A video clip.
I am particularly proud of this little video clip — mostly because it was my very first attempt to video another helicopter drying cherries.
While this might not seem like a big deal, understand a few things:
- The camera, a GoPro Hero2, was mounted on the helicopter.
- The only way to point the camera was to point the helicopter.
- There was no video monitor in the helicopter to see what the camera was seeing.
So while it’s true that you can get much better footage from a helicopter, this is pretty damn good for the setup I had.
I especially like the footage I got as I flew around the target helicopter, keeping my helicopter’s nose pointed at it. I was about 150-200 feet up, slowly hovering sideways to get it. So glad it wasn’t windy.
Anyway, enough patting myself on the back. Here’s the clip:
