VholdR's CONTOUR HD Aerial Test

This is the first wearable 1080p HD video camera. At 123 grams it's a little heavy, but the video quality is amazing! I shot this footage over Santa Monica Pier with my Brushless EasyStar.No autopilot on board this time :( Just a camera test.Post Script,I don't reccomend piloting your RC plane in the manner seen on the video, i.e. above peoples heads, over the ocean etc. unless you are a good pilot with good insurance. or just an adrenaline junkie :) Interestingly, The L.A. lifegaurds didn't stop me niether did the SMPD.-Toby

    It looks like you have a pretty stable shot and nice perspective. Is it difficult to mount the camera and does the camera have any image stabilization built into to it? We fly the flip on an easy star and we are first adding a co-pilot and then we will move to the ArduPilot.

    thanks
