Default Flying my RV-9A in SoCal

I have posted a couple of new flight videos on You Tube. I like having all the audio calls for tower, traffic, flight following and CTAF included in my videos. So with that said, I tend to edit out the flying, till something comes over the radio.

Here are two flights from last Sunday. Enjoy.

Chino up to Big Bear.



Big Bear back down to Chino.

Peter,

Great videos. Got my Private ticket at Cable and my Instrument rating at Chino. My old stomping grounds.

Excellent video. Do all you guys in the US talk so fast and have such friendly controllers? Ours are usually all business. By the way Pete, I stumbled across your build site years ago when I first heard about RV's and long before I ever thought I'd also become a builder one day. Nice to see the end result of your project.

Default Great video

Pete,

Can you share with us what camera you are using, and how you are recording the radio calls? Keep the videos coming!

Default Camera Management

Thanks for the great video - just as interesting and informative as your build log.

It seemed that the camera was on an easy swivel mounted that you could easily reposition with your right hand. Is that right? Annd then I guess the camera had an LCD display so that you could monitor what the camera was seeing. In any case, I enjoyed the different views as the camera was reposioned.

On the flight to Big Bear it seemed that there was a bit of bumpiness just as you were pulling off the runway onto the taxiway. Was the ground/pavement bumpy at this point or was it something else, or just my imagination?

Default yes, more video info please!

look at 6:48 in the first video....the cam comes out of the mount. Interesting that the prop now is visible, so I'd guess the mount has a filter?
Is it just velcro, or clipped in? Kinda looks a bit like a fancy modified version of my Sony videocam case.
Nice clear radio procedure...not sure we readback quite as much, but certainly is a good habit....(if we are really listening for the potential errors!)

look forward to your hints and tips on doing these great videos!

I am using a GoPro Hero3, mounted with NFlight GoPro Kit. The kit comes with an audio cable that splits the input for the headsets. So you are recording anything that you would hear in the headsets. You can buy a similar audio cable from Aircraft Spruce, but then you also need to buy a Micro USB adapter. My GoPro Settings are 1080p with 30 fps. I use a iMac with iMovie to quickly edit the footage.

The NFlight Kit mentioned above has a suction mount that allows me to swivel the camera. However, that means the camera is held just a bit loose in the mounting, which allows the vibration to come in at low idle speeds. That's why you see the shaking as I exit the runway at Big Bear.
