Damien states: I do not have a link to the Aerolux prop. I believe Northwing are the distributors in the US. Best to get in contact with them. June 16, 2009, 7:38 am
Unknown states: Hi damien and congrats to your new bird, I'm just woundering if you have a link to the that AEROLUX propp off yours ? June 15, 2009, 4:46 am
Damien states: Russ, found the clamp on Amanzon. The clamp is called Bogen - Manfrotto Super Clamp with Standard Stud June 9, 2009, 6:25 pm
Damien states: Robin Hood - thanks!
Russ - camera is a Sony DCR-HC96 miniDV video camera using a Sony 0.6 wide angle lense (it is mounted on the control bar using a Manfrotto 3025 mount - search for it in google and a clamp, not sure part number of the clamp. I have a 3.6 mm bullet cam on the wing tip routed into the Sony Camcorder. I turn the Sony camcorder on/off/record using a Lanc cable. I move the Sony camera manually in flight. Wing Tip camera is fixed. Hope that helps. June 9, 2009, 6:23 pm

Russ Holm states: Nice video and trike. Do you have a detailed desciption of your camera and how it is controlled or wired up for those great shots? Details of the camera type (DV,Hardrive, or other) ,lense,connections, to remote cameras would be nice. Thanks in advance. Russ in Wisconsin. June 9, 2009, 11:08 am
Robin Hood states: Damien What a great looking trike. And four stroke..you make me darn envious. Just looks and sounds that much better.

And of course as alwys the video is just the best. June 8, 2009, 5:54 am

Damien states: Everyone, thanks for the great feedback!
Trikenut, yes that is an HKS engine.
Robin Hood - not sure what is going on. Try the MP4 version - it plays in quicktime. Otherwise, go to the vimeo link. If you scroll down I have it set so you can download the source file which is the wmv.
Tracy Roberts - I'm sure there are some interesting places along the cliffs, it would make for some great hikes. June 7, 2009, 7:09 pm

Tracy Roberts states: Excellent video. Fantastic area to have to fly around. I wonder if there are Indian Caves within some of those cliffs? Maybe an opertunity to fly level and along the cliffs will present itself in the future. Enjoyed the flight and great looking Trike. Good job!!!! June 7, 2009, 3:37 pm
Jack states: Great video,sound and editing! Your work just gets better with time! I'm still a dreamer so keep those videos coming! June 7, 2009, 3:12 pm
Scott Blixt states: Great video Damien! Thanks for sharing. And love your new trike. I DLd the Mp4 and it looks real good on my 24" iMac. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more of your videos June 7, 2009, 12:04 pm
Skycat states: Really enjoyed the video! Thanx much! June 7, 2009, 11:57 am
Robin Hood states: Hi Damien Downloaded by right-clicking on "Play Video-Windows Format" and saving to my normal folder. It shows a .com extension and my XP cannot find anything to play it with. AQny suggestions? And congrats with the new plane!! June 7, 2009, 6:07 am
Jim Monhan states: Unknown states: Hey Damien!
Great video & kewl toy.
I was wondering when you would be up and flying again.
I may use your camera info on my 'new' old flying toy, a 1973 Grumman AA1B.
Keep the videos coming; I know its a lot of work, but you do it well and I'm sure there are a lot of armchair flyers & wannabes, as well as dreamers who won't get the chance to fly.
You are giving them a gift.
Good job,
Jim, used to be and stall a wannbe triker in Corpus! June 6, 2009, 7:12 pm

Damien states: Tom, you may have a slow connection. I just tried Vimeo and it goes black while it buffers at the start. June 5, 2009, 1:20 pm
tom cramer states: vimeo just goes black when I hit the play button but I really like the navijo June 5, 2009, 1:13 pm
Damien states: Thanks Tom. I prefer using a proper video camera on the control bar that gets the bread and butter shots than the bullet cameras. You definetly can notice the difference. Thanks for pointing it out. June 5, 2009, 12:18 pm
Tom Nielsen states: Great video - your picture quality is much better and your sound/voice impressively clear during flight. Great job and congrats on the Bummble bee. June 5, 2009, 11:10 am

Sebastian De Beer (Perth) states: Wow - very nice new trike Damien. Congrats! And "topless" too! I was just about to ask if you had made any changes to your video system but you are way ahead of me. Is your touring screen custom made for this trike or did you transfer your old one across? Great video - thanks for sharing! Cheers Sebastian June 4, 2009, 6:52 pm
