Personal Flying Videos Mark II

We found a problem with the previous thread, due to the number of posts, so this is the new place to post your Personal Flying Videos.

Please read this thread: http://www.pprune.org/private-flying...be-videos.html before you post youtube videos.

As the previous thread went belly up, here is a re-post of a cross country fligth to some interesting airfields with sloping runways.

Go Pro does some awesome videos. I would be interesting to see footage from underneath the plane during the flare for landing.

Cspeth,

In this video I've attached the GoPro underneath the wing.

Not a common gear arrangement, but the tail-mounted camera gives an idea on the flare.
Unfortunately it also gives an idea why sideways landings are not good for the main gear!

2 rare Soviet wartime-era vintage aircraft (Li-2, Po-2)


Picture quality is not so great, but the engine sounds are quite good. Listen with headphones

DA42-VI IFR North Weald to Newquay

IFR flight showing departure, airways join and climb to cruise followed by arrival into Newquay. Edited to show mostly ATC interaction. This was my first solo flight post IR test. Anyone thinking of doing the CBM-IR, this will hopefully show you how straightforward things are afterwards!

A recent trip from East Midlands Airport to Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green, with a GoPro suction cupped into the back window of the Cessna 152, looking out over the tail. Quite a turbulent day!

Outbound:

If you haven't seen a suction cup, it should look like this:


The big round suction cup really sucks....

Basically how rnzoli said, using the standard suction cup that GoPro sell (its quite big, and sticks pretty well to anything flat!). It was stuck to the inside of the rear windows. Sadly couldn't mount it outside as I don't have a CAA/EASA approved mount.

Well heres mine!

First solo, the most nerve racking thing Ive ever done! Was 50/50 about taxiing back and giving up while I was sat on the numbers!! So pleased I decided to take off!

(Ive edited to fast forward the boring bit!)
