Default Chicago Aerial Video Needed

Hello, I'm looking for someone to capture HD aerial video of the Chicago skyline area on 7/6/11 in the evening. Will only need about 30 minutes of actual aerial time. Please message me with your equipment, links to online samples of your work and what you'd charge

Better visit the fpv section over at rcgroups.com, there you will find more people passionate about flying with video gear.

Hi, I'd be glad to assist you with this remote control aerial video footage providing the equipment I use is suitable to your needs and that "evening" isn't later than an hour after sunset.

Camera:
- GoPro HD 1080P at 30fps or 720P at 60fps 120degree wide angle lens
- Secondary camera for flying and composition

Aircraft:
- Skywalker (heavy 3.4kgs...more stable) flies best between 30mph & 40mph but can safely fly up to 55mph for short periods
- Range 5000ft guaranteed, should be able to fly out further to about 10000ft
- Altitude can fly up to O’Hare’s and Midway's controlled airspace (up to 3000ft)...can go higher where legal
- Durations of 20-30mins per battery pack (have 4 packs for consecutive flights and can recharge unused packs onsite while flying)
- Launch/Landing space of at least 100ft with limited tall obstructions surrounding

Link to great skyline video I took from Montrose Beach, Chicago May 2011
- Footage shot after sunset...judge quality yourself
- Skyline footage begins after 1 minute into flight...so stay tuned!
- Feel free to look at other footage...has been progressively better as I've improved equipment

Price:
$150 for project as described below
- Will deliver all raw footage in MP4 format (transfer onsite on completion of flight(s) )
- Can review footage onsite for reshoots (my laptop isn't the best so it may skip a bit...if you have HDvideo capable laptop that would be preferred)

Thanks, Adam! I think we're looking for something a little more stable-almost gyro or gimbal stabilized.
