Cool video, Steve!

PS: From what I've seen, Steve pretty much greases every landing.

Default mounting

Most excellent video Steve,

I just bought a GoPro Hero last week and have not used it yet.

How did you mount it (them)?

Thanks

I mounted the camera with one of the standard mounts with a hole drilled in it and a countersunk washer. I used one of the wingtip screws. I found that idea here on the forums. I only have one camera. I edited together video from two separate flights to make it look like the same flight. If you notice, the runways/airport are different. I used Avid video editing software I bought at Best Buy. I have to say, I have tried dozens of video editing software programs in the past--this one is by far the best and easiest to use.
