Default Heli-to-plane filming

This was just a proof of concept test. We wanted to test angles, distances, and formation flying for a future video we want to shoot. I didn't bother with dampening or gimbals or headspeed for this test. Its just mounted with 3M tape on the Rx battery with no canopy. Also running 2,100 RPM on my 3D setup so its far from ideal as an AP platform. Again, just testing some ideas.

Impressive. Nice flying, video quality and low vibration heli. What type of camera/heli are you flying?

JoaquinEdit: Just answered my own question by viewing the title of the clip!
