Default Recording flights

Good Afternoon

Having seem some postings on here this seems like a good place to come to
ask about recording flights in a semi hands off manner and an affordable one
too.

So far i've had passengers with cameras record two of my takeoffs and
landings and i liked it and it helped illustrate what was happening, but i'd
like to be able to do the same while flying and letting it run while I busy
myself on the flying part.

Some times in some flights i'd like to set 1 or 2 cameras up with an audio
in fom the intercom. Ideally i'd like to set it up so i dont need to do the
shooting and i can just fly the plane.

Long term i'm looking towards tutorial type vids and maybe use them to
quickly explain things I do when I fly when i'm on the ground. (both for
showing non pilots and possibly long term as a tool as a flight instructor)

Ideas and feedback are welcome

Sadly you have found that regardless of the protestations of the
participants group, no one is truly interested in talking aviation.
After two weeks, I would confer the proof is in the absence.

Next time, tell everyone you are a sim pilot or act like a troll and
request information about something obnoxiously stupid. Expect to find
your cup full from the locals.

The following link contains some photos and some brief comments on mounting
of GoPro HD video cameras externally:

http://www.vimeo.com/18855219

I'm impressed with the video quality; have no first hand experience trying
to video any of my flights though.

Interesting coincidence - I believe the airport (Deer Valley) in that video
is also home to "Chris AKA (Dude)" who has been posting links to Youtube
videos of his pilot training to the alt.games.microsoft.flight-sim group.
Here's one:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASKdt7iMNoE

Somewhere on a.g.m.f-s he mentions the camera he used - some very cheap
(under $30) item.

Hey Brent,

I have been recording almost all of my flights while doing my training
and I have been doing it cheap.
Here is a link to a video made just recently on how I do it and you can
check out my channel for more videos

Thank you very much for the feedback

I'm honestly surprsed there were ways to do it that inexpensively and you
are shaing ideas i had never though of with regards to getting the multiple
angles and an over the nose and a from behind angle and all.

I'm actually hoping to make some vids both to explain a lot of the things i
do and try and show people WHY I fly by general aviation.

Brent,

Your reason is my exact reason for creating videos of my flying and
WHY I rather fly GA from convienence to the "room with the view".

http://www.youtube.com/user/BeechSundowner

My channel contains the basics from VFR air work (stalls and falls),
emergency descent procedure I learned in my Sundowner to the
complexities of light gun work, instrument approaches down to minimums
and just plain having fun "cloud surfing" and playing in the canyons
of cumulus fields under IFR clearances. Many of these I have posted
in these newsgroups in the past.

To answer your question, like Chris, I did a video of my camera /
audio setup that you can see at

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ctu0PxNhxSY

A little less complex then Chris's but worked for me :-) since my
focus of my time was to fly a plane. Chris's setup will pay big time
dividends when he begins his IA training as compared to my setup.

Ever since I started watching BeechSundowner's videos I wanted to do
them too so when I started my training I asked my instructor if she
minded and she didn't which was great. I am always trying to figure out
good setups and how to do it on the cheap. I would rather put the money
into flying than a $500 camera setup. Maybe after I have my ticket I
will sell off and upgrade my setup.
I am really looking forward to continued flight lessons and getting my
instrument one day too. Ill probably fly for a year and then start it.

Cheers,
Chris

IMHO, put the money to flying. What you have is absolutely
outstanding considering the method of delivery via You Tube.

If you wanted to upgrade your setup for local or offline viewing, that
would be different but I really don't find it that much more enjoyable
viewing experience with HD or high resolution when 640 * 480 meets my
needs. Plus the extra time it takes to stream is more aggravating to
me waiting for high rez videos to buffer. I also find the encoding
done by You Tube degrades the video compared to local play back.

I wish when I started my IA training I had something you haave in an
affordable way as was like close to $500 per camera or more when I
started 8 years ago and not nearly as good as what you have now! I
love your panel view and that's where I say it will pay dividends for
your IA training (and afterwards).

I am really looking forward to continued flight lessons and getting my
instrument one day too. Ill probably fly for a year and then start it.


Good plan as that is exactly what worked for me :-)

Enjoy the fantasy of flight without pressure plus it gives you plenty
of time to hone in your skills for holding altitude and heading along
with having fun doing XC's. Just make sure you get an instructor that
isn't afraid of touching a cloud when you cross that bridge
