Default RE: Todays fun

Bob
My jump plane is a nice slow flyer so I don't bother deliberately slowing down, though I do reduce the throttle back to 50% just prior to Dude doing his thing.
I'm in the process of building new camera mounts and testing footage for two videos at the moment. The shots I posted were from the first of these.
To increase the likelyhood of dude being in frame the jump plane pilot was asked to fly slightly one wing low (towards the side the camera was mounted) for the run in and drop and the camera was angled back from the vertical by about 5 - 10deg.( lucky guess!)

Regards

Gordon
