COMPUTER RECOMMENDATIONS
CLICK HERE FOR SOME SIMPLE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO KEEP YOUR COMPUTER RUNNING SMOOTHLY.

Due to the excessive time it takes to clean badly infected computers or to do a complete wipe and restore I have decided to close my computer repair business. It is not economically feasible for me to spend many hours and days when I would have to charge you many times what the computer is worth. Click on the COMPUTER RECOMMENDATIONS link above for my suggestions.

Weekend at the Rapp Farm

My first drone videos.
I bought a DJI Phantom 3 Standard drone. My first flights were while we were down at the Rapp Farm and spent the afternoon on a gravel bar along the Black River above Clearwater Lake. Here's the liftoff and first minute of video. Had it in "Beginner Mode" limiting me to 100 foot altitude and 100 foot radius. Didn't have any problems calibrating and doing the pre-flight. I think this is gonna be fun!

 

And then I had to fly it over water.
Even though I had seen a friend lose his drone in the river I had to at least attempt to fly it over water. The gals sitting in the Black River seemed to be good subject matter. Here's a one minute clip of that.

 

Another minute from my first flight video. I just liked the scenery and I do a 360 degree rotation near the end. Gotta learn to be a little more gentle and slower on the joysticks!

I captured the video of the flyover for President Ford's funeral off of C-Span.  In total 21 F-15 Strike Eagles were used along with KC-135 tankers for refueling.  They refueled a total of 5 times during the mission, the last time at night while returning.  The 21 ship formation consists of a single lead plane and then 5 groups of 4 planes each.  Deanna is in the last 4 ship formation that has the missing man pull out and go vertical.  You can see the afterburners going skyward in the shot thru the trees.  When you see 4 aircraft with one ship pulling skyward, Deanna is in the plane on the left-hand side of the one pulling out.  Click on the links below to watch the videos.
