Default Buzzards on Take Off

This morning I took off and as Im climbing out, 4 buzzards came in my path. They went up and I went down and we missed by plenty but it did wake me up! I didnt really want to clean up any mess!

You can see the birds at about the 50 sec mark in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhqteciCk1s

Be careful everyone on your trip to OSH. If anyone has problems in the Mason MI (KTEW) area, let me know and maybe I can help.

Default Camera and setup?

The pan and zoom is cool and picture quality is great. Please tell me what you are using.
Thanks,
Brad

Im using a GoPro 360 Max mounted on my wing with a simple mount I made that screws into the wind screws that are already there.

The 360 is as amazing as the plane. I still cant believe I can film a flight, come back home and pan - zoom - and change views anyway I want. PM me with your email if you have any other questions. I am still learning the software so Im no expert but I am having fun.
