I'm very happy with the front mount by Askman on my T-600E. My husband and I went camping this weekend on base and our local flying field is just down the road from where we were. On Thursday, I bolted on my home video camera and shot 2 battery packs worth of video to see if there were any unusual vibes up in the air. It was smooth! The only jarring on the video was actually whenever my husband used the tilt servo. We don't know yet if it is the resolution in the radio (72Mhz) or the resolution...

Well, I ordered 2 TP 5000 eXtreme V2 packs and they should be here shortly to start maiden flights on the AP ship before the mount goes on. I'm still wating for USPS to stop by my house with the mount and I keep giving my mail carrier the evil eye when the only they bring by is letters.

Once I get the initial flights done with the stock machine and I'm happy with it all being balanced and tracked, I'll then go on to add the camera mount and some dead weight. Last step will obviously...

Re-entry into AP

Posted 02-25-2008 at 03:32 AM by Whirly-Girl

My first go-round with AP nearly 2 years ago was a minor success. I bought all top of the line equipment and I loved it! I had a beast of a machine: a Bergen Intrepid EB swinging 810mm blades, a G-26 engine, and JR electronics. I used a HeliCam Solutions Pro 60-3x underslung mount and was taking pictures with my Canon S2 IS camera. All in all...a great setup!

But, some good things come to an end when you have family situations arise. You see, we lived in base housing at the time...unrenovated...
