The first videos will probably be more still images because that is what I have to tell the story. Besides model airplanes I hope to get back to more science and other videos. Mainly I just hope to keep learning, improve, and have fun. I have been thinking a lot about what makes an interesting story for the intended audience. My most recent narrated video is a story about how I decided to build a free flight PeeWee 30 model and what I needed to learn. I have much to learn about narration and editing but will keep working on it.

I am really close to finishing up a couple of free flight models for the 2018 contest season. The Witch Hawk 500 is my first larger glow powered free flight using a K&B .19 engine for power. This is the first time running an engine on bladder pressure so I have been running it on a test stand.
Almost completed is an E36 NOS free flight model, design by Don DeLoach of a classic glow model the Eureka. My skill level is still where I do not feel comfortable with really fast climbing airplanes, this should be more my speed.

I have made one short flight with the 1/2 A Streak model built this winter, broke the fragile plastic prop and it started to rain so did not get anymore flights in.

In the works are a couple of videos, one about free flight history and the older design models I have built because of my interest in model aviation history. Another video is about my model aviation history, and most of the different aspects of the hobby that I have enjoyed.
