Flying using a new camera mount

Play Video - Windows Format 3:15 minutes (14 Meg)



Using a new camera mount system on the control bar, Frank and I explore the new angles at our disposal. Thanks to Jeff from Jeffs Flight Log for help setting up this mount.

Below are some closeup images of my home made mud guard for the front wheel, to keep rocks from being flicked into my propellor.

gadget states: I like the A frame mount!! I have been wondering where to mount my camera. I think this is a good place. I can turn it on/off and point it anywhere. GOOD IDEA! November 4, 2005, 7:15 pm

Unknown states: can you please show us some close ups of the video camera mount on the control bar? I am still trying to figure out where I could mount a new sony HDV Cam on my Air Creation Buggy. The Camera weighs about 3.5lbs so it is too big for a wing tip mounting. But it takes really awesome video, any suggestions? [mail]

Unknown states: Looks like you need stripslashes() in your PHP code for the mysql output to remove all the \\\'s November 2, 2005, 5:01 pm
Casual observer states: Damien. Another nice video but not real exciting. Cut the Rio Puerco views out. We want to hear from Jeff and Frank. You\'ve got to take advantage of their good looks and talented acting ability. Frank is pretty good with a script too. Keep him away from oil changes though. You might get some Vodka in your premix. Whatever you do, don\'t give the guy a camera. He\'s a natural on the screen. November 2, 2005, 4:22 pm
Damien states: Ricardo -> The area that was flown was between Albuquerque, NM and Mt Taylor (approx 60 miles west) November 2, 2005, 10:34 am
Rob states: Loved the video. What was that piece of music at the end though? Sounded really familiar and a great tune. November 2, 2005, 9:24 am
Ricardo states: Beautiful!!!, where is that?, thank you for sharing! November 2, 2005, 5:44 am
Damien states: Mike Jude -> I am using a different microphone now, which has less noise characterestics. Its noticeable, so thats great! November 2, 2005, 4:56 am
Kiwikathy states: Another great clip. Did you make or buy the camera mount??? tell us more how you did it? November 2, 2005, 3:12 am
Mike Jude states: Amazing video again Damien, you just keep out doing yourself. I noticed even your sound editing is getting better, not that it wasn\'t ok before. You realise now that of course everyone will want to know about your new mount, so be prepared to be bombarded with questions about it. Maube you should just post some info and beat everyone to the post. Hope your holiday back here was a good one and i\'ll bet theres a video about that coming up. Cheers Damien, safe flying.

jeff_trike states: The control bar cam worked pretty nice. I like the way you turned it straight back, straight down or any other way.
