Cool video, thanks for posting.

Ok, I've got my asbestos suit on and I'll wade in and see what happens. I'm only a new comer to the r/c hobby (less than one year) and probably less time in the video area. I've never posted to this forum before (I'm a lurker), but I have viewed alot of aerial videos and this one is incredible. One of the things that I noticed was not only the high definition but the lack of shake from the airplane that I see in so many of the other videos. Is there a shake reduction part of this camera that allows this, or is it done in a post production software program, or does this guy just have superior piloting skills?

Thanks for any thoughts and shared knowledge.

The reason the picture is so clear, is because it's a very expensive HDV camera that is strapped to the plane. They are video taping the scene rather than using a 900 mHz or 2.4 gHz radio downlink. The youtube version is compressed and resolution is more like what your are used to seeing.

It is also using little or no compression. Most uploaded clips are compressed considerably to help download quickly.

From what I can gather on the cue-air web site, (my japanese is rough) it is a commercial company that does aerial video for commercials, movies, etc.

The clip is still neat!

Is anyone else curious as to the massive shadows that play onto the nose of the aircraft as it is doing the loops? Somehow they have to have a camera mounted out in front of the plane to get that angle. On that size of plane it would have to be a fairly spindly affair for weight reasons. It looks to me like there is some kind of structure behind the camera out in front of the nose that is casting a big shadow as the loop is executed. I am baffled by the angle as it does not seem that any part of the aircraft would be in a position to cast those shadows? I have watched the sun angle carefully and tried to understand what is casting what shadow and have yet to figure it out?

What is the diference between the Challenger II from AMD (US$114) and the Challenger from KMP (US$ 289)

The links are.

AMD: http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/produc...76d493e8b4e8c1
KMP: http://www.kmp.ca/product_info.php?c...d34b37dda036b2

In relation with the extra weight the specification of Cue Air Picture is similar. The plane (a Maxair Drifter is 2400grs)

Saludos

The only difference I see is the size. The KMP model has a larger wing span.

Critian 10'' on any plane it's a lot more wing area,,both planes will fly with the same size engines,,,,I have some experiecne with most airplanes I have flow quiet a few and I can tell you by just looking at the specs that the AMD challenger will be a flying brick and will only get worst if you add a Video camera to it.

The KMP will be a Piper cub kind of flying it should float pretty good,,I know the difference on $$$$ but you will only get what you pay for,,if I were to buy one I would buy the KMP!!!

si hablo!!!

what do you mean by raise 18oz extra??? wil that be the extra weight on the airplane you are trying to carry???

If so 18oz it's over 1lb and it's a lot of weight for pretty much any plane but if you got the KMP challenger it should do ok with it since it has a much bigger wing area and span.

I have flown a big Bee wich it's like a big glow powered Slow Stick it has lot's of lift and wing area and I installed a Sony TRV-38 on it wich weights 1 1/2lb that's pretty darn heavy and it did very well but of course it's a different plane and it would be the perfect Aerial video Plataform...
here's the vide I made a while back!!!

Amigo, escribire un poco en catellano para explicarme bien:

- Necesito armar un avion que me permita llevar una camara DV que pesa unos 700 gramos. La idea es tomar imagenes de buena calidad. Yo dirijo una pequeña productora de TV en Chile y hacemos videos sobre naturaleza (ver www.naturefilms.cl).

Entonces quiero complementar nuestro trabajo con la vista aerea. El mejor ejemplo de lo que quiero hacer es el video de CUE AIR PICTURES (ver aqui http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTDuGaTRiJU ). La idea es montar un personaje muy similar al oso que ellos usaron.

Mis dudas son ¿ como armo el avion?....¿que volara mejor un challenger, un big bee, el driften, un piper????. La pagina de Cue Air pictures tiene la ficha tecnica de su avion que vuela con 3 giroscopos.

Funcionara electrico?????

eso es amigo te agradecere tus comentarios mi correo es cpacheco@naturefilms.cl para que hablemos directamente si te parece.

Gracias

Cristian

I was watching the video again and noticed that in the shots from the front of the plane that would have been into a mirror, the writing on the side of the plane is correct. Wouldn't it be backwards if it was a mirror image?

I wasn't sure if anyone else noticed this.

You can easily flip the image in editing software to correct for that. However the plane would then appear to be traveling in the opposite direction in relation to the other camera's POV.
