Today was the best day yet for me and AP/AV work. My brother and I got to meet to wonderful people in this industry, and to top it off they are fellow Okie's

John and Tamara Crotts with Sooner Helicam Productions, came all the way from Woodward 2 1/2 hours away to meet up with us at my place to do some flying. We learned more today about AP/AV work, then we have in the past year of doing this.

John and Tamara, we cannot thank you enough for coming all that way and sharing the day with us. And on top of that we had a blast with some darn good flying. The still shots are all taken with my Bergen Turbine and Sony SR12 (my first attempt at stills). And all of the video was shot with John's XL Gasser with HCS mount, which I gotta say I love. I can't wait to get my Tazer with HCS mount . These stills that I am posted are completely unedited (because I don't know how to do that yet). Hopefully when John gets a chance he can attach some video of the chase filming we were doing.

This just proves to me that the First Annual AP conference is going to be smash, and I can't wait to meet more people like John and Tamara.

Thank you guys very much!
Denny

Oh and Jody, can you build me a mount to go under my Turbine????

Sounds like you have a great weekend Denny...

The "XL" mount is the strongest frame that I make and will handle the turbine just fine. I plan to have one of each mount build for the AP conference so bring your turbine and we can do some great testing.

Hey Jody, I am planning on bringing my Turbine up to Chris's place when we meet to pick up our Tazer's. Do you think you could get an XL there for that gathering and we can test it out on my Turbine then?

Thanks
Denny

Yep, you were right flyjeep, and it will take even better pictures than that as soon as I get that high pitched frequency vibration gone. John noticed for me that my blades are way out of pitch and that is probably what is causing it.

Hey Flap, yea I talked to Chris on Monday and he said the birds are done, just waiting on the motors, which shipped supposedly sometime last week. Chris said as soon as he gets the motors, it will be only a matter of days before the helis are ready. So I may be up there as early as the middle of next week hopefully.
