Yep one of the best videos of a fast boat clear and the boat was in the picture.where was it taken, and I bet you have to wait ages for you boat to come in if it stops in the middle of that lake.

Thanks guys  ;D

There's more speed to find there somewhere Martin, just plodding forward, not getting to the water as often as required really.

HS93, we are here http://www.hitta.se/SearchCombi.aspx?vad=&var=ut%f6gatan+malm%f6 (http://www.hitta.se/SearchCombi.aspx?vad=&var=ut%f6gatan+malm%f6) you can see the our jetty and FSR-V course in the water (it's been adjusted since then ;) ) We have a rescue boat to get the boats back O0

See you haven't got the hang of taking videos then Ian. Not out of focus, not shaky and the boat is in shot all of the time. Rubbiish.
You should have a word with Danny, the videos of his boats are all yours isn't. ;)

Seriously, great video one of the clearest I've seen. O0

Ian i know what you mean mate the weather here has been sunny but windy which isnt the best combo for a hydro as you know,that said she does handle it but id like to get some decent conditions to really let her rip and do some fine tuning.Richard sometimes videos lose a lot of quality depending on where you upload them to,i find utube to be one of the wrost so far.I have recently started to use photobuckett which seems far better.Havent yet tried rcuvideos yet but ill give it a go see if its even better.

Hi Dicky, can't take credit for the video, that goes to Ted, I'll let him know you were impressed :)  Saw your video from the New Forest, nice boats you have there, not for me but impressed anyway, maybe when I'm even older...... I was surprised at the quality as it was taken with a mobile phone.
First time I have tried RCU video but the quality seems good, I will use them again. I was using Putfile but they removed a load of pics and vids for some reason so thay have lost my patronage....
