???What is FLYING CIRKUS?
 
What the hell is the FLYING CIRKUS?. Never visited the old site. Based on what I gather by reading the posts its some secret society of insane pilots that do 3D flying in odd places and attempt crazy stuff.

If this is the case where do I sign up, because I do things with 3D airplanes that are definatly qualified as "nuts", and Ive got the video to prove it.


So is Flying Cirkus like the Cirque Du Sol of model aviation?

You description probably fit very well :D

The cirkus was (old site) about having a good time flying 3D and communicating with other 3D RC-pilot across the world. Lot of resources was available for newbies like myself and all questions was replied in a competent and friendly manner, no matter what they might be. Also the founders made instructional videos in a section called 3D University, which was really cool!

Unfortunately it was replaced by the flyinggiant after a dispute between the original founders. The flyinggiants is a shadow of the old cirkus... just look at the post over there - all BS like, "which color plane do you like the most" and such.. From the glances I have had, it's the same people that post over and over again, without having anything to say, hence the BS posts, like they try to make the forums look real active.

As for the cirkus at RCU, I consider it in a dormant state... waiting to recover on it's own dedicated site, which as far as I know will happen soon [8D]

About your vids.... post LINKS!! :D

Not really, but 3D flying is a major portion of what makes the Flying Cirkus. Really it is about good people and good times. None of the whiny stuff - they always encourage a positive vibe. I recommend frequenting it and sharing your experiences, and DEFINITELY that video stuff you speak of...we go crazy on that $#!+

The Cirkus is where the fun is. Bring a good attitude and leave the BS at the door. Share your tips and maybe even learn some. This is the place that makes flying toy airplanes fun!

RE: ???What is FLYING CIRKUS?
 
Sounds good to me...Count me in.

I guess this means I need to put the Cirkus logo on my airplane...

Ive got a graveyard of planes with all the ones Ive trashed trying different stuff, and learning 3D. I didnt chunk anything because I yank spare parts and stuff off them all the time for other projects.

Anyone know of a good place to put large videos.
Putfile only allows 25mb, but most of the videos I have are 200mb or larger. Or if any of you could recommend a free compression program that would shrink them down. Ive got some really killer vids that I did in Adobe Premier.

The sky down here in Florida has holes in it like swiss cheese.
When I fly in the field behind my house, I get applause from the neighbors.:D

Yikes...200 mb is way too big for any site. I have found that Window Movie Maker does a really good job at compressing movies very well while keeping good quality. Afterall...it's their software running on their system converting their format (wmv). I converted a video from 900 mb .avi format down to 25 mb in .wmv format and the quality loss was minimal. You shoul give it a try and then post it on Putfile.

Ill have to try that.
Hopefully, Ill have some videos coming right up. Video's of the guys down here tearing it up. Got some wicked video of a Compy Extra330S torque rolling about a ft off the deck, Inverted low passes, KE, rolling circles, even a bunch of electric indoor 3D stuff, and some helicopters. Even got some non-3D stuff like a huge giant-scale radial powered stearman on its maiden flight.

Here's me flying cirkus style.....

Great picture, Phil.

But, that old Web site ... pfffft. That's sooooo 2005.

Just you wait for the new one. I promise it's worth it.
