Just takes practise and lots of time, that took four visits to the track with 5 different guys and two days in the edit suite, in my spare time

Glad you liked it, thought we'd spice it up a little with more wheelies, on board and trackside shots, and it worked a treat!

I like the onboard views! Was that a wireless camera or just a small solid state recorder?

On board footage was from Flycam One2. Internal 1Gb SD Card memory, no wires, no wireless either.
Rider figure removed and just vecro to the tank itself. I have whole laps taken with both front and rear views if you'd like 'em! A bit tricky to drive with that much weight up high, but fun all the same.

If you have the bandwidth and the time, yes please post them.

I was thinking it would be cool to tear a camera apart and mount the lens and sensor up in the rider's head, then put the electronics down under the bike. Use a Lipo to compensate for the extra weight of the camera or transmitter.

Cheers guys. I tell you what, I'll put the on board camera facing forwards during a race and get some multi bike action! That'll be cool huh!

Yes it will be great, but don't make it harder on yourself to be competitive with the extra weight and wind resistance! Practice laps would be OK, but for a race I don't think I would request that you hurt your chances. Maybe you guys can do a couple extra races for purely fun with the camera mounted.

BTW, that track looks huge! What was it designed to support? looked like you could get about 15 bikes wide down the straights.
