Default great video

Very nice video! Any thoughts on the other cameras? I'm in a buying mood. GoPro, Coutour (NFlight), Drift and any others you can think of?

Thanks Jerry!

I have only used my DRIFT and a borrowed GoPro. The GoPro hasn't been mounted externally, but does a great job inside the airplane. I'm sure it's fine outside too, but since I borrowed it I couldn't put screw holes in the mounting base.
My DRIFT has developed an alergy to vibration. It'll shutdown or lockup if it shakes too much - your mileage may vary. I'm still playing with it to see if I can isolate the issue. I like the drift because it's more aerodynamically shaped vs the GoPro, but I think they are all pretty good.

Sweet !

The latest Go Pro will be iCone enabled to operate it remotely.

Going to pick one up in July.

How does the Drift angle of view compare to the Go pro ?

I can do 170? or 127? depending on resolution.

It's interesting, all of these cameras have the slight rolling distortion - any idea what causes it ?

Cured the stutter with a class 10 card, but still get the roll.

Default Nice music!

I was kicked back on the couch watching this on the iPad, the wife couldn't see the screen but could here the music. I have to say, she did ask, with a peculiar look on her face; "what are you watching?". Ha! Good vid too

How was the adverse yaw? I tried putting a gopro on my wingtip but did not like how far the ball moved out. I figured I'd either have to fair it a bit or add equivalent drag on the opposite side (and changing stall behavior - which would be undesirable if doing aerobatics).

Kevin,

I used a standard supplied sticky mount for my GoPro onto the inspection panel next to the tie down under the left wing.

Field of view was excellent, no perceived adverse yaw up to at least 180kts.

Vids posted elsewhere - if you can't find them email me for a link.

Kevin,
I didn't notice any significant yawing. In that video the camera was sideways to the wind so it was max drag.
