not" list.

    Yup. Fly into San Jose (it's FAR cheaper than SFO or OAK, then Go up the peninsula past Google, Yahoo, eBay, NASA, Oracle, etc, over the GGB, a slight detour over Mt Tamalpais, and then on into Sebastopol. Another day you can hit the Winchester Mystery House, um, Big Basin, if you're into GIANT redwoods.... ohhh, lots of places. Don't bother with theMystery Spot, unless you're really, really, really bored. Instead, time it right, and go to Natural Arches, with the billions of monarch butterflies. Albion Bog, The Darlingtonia up in far NorCal, or even the Darlingtonia wayside in Oregon.

    don't think I could fit all of that into a week's vacation. I'd probably just end up wanting to stay and forget about going home.

    It's video time!

    Here is the long-awaited video tour of my back yard and greenhouse. Sorry, no audio, I wasn't feeling very talkative. I will do this again when the Sarrs quit making phyllodia and start making their pretty fall pitchers. By then the Neps that got caught up in the aphid nightmare months ago will have pitchers, I hope.

    Another video. In this one I Velcro'd the little keychain sized video camera to the nose of my silk covered RC glider and took it for a spin. This is also the longest flight I've had with this plane. It's a bit tough for me still, and you can see it in how jerky my flying is. I;ll get better, with practice.

    OMG, that glider video was just way too cool, although I should have taken a Dramaine first, haha.

    As for the tour of your backyard and greenhouse

    Yeah, that's not the best place for flying. It was getting pretty turbulent. Later in the morning it got worse, and I ended up crashing. Nothing damaged that can't be fixed.

    Cool video! The image stabilization hurt my eyes a bit, but yer flying seemed fine.

    What kind of camera did you use?

    He he he! I shouldn't be flying at a near 45 degree angle. It's not very efficient.

    I just got the camera. It's a tiny little thing, stuffed into a car alarm clicker case. Here is the dedicated link in RCGroups: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1556994 The first post has links to the ONLY two authorized eBay sellers. Don't try to find these off eBay, they're all counterfeit. (I have one seller's e-mail, if you want to purchase one directly.)

    Sorry about the image stabilization artifacts. When I edit the video, I'll upload it without the fixits.
