Default A birds eye view of my field using my gopro hd

ThiS is my new gopro hd mounted to my 20yr old "rebuilt" ugly stick. Its not edited so lots of crap that makes me wish i had a movie maker/editor. By the way, if you have one i can borrow to download for windows 7 email me.
Ps
The video has some waves in it, so the horizontal stab isnt moving lol!

Nice video Crashland. That makes me want to get into fixed wings. It looks like fun.

Yes, and I do. But you can't fly as far away with helis unless you have a FPV setup. You're really limited by how well you can see the bird. With airplanes, you pretty much always know which direction you're headed. With helis, not so much.

Very nice vid. Could you post pictures of you camera installation on your plane? It is one of the most difficult things I seem to have trouble with.

Regards,

Robert

I used one of the self adhesived mounts it came with. I mounted it right behind the wing aimed just a bit to the right of the rudder. I ironed the covering real good & cleaned the covering area with denatured alcohol then just stuck it to it.

Thanks Crashland. That's simple enough. Its intersting that it holds so good in spite of vibration and wind resistance.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Not a problem, glad to help. I did add a braided light cord to the camera and attatch it to a wing bolt just for added security though.
