    I am Not trying to pimp my YouTube channel. I don't post my videos here anymore. If it feels that way, go ahead and delete this.

    I got to do a lot of aerobatics in St. Augustine Florida last week and it was a tremendous amount of fun albeit completely out of my comfort zone.

    My confidence was pretty high up until we got in the plane. Of course right?

    Maneuvers I liked: Aileron Roll, Loop, Barrel roll, Immelmann, Split S and half Cuban

    Maneuvers that are terrifying: Snap Roll, Invited Spin, and sustained inverted flight. What an unnatural feeling being suspended by a lap belt.

    Biggest surprise was the sounds. You can hear the airflow shifting around the plane during different maneuvers.
    We went through all of the gopro footage and the wing cam picks up the change in sound as airflow lifts off the top wing surface and then stops during accelerated stalls.

    Every pilot should experience some form of this once.

    Thanks and sorry if this feels like self promotion. Not the intent.

    Hey, I've got some acro in that airplane. Anyone who hasn't experienced an inverted spin, or a Hammer Head, you really should try it!

    Bryan, I love your videos: humorous, self deprecating, interesting. Never boring and no fake or manufactured drama. Two thumbs up. How do you do the shots where the plane spins around the camera?

    Spencer has a 360 camera. I think this model here:
    https://store.insta360.com/us/product/one_r


    It is col and it sees everything which is fantastic. However, there is a temptation to over use it so I tried to only use footage from it sparingly so the video didn't become about the camera.
    My favorite thing about it is its ability to track in 360 for example, being able to follow the floating water bottle form front to back in the first shot.

    It is a cool camera and you can do cool stuff with it but the editing software for it is trash.
    Just getting clips from that camera that I could use in premiere took hours. They need to work on their software.

    Didn’t think the answer was going to make me laugh.

    The guy who solicits the hardest of anyone here, for his current or former employer (he won’t say.... but we al know who it is...), while always hiding behind a pseudonym (wait do we know it’s a he, even?)....

    ... found Bryan-y linking to YT videos he made, to be objectionable shilling?

    LOL LOL LOL. Classic. Wow.

    Gives me an idea for a sub-forum request.

    Aerobatics are the most fun thing to do besides sex, and sex is barely better. A 330 in the hangar, with my name on it, would be great!

    That's Patty's flight school, and her airplane.
