Mounting a Camera to an Airplane – Update
Yes, We Know it is a Bit Long – It’s a Test!
The first video test of the GoPro camera in flight went well. This test demonstrated that using a 5 inch tall, suction cup mount will show vibration in the video footage. The GoPro HD Hero 2 was set to “wide” mode, and we believe that this is probably not the best mode for forward looking distance shots. The audio worked well considering it was not very controllable in our current configuration. All things considered, it was a good first test of our equipment. In the next flight test we will make the following changes:
- Shorten the camera mount
- Change the camera mode from “wide”
- Use a new audio recorder
