Default Custom built mount and old VHS-C

Before we put the good (read expensive) equipment in the air my buddy and I have been playing around with some cheap stuff.

He made a camcorder mount out of old tail booms and PVC pipe, added a carry tray, some dampeners, an RC truck shock to stop the tray from swinging, and attached and old VHS camcorder. No down link...

All and all not too bad for the first time up - 8 megs - WMV format

I am going to have to teach him to hold his positions a bit longer :wink:

I drove the mount around on my Rappy 60. Like driving a dump truck! Still cool :glasses:

Yeah and stupid Will... tempting me with that cheap Observer pricing! I was already calculating up the total cost with a G26, and other needed items.
