From what I saw it looks good but there are issues with your video codec.

subs17 in the immortal words of one of Australia's NOT so famous ex-politicians: "Please explain".  ;D

My explanation was posted in several places but not on this forum because I did not think it would be that important but here it is anyway. The best quality .AVI file was made with FRAPS but no one is going to download a multi GigaByte AVI video file nor am I going to upload one. So this high quality video was crunched down by MovieMaker2 to what is seen online at 100Mbs. I make no apologies for the quality because it is OK for what it is at 7 minutes running time in that file size limitation.

Your movie ran for 2mins and then crashed and the codec error came up.

subs17 it is good to be cryptic in some circumstances, however it is helpful if you provide more detail about what software you are using to view the video and did you download the entire file?

As a consolation I did another quick circuit with same version 1 KAHU (to better see the brake chute - which will be enlarged in next version). The FRAPS .AVI was remade at the highest quality MovieMaker2 will provide. Also I realise that at some point I can use Nero Vision (latest version) to make perhaps better quality videos (WMV or other formats) with some editing; but this is in the future when the final version of the KAHU is released.

Tomcat Grumman F-14D 0.9 public release Video

83Mb .WMV video made from FRAPS .AVI of first flight/circuit at NAS Nowra with Dino's Excellent Tomcat! Nice to have a power on approach (even if it is a bit rough/low here). Tomcat configured dirty with hook down (for AoA indexer use) at takeoff to reduce workload.
