I think it’s a idea worth considering . You would need buy off from Jacob as it takes his personal time to set this up on a monthly basis.

I like the in motion theme, but it may exclude participants who don’t or can’t fly a model.

Well it is the yr. 2018 most of us have a way to vid our engines, could be just simply "on vid"
either moving or static to qualify. People will vote based on how well it performs, if it's interesting
how well the effort is presented, type of engine, is it getting the job done well in use car, boat, plane etc.

This sounds like an interesting idea. We would have to decide whether the videos be of just the engines or of the models in motion, or both.

LOL! It probably wouldn’t take too long to put together. Or you could do it! Eyebrows

Balogh you can take any uploaded video of yours on YouTube and rename it resize the duration
using the edit tools. Basically pick out the portion of the video you wish to present as a entry.

Example here I edited a video saved it as another file so I could keep the original full flight
originally posted. I just wanted the best speed pass of a stock prop on a TD .010.

Just 19 seconds worth:

How about a maximum 30 second video of anything Cox powered? The more exciting the better!

I am not much of a video editor and will still have to understand how to cut the best 30s out of a 10m video.. Very Happy

Thanks Brad, your help, as always, is appreciated. I will work on my video until it becomes one of the best COX ads of recent times...knowing there are not too many, though... Very Happy

Perhaps instead of replacing the static “Engine of the Month” photography with a video each month, a blend can be found between the two.
For example, a video competition could be held four times a year with the picture competition the remaining eight.
Or, possibly alternating each month.
Just a thought.

I'm not going to replace the Cox Engine of the Month, don't have to worry about that.
