I am so thoroughly disgusted with myself. I mounted my gopro camera on the head mount, turned it on and proceeded to fly one of my best flights with the Auto-G to date. I performed a flawless, virtually hands off rog take off. I did double loops, aileron rolls, snap rolls, walking touch and goes, low slow flybys and a beautiful zero rollout landing.

Apparently, I can master the idiosyncrasies of Autogyro piloting but I'm clueless on the quite complicated operation of one button filming. I did manage to take two still photos, one of me pushing a button at the beginning of the flight and the other pic of me pushing the button at the end of the flight. Who knew that one needs to verify the camera is set to video and not photo if you want to capture an entire flight

I did mount the gopro on the Kellett and got an interesting point of view for the flight. I plan to take the video my mate took of the flight and edit the two together for a new perspective of flight.

Al, you make photography seem so effortless! Well done.
