    started a topic I think I hooked one.

    I think I hooked one.

    I took a young man and his girlfriend flying a few weeks ago. He is a pilot and they both seemed to enjoy it quite a bit. Today he sent me this link and I am pretty sure I hooked one. The good news and the bad news. The bad new is its 15 minutes long. The good news is its 15 minutes about ME!

    if you look in the text of his video you can see what he uses. Most of the in flight was his gopro attached to my helmet. He may have smoothed it some in post production. If that does not answer you, post the comment on the video, I am sure you will get a response.

    Joe, great video. I am really interested to know what video gear he used. It is unusually smooth for a gyro and the only time I was able to get video this smooth in a gyro was when using a hand held video cam on a gimbal device known as the DJI Osmo

    Thank you. Actually on part of each flight , I do both slow flight and a vertical descent to let them experience the differences in what they might be used too. I warn them in advance it might not feel right, but I promise its normal...never had one freak yet.

    I usually won't sit through a 15 minute YouTube video but I really enjoyed that.
    Joe sure lives in a nice place
