Default on board camera

So, before I go and dump my plane in the dirt......

How much difference do you think 7oz of camera will matter on a 63" .40 trainer??

Zip, zero, nada, as long as you maintain the proper c/g and balance. It might take a few more feet to take off, and need a click or two more throttle, and land a tad hotter, but shouldn't be a problem. Post some video

GREAT!

I haven't stripped the camera down yet, so it still uses 2xAA's and a USB cable.

I can't make any promises on the video, this'll be my first shot at it.... but I'll post whatever I got. OH YEA!

The new generation of Mini Cams are impressive, have a look at this system that you control while wearing a set of glasses that give you the view from the plane!

Just so you know....... IT MADE NO DIFFERENCE! I even had to add some weight to the tail for CG. I coudn't even tell in the take-off distance.

I got two videos. The first (dumb) was shot out the side of the plane.... right behind the exhaust (dumb) so it looks good for about 30 seconds untill the view blurs beyond recognition..... I wont do that again.

The second one, I strapped to the belly of the plane. AWESOME!

Now I gotta figure out how to post a 45Mb video! Guess I need to find an .AVI to MP4 converter or something.

Here ya' GO!

My first video. Actually it's been edited so it's a compilation of my first and second.

The CVS camcorder has much better resolution than this..... but I'm still learning about video. I lost a lot of resolution somewhere.

ENJOY!

We loaded my CVS camcorder on my buddy's overpowered Twister too.

It's a wild ride! About 3/4 the way through he does a dive/spin..... very cool! It'll make you dizzy
