In this particular case all the hand flying was done by Greg. I even removed the passenger stick to make myself comfortable.

Default another VIRB video

So, as you can see in the photo from post #9 there is a garmin virb attached to the wing. Here is some of the video from that day:

http://youtu.be/QbOBG5kDqgU

The camera is mounted via the stock VIRB curved mount, drilled through the middle and countersunk for the tank screw, the adhesive tape and protective film is still on the mount for padding, but the mount is not permanently attached to the plane.

In the early morning the camera picked up some glare while flying into the sun, this has never happened to me before and I expect it is from the camera being mounted farther aft than in previous attempts.

Thanks for watching!
