1500m altitude video from the Arctic

We are still out on Spitsbergen flying Paparazzi. Finally the camera worked for one flight. Went up to 1500m and down in glider mode. Usually we fly slower downwards...but to have it more interesting we kicked it a little more. See the video athttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1k_TLcQ2icand the corresponding Google Earth file athttp://paparazzi.enac.fr/wiki_images/09_03_29_17_39_11_55.kml

  • It is a FlyCamOne2
  • Damn fine video Martin! Could you please tell me what video gear you are using?
  • Michael Evans : thank , its very expensive :(
  • Would never fly in U Know Where. At 1000m, it would get shot down by an F-16 & the operator fined billions of dollars for causing home depreciation in the underlying neighborhoods.

    No problem with the ESC overheating ;)
  • What the total cost of your on board Paparazi auto pilot ?

    Oh well... Gonna have to buy a Paparazzi the second I have enough money.. :) It's just that it's on Linux and the autopilot seems to perform so well in flight.
  • Very cool, especially seeing the flight path on Google Earth. I took the liberty of making the links hot.
