I discovered a couple days ago that my camera is sensitive in the infrared regime by observing a TV remote control through it. So if you've ever wondered what the signals would look like when you press buttons on the remote, here you go. Now I need to get an IR filter for my camera, which blocks out all the visible light and only images the infrared.
I have been continuing with my flying lessons. I'm up to about 13 hours by now. I will probably be soloing soon, once my instructor is satisfied that I'm consitently hitting my landings well.
