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.

*edit - link now points to a post-process stabilized version*

I've been back to the bridge this fall for another aerial video, this time in HD. Camera is a GoPro Hero HD.

Thanks, butcherman!

The airplane is foam, closer to bumper cores than beer coolers, fortunately.

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.

I'm aware of FAA & DHS concerns, though the issues are far from clear. For example, the FAA now requires models/UAVs to be fully certified if they take aerial photos for money, yet there is no certification required for non-commercial aerials. Here is what I currently fly (first photo is from the kit mfg; second is my camera mount). It weighs about 1.5 lbs:

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!!

I made it back to the bridge a year and a half ago, and finally flew under the arches.

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.

The GoPro on top of the Easy Star survived this impact with a tree, though one of the case mounting lugs cracked: http://www.youtube.com​/watch?v=8Z7IXQpwpV4 (external link)
