Some of my 2011/2012 flying videos

Here's a few of the videos I've made with my GoPro camera, mounted on the wing strut. Most of them you should be able to watch in 480p or 720p...

Landing at Gaston's grass strip

Dauphin Island Landing

Cessna 150 Dauphin Island Takeoff

13 Landings in a Cessna 150(2 min)

8 Landings at 8 Airports (1 min)

Flying in Light Rain

Dodging a thunderstorm near Memphis (good lightning strike at the 18 sec mark)

Buzzing the Tombigbee River

I love it. I just got the entry level goPro, but it's good enough for my enjoyment...

Absolutely! A 10-15 minute walk, and you're on the beach. I flew down on one of my days off, had a backback with me with a beach blanket and some water, hung out on the beach for a few hours. On the walk back to the airport, I stopped and picked up a few pounds of fresh gulf shrimp, threw them in the cooler for the warm flight home, and the wife was happy that night. (She was jealous that I spent the day at the beach, but the shrimp made up for it)

Great videos atc. Simply awesome. Do you have a pod, or special set up for the external mounting of your GoPro? All I have for mine are like roll bar mounts, suction cups, and such.

Oh and one question, at 0:38 at Dauphin Landing video, are those all houses destroyed from Katrina still, or are they trailers? They just look like displaced houses.

I have a wing strut mount, I think from a company called Aero Video.

Hmm, I guess I didn't really pay attention. I can't tell what's going on there, but it does look a little weird...
