Default First video attempt

A friend who works for a commercial video company wanted to go for a plane ride and experiment with a couple of Drift cameras.

This is about six trips around the pattern we edited down to a few minutes. No cool aerobatics or formation but it may provide a bit of motivation for those still building.

Cool! I like the effect at the end of the clip when you move the slider

Default Excellent

Paul, in my humble opinion, if you said that you paid a video professional several hundred or a thousand dollars to set the whole thing up and edit it. I would say you got value for money spent.

Excellent. The editing really put things together. I think we, collectively, may be starting to get just a little under-impressed with the single view video that is becoming much easier to produce.

Nice video. I'm curious what software was used for the editing?

I just sent your video to a friend that is thinking of building a RV8. This should push him over the fence to commit. Good job. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments guys. I can't take credit for the editing, my pax does this kind of thing in his sleep. I only had
veto power as in "hey don't put that shot in there, looks like I got my finger up my nose". Heck the raw HD video files won't
even play on my old 'puter.

The only tricky part was attaching the camera to the tail tie down. To get the rudder bottom out of the shot and still have it
appear to be looking straight back I had to make a mount dropping the camera down about 3 inches. I wasn't worried about take
off but smacking it on the runway on landing so I sort of drove it on a bit.
With only 10,000 ft. of concrete to work with it was close.

Glad you liked it and now If only Santa would slide one of these Drift cameras under the tree tonight...

Merry Christmas
