A short cross country flight to a new destination for me. Taking in the sights.

    Did you get the 3D flight path graphics thing sorted? Does it reflect the altitudes accurately? Looks great btw. P.S. Nice flight

    Hi CrayonBox, I like the movie, was it rough under the cloud? Anne wants to know what they were mining for?

    Info about Biggenden and the mine can be read about here

    Yes bumpy under clouds. When I departed at 11am from Biggenden, the thermals and cumulus were well established. I climbed to 5500 to get above it.

    I recorded the return leg on my phone, and imported the kml into google earth. Then I took sceen shots. The altitude is close to accurate. The random turns were me following corridors between cumulus. Some clouds were getting big! I landed at 1130am. The temp was 25c.

    The flight I would want to take would head northeast to the Bundaberg Rum Distillery:-) The smell in their bonded warehouse should be included in the 8 wonders of the world. Looking forward to your video of that flight.

    Nice footage and editing Crayon.  Put it on your map ;)

    I'd like to learn how to put the GPS course line into video.--   maybe you can make a how-to video on that

    Hi CB,

    Great looking flight up there amongst the clouds.  Beautiful scenery and great footage.  At one point it looked like you zoomed in on the lake on the ground.  Was this my imagination or were you using a camera with zoom capability.  Always good o see your videos.
