GoPro camera

I don’t own a GoPro camera, but then, I live a rather uninteresting life with little opportunity to use one. Also, I don’t even find the time to sort through all my photos, so I imagine I would have even less time to go through videos and cut them, etc. I am glad that so many people out there use those little cameras though! I got more than one good adrenaline rush from watching GoPro footage on Youtube. Interestingly, I get more knots in my stomach and sweaty hands from watching people climb skyscrapers and construction sites than, for example, watching footage from a motocross track.

Anyway, it’ll be a couple of decades until we’ll see footage from Chuck’s corsair, so in the meantime, if anyone of you has a great GoPro video to share, please post the link below!

    It’s not technically a GoPro, but rather a much cheaper Chinese version, but it works very well.

    Not sure what counts as a “great” video, but here’s one of flying above the clouds under VFR:

    I almost shot an interesting one of entering Erfurt (EDDE) CTR under Special VFR with low ceiling (800 AGL), but even before takeoff I knocked the camera down with my arm so I’ve got 80 minutes of high-quality 1080p footage of the rear seats.

  2. How ’bout a slightly different GoPro video from the crowdfunded rocket engineers at Copenhagen Suborbitals ? The GoPro camera isn’t in a lot of moving action in this one, but the camera is being thoroughly blasted by a failure at a rocket engine test and yet managed to record this video surviving the inferno of a rocket engine. Note at the end of the video they show how the GoPro looked after the blast (I think GoPro gave them a sponsorship for the unique demonstration 😉

    Considering Chuck’s skills at assembling and piloting planes, the camera will double as a flight recorder.

    FAA would ceize the camera after Chuck flying into any major airport, as evidence.

    Great video that you shared. What model is the camera used?

    My first solo in a Cessna 172, shot with an iON camera (a competitor from the UK). Here it is:, enjoy!
