Here are some photoes of my take-off/landing lessons, it's the second time I ever flown it:





and there's also a short video (in hebrew, sorry). I put two small camcorders - one on the plane and one glued to my sunglasses so I can record my POV with both hands free (the date is screwd up, dont mind it):

These come to show that this is a great trainer! I only had simulator practice and one short test on the evening before, and the wind was quite strong.

Next thing is mounting a serious HD camcorder on it and chasing some scales, or a group of birds...
That video looked really sharp to me.. What camera did you use?
