Default A little back yard fun

My boys decided to make a video of their trucks. They did this all on their own, and the oldest, 13, did all the video editing himself. It is kind of long, 17 minutes. They will probably break up the next ones into shorter series.

Anyway, this is their first attempt at RC video production.

Not bad, looks like a nice little play area. I am sure I speak for many on here when I say I wish I had a bigger backyard to do that to it.

Yeah, they are pretty lucky. I dug them a ditch and made a mound of dirt for them with the backhoe. We're going to add more to it soon. They also have a creek valley where they are currently building a trail into now. In all they have about 4 acres they can do what they want with. Plus we border a bunch of DNR land.

tell them to keep up the good work man! Video editing is a whole new side of things that takes a lot of practice and patience.

Dad could always get into scalers too!

Yep, we know him and are up there quite a bit. He's a great guy and really treats my boys right.

Actually, I did! As soon as I get some time I'll make a thread with some pics and what my plans are. I grabbed a used Honcho, and it came with a Hummer H2 hard body. Here is a pic I have on my phone:
