    RE: RC Ken and MinnFlyer have joined forces

    Been reading the sight. love it. Will get my daughters reading it this weekend.

    Found another link that went haywire. On the engine page, at the bottom ther is a sentence "We have a video of us starting an engine for the first time which is available here" and a link to videos. It is out.

    RE: RC Ken and MinnFlyer have joined forces

    This looks great. I've been involved in both building a web site and filming & editing instructional videos for my job and I can attest to the huge amount of work involved. I know you have said that you listed planes that you personally have experience with, which makes sense. I'd take a look at the World Models Sky-Raider Mach-1. It is very low cost, good quality and flys excellent. The semi-symetrical wing even makes it decent as an intermediate.

    Yep, I put a link to your page on my club's website.

    I'm also considering buying your videos for myself. I've been flying for a few years now, but never built a kit. I like the idea of being able to see some detailed kit building videos. Is everything working for the video purchase and download section of your site? It looks like a pretty good deal, and I'd be glad to help support you guys and your site.

    RE: RC Ken and MinnFlyer have joined forces

    Nice work.

    Your Radio page http://www.gettingairborne.com/radios.html has a link to your Videos (not the button but rather the link at the VERY bottom of the page in the article). The link is mis-directed resulting in a 404 not found.
    Simple mistake that all developers make including myself .... you guessed it. you have "htm" instead of "html" in your hyperlink

    I saw couple other mistakes (spelling) but I don't remember which page. But you'll be notified.

    RE: RC Ken and MinnFlyer have joined forces

    I just bought my copy of the videos. Partly because I'll enjoy them and I'll benefit from them. And partly to help support their new venture. They've both helped me so much since I started the hobby six months ago that 25 bucks is the least I can do!!

    I hope to download all 42 to my hard drive but it looks like a long process and takes a lot of disc space. Took 7 or 8 minutes on my high speed cable service to get the engine starting video. Mike or Ken, is there any way to speed up the process?

    Thanks for all the help,

    Frank

    RE: RC Ken and MinnFlyer have joined forces

    I'm afraid not. The video files are HUGE, but that's because they are:

    640 X 480 (Nice and big), plus they are pretty long - many in the 8-9 minute range.

    Also we made the file sizes as small as we could without degrading the image quality.

    So it was a trade off - do we make small crappy files that are easy to download, or quality videos that will take a while?

    We kept the quality.

    RE: RC Ken and MinnFlyer have joined forces

    I'm not exactly sure how much time you guys have on your hand but your other option maybe to put the files on a DVD and distribute it that way. Charge a little extra for shipping and material to cover cost.

    I'm sure there are people interested in the videos but just don't have the bandwidth to get them

    RE: RC Ken and MinnFlyer have joined forces

    That was actually the original plan, but neither of us wanted to get tied up in buying, burning, and mailing CD's

    If we get enough requests, we may do it, but we're trying to avoid it.

    We did this for a while at my old job and it was a big pain. We finally had a an outside company do all the duplicating, labeling and packaging. Their cost was very competitive with us doing it in-house and it freed us up for other stuff. We also didn't have to invest in equipment. All we handled was the shipping and it was much easier.

    Not sure, that's Ken's department. But it should have been damn near immediately.
