Flight in UnterwindischOn the first flight I took the FinePix F402 - the winds were gusty and the plane was shaking, so there was lots of motion blur on the pictures. Nevertheless I took some nice ones.
Today we had dry wind and the clouds were supposed to clear away with good view in the mountains - it did not happen as much as I hoped. Looking at the forecast (bad weather ahead) I went for flights anyway.
The second flight was with the DV camcorder. It went quite well, although shaky, and I landed the craft safely
On the third flight I took both the Kodak mc3 and the Finepix to have more load and less shaking, but it was hard to get it up well with the 7cell pack
Video edited 2:30min 6.9MB - first you can see me trying to get the engine started, taking off low over the trees, then a sequence higher up, and the landing. Flight duration was close to 6 minutes, I landed because it was not so much fun with this wind blowing...
And here's the DV video (720x576 reduced to 1fps, 19MB)
I should have removed that rubber band you can see at the top. I put it in before screwing on the wing to hold a cam looking straight down, but I have not used it yet.
