Here is a video I made for the current AV challenge on RCGroups:

Here is the post that I made on the forum about the video:
Here's my contribution. The good thing about living in a city that spans a river, there are lots of bridges to shoot. When coming up with an idea for this competition, I thought that I would start at one end of the city and just go down the river shooting each of the bridges and then put it all together. I called it good after the third flight. The reason should be clear enough when you see it.
The 2nd and 3rd flights were shot about 1/2 hour apart. The wind was blowing about 15mph that day. I would have waited for a better day, but it's been rainy and crummy for days and I didn't know if I would get another day without clouds. If you are paying attention on the second landing, you can see the wind stop my plane dead in the air and shift it about 4 ft to the right when I am only about 15ft up. I am really glad that my plane has such a large wing and slow flight characteristics.
P.S. I don't know why, but on exporting my vid editing software left a gap and put itself down the right side of the frame. Never see it happen before, but I can't figure it out and I am tired or re-exporting it. See if you can guess what it is.
