Video from bottom of Laser 2m
I got a POV Mac-10 camera recently - just trying different stuff with it. This video has the camera mounted on the bottom looking forward. You can see the ring on the tow hook. Also managed a catch at the end.

The camera is ok. Not high def, but simple to use. The constant light level adjustments are annoying, although that probably happens with other cameras too.

The camera's just a little larger than a tube of chap stick.

Well caught. lol A liitle bit of porpoising but a good little vid. I haven't heard of that camera. I use the 808 #16HD V2 cam with D lens. Since I got it I packed away my #11 model. Love it. You have an excellent flying spot.

Hey GJ, where did you purchase your camera? The couple of places I check on line (Radioshack and Amazon) are sold out.

I ordered mine throught Walmart.com back in October, but they appear to be out of stock now too.

Very cool vid. Haven't seen a perspective like this before. I like seeing the flap adjustments on landing and being able to compare the wings' orientation to the horizon.
