Fly fishing

Or something like that!

Took my HK Walrus with Mobius out to the ol' fishin' hole yesterday and captured some footage. Meant to get the complete sunset over the Gulf of Mexico but my boy hooked a fish just as I was getting ready to launch the plane, so I had to help him with that first. And it turned out that he was the only one to catch anything too!

Unfortunately, the panning servo for the camera locked up off-center left, so the video doesn't show straight ahead views. But I flew it anyway!

Fun stuff to combine the two hobbies.

Man you really need a Sony Double Scan 960H CCD Effio-V WDR camera. That will fix all the dark areas. That chip is truly amazing when it comes to picture quality.

I had the Mobius set for "sunny" plus a smidge of extra contrast since I'd planned on flying during daylight, not 1/2 hour after sunset. The Mobius normally has awesome HD picture quality.

I looked up that Sony you mentioned but it looks to be some kind of FPV thing.
