We can do that for you Paul, like at the Cricket/footie.

For an extra fee (the equivalent of the repair bill) we'll even do it inverted.

Thanks Gazz.

Dave has done millions (approximately) of them, but he flies so smoothly you haven't noticed. Smile

My video of his flight from 2 wks ago is still to be edited. (I put more effort into other's vids than my own).

And you'd be right Gazz. I haven't done one. I will have to sort that out.

Haven't rolled the heil, haven't auto'd the heli... and if you noticed the figure 8's are outwards not inwards. Need to work on all of these. All part of the fun of flying helicopters.

I have had it wrong all this time......I didn't know it was supposed to be "fun"!

Someone once said, "Playing the guitar is easy..all the notes are there, you just have to find the right one's."
It's the same as heli flying, the sticks are there, you just have to move them the right way. Smile
Now, here's how it is REALLY done!

Nicely flown as always, Dave.

Tested Out new Hd Camera on Jason's Sky fun and Skidz Heli.
two Things I found was i Think i need too do is pick up a High Speed Micro SD Card as It suggests in Manual as it need this for transferring of all frames during recording to Micro SD.
The Other Thing is Dave is probably not a good idea to Mount the Camera on The Canopy as it Vibrates a hell of a lot, So I Uploaded Clip of Heli Flying to show the Vibration.
Maybe we can Try again in a better Position on Heli as well as I'm going to pick up a High Speed Micro SD Card This Afternoon which they Recommend.

Yea steve you will definately get a better quality with the high speed card.
Picture quality looked good when plane was stationery so this leads me to
think that it will be nice and sharp with the new card

Nice flying Jason and Dave.

Yeah it's a shame about the vibration.
Here's an old clip of mine showing the "Dodgy Brother's" setup that seems to work on mine.

I think the vibration would be much less if we didn't stick the camera to the canopy. Next time, I'll take the canopy off and stick the camera directly to the battery poking out the front of the frame. The frame is ok for vibes as the controller log has vibration charts in it and that was showing ok. I reckon I just chose a high vibe place to put the camera.

Edit: might need some of BB's magic blue foam. (better get the HD camera on order!)

Hey that looks good Steve, I reckon you'll do much much better with a faster card. the video is defiantly in HD as I d/loaded it from you tube and had a close look at it. With a faster card you wont loose frames and also the sound will be properly sinked as well. did you notice that the sound had me landing before the plane did and backing off when it was accelerating towards the end. It was sinked at the start but video seemed to slowly lag more and more behind the sound as it went on.

Boggy strips...Bah Humbug!! Don't need ANY strip with the Heli. Smile

Here's a few shots from my Dodgy Brothers camera setup on the Trex. I tried getting Garry's plane air to air, but the camera was tilted down too much. Oh well. There are a few loops and piro's thrown in for fun.

You got a couple of shots of my Glider in there.
I am surprised the picture was very stable considering it is hanging under your chopper.

Thanks Paul & Gazz.

Because the camera is suspended by.....gaffer tape, the vibrations are not transmitted to it. There is a 'wobble" caused by the downwash, but it's bearable.

That looks pretty cool when the aircraft is cutting through the fog.
I thought flying in fog was supposed to cause RF isssues?
