Pretty neighbourhood!  Sort of seems odd to hear that sound track with it.... So, the qualities great - please don't attach it to a plane (very boring for others): stick it to your head to film flying!

After the wind direction couldn't make its mind up (FS still not flown:) I went down the flat field with my Pike Perfect and a Go Pro. Not the most exciting video but I'm really pleased with the image quality.

That is some top class Video Joel,

I think it adds a new perspective to a persons Flying ,

Quality is perfect , but may i ask why its not Wide-screen , or is that just the Editing suit default 4;3

Regardless its still great quality .

Great video all the way up to about 1:40, when my visual enjoyment was impaired by an ugly mug appearing....

Hi Bob I wish I could answer your question about the widescreen thing.  The truth is that i pressed a couple of buttons and that how it turned out :((((((

Hi Alex

After some thought (well not that much) I mounted it in the case using the sticky pads provided. I put down some diamond tape first so I can get it of without damaging the wing skin.

It needed a lot of up trim and felt like the wind shadow created by the cam and mount was effecting the flow over the tail.Might be something to consider in a big blow with a lot of airspeed.I am going to try mounting it on the wing next.
When it comes to mount positions, one that I think gives an interesting angle is having the camera mounted high above one wing tip looking across the wings. That way you only have the side area of the camera to worry about. The stand can be two plates of corr-ex aligned with the air stream so it doesn't have a high weight or aerodynamic effect.

There's a nice video somewhere of a glider flying round a hot air balloon like that, but I can't seem to find it just now.

That is very cool, not sure how long his flap servo gears will last if he keeps landing like that!
