Wow!  I though you were kidding about jumping out of a ballon.  I just couldn't figure how you'd mounted the camera under the basket like that without the mounting boom showing.   ::thinking:: ::rofl::

Glad you enjoyed my videos.  I just shot some more footage using the strut mount pointed at the skis.  I was out landing on a lake about 30 miles out in the middle of no where.  I'll upload as soon as I edit and find some appropriate music.   ::whistle:: ::drinking::

Edit:  Just uploaded the video.  Darn camera cut out after only 2 minutes of video!  Only got the first touch and go.  ::complaining: ::banghead::

Hey phil,
    Quick question for you.  What camera are you using and what video editing software do you use.  I just got a contour camera that I'm going to mount inside the cockpit for leadplane missions, but don't think I can edit it down to few minute bursts for youtube.  Thanks and great videos.
WOW I did that!

Thanks.  I'm using a Drift HD170.  I chose it primarily because of the wireless remote to start and stop recording.  That alone saves a lot of editing time.  It also has a built in LCD screen for aiming, and a rotating sensor that makes leveling the shot easy.

For editing I just use Windows Movie Maker.  For the simple cut and splice work I do it's more than enough.

Here's what I cobbled together last night:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXITnV3WP-o

Should of put this in here a while back.  Warning: this is what happens when two members of Chikenwings meet up viewer discretion is advised, all those of a nervous disposition look away now!

Whoops!  You beat me to it, Ian!  Hehe.

It was a fun, but way too short visit.  Maybe next time we can enjoy a pint.   ;) ::drinking::

Not really a picture from my life but my mother in law took this picture last week in Salluit Canada while she worked there. I taught it worth the share...
