Title: H & D at the Toyground
Post by: Deerslayer on February 08, 2020, 11:17:43 AM
On a beautiful post-Groundhog Day afternoon, the infamous Tree Cub once again made an impressive appearance. It somehow reminds of the song, The Cat Came Back (the very next day).

There was some nice flying by both Harold and Dwayne, while I struggled to aim my Handycam in the general direction of the action. Most of time I was shooting blind, as the extremely bright day, extremely darkened glasses, and LCD screen on the camera, all conspired against me. Point and shoot was pretty much the skill portion of the effort.  Future work will be done via the new helmet cam arrangement that I just set up, it works for the Handycam, Mobius or whatever else is appropriate.

Meanwhile, here is my best effort for that day:

Ummm ... that was INfamous, Tree D. Pay attention there!

We had another nice day out at the Toyground today. Where were you?

Yesterday, at the Toyground, there was a comment regarding the disproportional amount of H footage compared to D footage in the above little video cobble.  Noted! We are working on that. Accordingly, Dwayne and I played chase with the Mobius mounted on Skipper. The resulting clips will eventually be blended into a full feature on the D plane and/or its owner - real potential for great public acclaim. Please be patient.

In reference to the received comment, the Tree Cub is one of those things that just keeps attracting folks' attention. (Sort of like a traffic accident in progress?). So, we must savor and record its progress as it slides down the rusty razor blade of life. Someday, troubadours will sing of its exploits, peasants and junior pilots will bow and scrape before it when it moves out to the flight line (the viewers on Vultures Row will pause to snicker and point fingers at it). Glory days, indeed.
