Another video for a rainy day.

I know it's dumb but watch it anyway. After all it is one of our greatest fears. The Launch~

Re: Another video for a rainy day.

How did you shoot that section starting around 4 minute? Its like you had drone out of control, but I don't think they had drones in 2009......

There is no off season.

Re: Another video for a rainy day.

The camera was mounted to the top of the mast with a safety line. The camera broke away from its mount and that left the camera flopping around by a 2' safety line. Thus the weird angles. I shot the footage and then tried to figure out how to make a video out of it. There you have it. All by mistake. I might even try this again.

Probably it will defy replication. Some things are just once in a lifetime!

I misunderstood. I had always thought you'd said that lunch was your biggest fear.

Re: Another video for a rainy day.

We are getting closer. Chris V. already tried attaching the camera to a small glider and then attaching that to his mast. Didn't work too well as I recall.

What your guy seems to be doing to holding the camera on a string and then twriling it around with his wrist, like casting a fishing line.

Won't work on a windsurfer but could work on a dirt bike with no trees around.

New idea, I will have to try it.

Take this idea and run with it before Radny does.
