What`s Happening???


Recommended Posts

...I have several adhesive mounting bases (for want of a better word) so I stuck one to the front, in the center of the wind-screen, about 10 inches from the top! I can see the screen and I can reach over the top to start and stop the recording...

Interesting; the camera moves a little in relation to the screen, so it must be a flexible mount. Still very smooth footage; no prop turbulence to deal with. Very nice music too- a great ad for our movement. (Just don't get too close to the fluffy white stuff.)

It is interesting because the camera can`t move so I`m assuming it was just the Drifter moving around, there was turbulence! apparently the camera does have some inbuilt stabilization so it could be the camera making adjustments.

 

I`ve just started using the GoPro Hero 8 Black and I`ve got a lot to learn! by the way! in the photo the camera looks much larger than it really is due to the way I took the photo! it doesn`t impair my vision at all because I`m actually looking over the top of it. Oh! it can`t come off either.20200921_170058.jpg.3ff0dddf0d4098bbf4de0527d824984c.jpg

Terrible bug this flying bug and now I`ve caught the video bug. Last Friday I was working with the excavator, here on our property, I needed a break so I went flying, shot some footage then put it together.

 

In the afternoon, I took up Rachel Platte and her father, who is up here for Rachel`s birthday! Rachel lives a couple of hundred meters up the road and has flown with me previously but for her father, it was his first Ultralight flight.

 

Just a side not! a while ago, Rachel brought a lady friend of hers here, for her first Ultralight flight! the lady was so impressed that she said she was going to learn to fly a Drifter so I gave her the information she needed! last Friday, Rachel told me the lady is now taking flying lessons, up in Darwin, where she lives.

On the weekend these guys turned up to see what Drifter flying is all about, so I showed them! I don`t know why the video screen is black but footage is there once you start it.
