Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

My pleasure...  the video will be published in a week.  :)

No Irish pictures in the 2016 edition, couple in the 2015 issue.
Now I think I'll need some Irish scenery in the 2017 edition, we better start checking the calendar!   ;)

Try not to run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas....... all at the same time.

What! You didn't like 2 hours playtime compressed down to 10 seconds!!!     ;D

Began as a joke few years back but now I always do one, great for a quick reminder after you've seen the whole thing, if you can stand it that is.    :-X

Wasn't able to watch all 2 hours I'm afraid :-\, you didn't put all that together in your lunch break I know! ;D What I did see was certainly interesting.  Inter-cutting with "B" roll helps to improve the flow of the film and maintain interest doesn't it. :)
Why do you keep the wind over microphone volume so high? I found it distracts from the background music, but maybe that's just me!

Nice little film, pity I couldn't understand any of the dialogue though!!! Glad you all enjoy yourselves in Iceland 8)

Cheers, I'll be hosting a seminar at Cork Uni. during my next visit, "RC Model Icelandic and how to tell it apart from made up words!".

Nahhh, I had to give upp dinner too! B rolls aren't just good during lunch!   ;)

The wind is a constant blow, no pun intended, but hopefully it'll be a much less problem for this year as I believe a suitable mic with a wind cover will be used with the videocamera, or so I'm told.

Or simply reduce the volume during editing ;)

Then the local viewers complain about the lack of engine sounds...   hard lot to keep happy!  ;)

Must be that inbuilt wind filter!   ;D
