I know, right? I'm just sayin'...
Big altitude, Jeremy! Looks like they're doing maintenance on the bridge. Is that what brought you there, or just coincidence?
Just a coincidence. I was in the area and had an opportunity to swing by.

Very cool. I've been thinking about a similar project myself. Is this another instance of were you just use the Hero HD to record and then process the file at a later time, or is this live streaming video? I understand we some have folks in Washington that want to ban the use of live video streaming from model aircraft as we are all viewed as latent terrorists plotting to wreck havoc and mayhem.
Tools: I like things with real dials and knobs.

I fly the aircraft normally, starting the video recording before I take off. Shot composition is an estimation. Others fly through downlinked video, also called FPV - first-person video.

Awesome shots....love those types of bridges, though I bet it would be scarry to be under when a train goes over lol!
I think it would be MORE scary to be under there when one of those idiots throws an old TV set off of the bridge!!

Your plane reminds me of a GWS Slow Stick I had. I flew it with a mount I made from Home Depot paint stirrer sticks that held a Sony Cybershot and a servo to activate the shutter using the rudder channel. Very cool shots.
The first plane in the thread started as a Slow Stick, with lots of modifications. The mount on that one was part of an adjustable blower/coolant tube, and while adjustable, it was also prone to popping apart during rough landings.
