Aerial Views of Cherry Drying by Helicopter

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:

  1. Great video, Maria. The sharpness of the HD Pro is amazing. And yes, pat yourself on the back for some great flying. Very impressive.

What do you think?
