Pilots tell stories of their adventures at the landing zone while waiting for good wind or at the evening gatherings. No one would tell a story on camera except this made up one. I had already made this news set up in HitFilm so I used it for some comedy.

Splododyne News Network Cracks The UFO Story!!!

Last week, Glide News Global revealed leaked video of paraglider pilots using secret UFO technology.

Now an anonymous source describes the fantastic abilities of the technology:

Well, let's see. I was flying my paraglider, attempting to land on a train, when it went through a tunnel. Ram air sucked me through the tunnel, and right as I spit out the other side, over the edge of a cliff, full stall, recovered, and flew away. Then went on a big XC.

https://vimeo.com/697696978/d9b3d15dc5

PROBLEM:
Vimeo changed the way private video settings work. Now 'hidden from vimeo' works with BB code but not links while 'unlisted' works with links but not BB code.
hidden https://vimeo.com/638479702 Link NO, BBcode YES
unlisted https://vimeo.com/697696978/d9b3d15dc5 Link YES, BBcode NO

GOAL:
Hide a video from public display on Vimeo but make embed, BB code, and link all work.
Links are good for email and as a backup viewing method in case an embed does not work for someone.

SOLUTION:
I had to duplicate the video by uploading it again and copying settings to set one to unlisted and the other to hidden.

LONG TERM SOLUTION:
Move my stuff to Rumble. Technicalities may or may not be better but YT and Vimeo are evil.

I am not able to edit the earlier post with this video so this new one.

New video. Pilots might provide aerial footage. If so I'll update with it.

Good video. Thanks.

There were some sketchy launches in there. The one at 2:15 was particularly troubling. Flying backward - especially at launch - is an invitation for disaster. I've seen a number of Rick's videos that have started out looking like that launch, but the participants weren't so lucky to fly away.

Be careful everyone!!

Thanks!

Can you all identify the people in the video? They should be in the credits. I like to put names in the corner if I know who is launching. Mr. Kilpatrick and Mr. Crye. Who are the others?

Didn't have any 4WD video. Lots of wash out from sun and haze. The audio transitions aren't good and the stabilization, de-shaking, has some jumps. I want to improve some things but work keeps me busy in the mowing season.
