Branching out from another thread, at the weekend I managed to attach a tiny Key Fob video camera to my Rev. The initial results can be seen here: http://www.vimeo.com/13463554
(sick bag recommended).

Since then I've constructed a more sturdy mount from PolyMorph (wonderful stuff!!) and a cable clamp which should allow it to point straight froward from the leading edge.

Here's the camera in its new mount

Here's some picture of the mount and attachment

Hopefully I should have some more footage at the weekend...

Not really - the wind was a bit up & down so it was hard to tell but the whole caboodle only weighs 22 grams

Any chance you are both going to be in Portsmouth?


Possibly - haven't got that far arranged yet, but we've missed out on most of the fests this year due to family commitments so it would be nice to get down

Wobbly.

I looked on ebay for your key-ring camara, and theres about 500 sellers  :blink:

Could you be a bit more specific about the model No, or a link to the seller you used please.




Cheers.




Derek.

WOW - Nice video - What a concept

I didn't need the sick bag but that feeling must be what you get flying a jet when you go inverted.

Hi I am sorry but you have jumped to the wrong conclusion, I did not say that I filmed this masterpiece merely that it was filmed at Holland Haven, my only part in the video is that I was one of the Quad pilot's trying to hold a kite still in the air, I put the link up to give people an idea of what is possible when a kite/camera combination is in the hand's of a master flyer/camera operator

I'll dig out the link for the place I bought mine - was very cheap. Delivery was about 2 weeks from the far east. I souced a memory card locally due to the number of counterfiets available from shady sellers...

This is the place I got mine from - it's gone down a few pence since then even. You can't really go wrong...

I'm going to order a few more for a multi-point buggy cam rig - one forwards, one on the pilot, one from the kite... Posted Image

Here's another quick video I did at the weekend



Unfortunately it was in the same plane as the sun, so there is a lot of rapid exposure changing going on....

Make sure you are using at least a class 4 SD card to be fast enough to record the video stream. Juddering is a common issue with slower cards. Not sure what you mean by glittery though...
