Default KeyCam Pendulum mount on 120SR

I'm still very much a heli-noob but that didn't stop me from trying a (pretty stupid) idea this past summer...

On my first attempts, I velcro'd it to the canopy, but the heli electronics were causing a *lot* of video noise. I figured I needed to separate it from the bird by a good margin. My first pendulum was 3 feet - now that one was a handful to fly!

Not sure what the render time was - I usually leave the computer when rendering. I'm still waiting on delivery of a higher end computer that will handle HD.

Thanks for the comment!

The pendulum "string" is a carbon tube constrained from rotating (so this effectively already has two strings).

But yes, a third might help!

Currently working on a more interesting multi-HK-cam system for my new B300X. Stay tuned...
