I love the Sebastian video. You can get a lot of NSFW on that stretch of beach.
Was that Daveski in his FW at the Inlet?
Gabor, I will be joining you guys soon. I have the bug to build another one. We will have a good start on the east coast Morons.
Nice videos Mike. Keep'em coming.
Loved those Mike. Liked your choice of music, they were all very appropriate to the various phase of flight right down to cutting loose on the last one. It's been great having you describe your flights but to now be able to see them has been even better.
Nice smooth rotors with little evidence of stick shake on your little demo shot on the dawn patrol, congratulations, looks as though she is a sweet flying machine. Loved your flight down that stretch of beach in the early morning, I assumed the sun was rising, with another airborne enthusiast coming in from the left on a microlight.
Been thinking of doing a helmet mount but find it can be a little distracting with all the movement though that can be reduced with editing. Problem is one does need to keep the head swiveling to keep a good look-out. The fixed mount is OK but will only look straight ahead
Helipaddy sorted that by having two cameras mounted on his machine and then inter-playing between the two which I thought was a good idea.
Thank you fellas! My camera is a GoProHero HD, GyroRon turned me on to it. I have it mounted to my helmet with one of their mounts. The only bummer is you have to guess at your aim point, as there is no monitor. I filmed a killer flight, only to find all you could see was the stick and my sneakers. We have some choice flying areas, but you have to cross the water somewhere. Last weekend the ocean was unusually clear, and calm. I saw dozens of giant spotted stingrays, and schoolie fish. I could easily see the bottom 20 yards off the beach. There are turtle tracks every 25 feet or so on the beach. They have people who's job is to ride a four wheeler along the beach and count the nests. They don't even look up at me anymore, they are used to seeing me! I'm going to twist up another video or two soon.
