Creative editing of raw 360 flight video by son_of_flubber
Most of the 360 soaring videos that I've seen are underwhelming. I never know where to 'look'. But I'm really impressed by this video. It edits the raw 360 footage into a fixed_point_of_view format. No doubt a lot of time spent on editing but the result seem to catch the excitement of...

WX Block life? by [email protected]
Is there a limit to how old unused WX Block should be kept? I use a bit over half doing a full polish/seal/coat on my Pegasus. Since I only do the shiny-up work every couple of years due to general laziness, I'd like to use the leftover stuff to avoid wasting it (and save some money.) I keep it...
