Excelllent production Major - and proud that "I was there".The stirring music gave me goosebumps.
Jet flights above the cloud were good (but could you see it?) and the camera copes pretty well with shooting directly into the sun, which I guess is unavoidable with flying shots.
Just remind me what is your suggestion of a "starter" HD camera ? I'm getting more interested!
Must get a Teddy as well.
Nice one Sir !!!
Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Hi Yoss.

The camera is a Go Pro Hero HD and you can see the specs at It's what most fpv fliers are using since it's only 160 g. The pan and tilt frame I use on Yo Mama comes from Germany at Picture

The cloud thing caught us all by surprise. In order to get a fore and aft shot on the jets, I do two flights since I don't have pan facilities. On the second flight (aft shot), the fog rolled in quickly and in a vertical climb the Harpoon completely vanished. needless to say I got her down in a hurry. Help

I didn't realise the Harpoon airframe flexed that much and I wasn't even jamming it. affraid

I liked the straffing shot of the van down the lane. Glee

BTW, if you're using HD on an i/c plane, you need plenty of padding as you saw with the Stearman, otherwise you get a wavy picture.

It was a shame my SD camera was playing up or I would have got more shots of other fliers. I shot a fair amount of footage on it but the tape was corrupted. Mad

John (chairman) had some problems with his machine, which was a real shame. I always love watching him fly that bad boy. geek
