Default Quad Rotor Boat Video One More Video Added

End of the Oklahoma boating season prompts us to get the video camera out.

First Fly By is last Thursday evening. 120 MPH+ with 60 gallons of gas.

Zoom lenses do not do justice to speed.

The remaining Fly By's today at the "Island" Not much room to get a run. Negotiate a turn on the left of the screen and hope no one is there. Limited to about 115 MPH with the remaining 50 or so gallons of gas.

Slowing down fast for the turn in the last 2 shots.

Adding throttle very slowly each time. The stock Bravo drive lived all season using this technique. A little help from a few ounces of Prolong also.

If the video does not run for you. Right click on the link and savi it to your machine before runing it. Enjoy

*************UPDATE************

First time out in the boat early this spring.

Way Cool Video. On one of the runs when he is going right to left, it sounds like a little more than "adding throttle very slowly."

I have never posted a video link. How did you do this? Is the sizing small to maintain image quality, or because of file size limitations?

Thanks for sharing this. I'm certain it will be watched tons over the winter for a "fix."

Video is small for file size. I can get full screen perfect clairity but the file is huge.

You have to upload video to the net somewhere and then link to it in order to post it.
