Dang Trees! The onboard camera operates much better than my piloting.

Highstart,
Is that a straight glider or a powered one? I thought I saw a prop but if not maybe it was not windy enough. Thank you for sharing.

hehehe. That was great. The "surprise ending" was a particularly nice touch.

Two thumbs up.

I type too much!

Thanx for all the great comments.

If I missed any questions or wasn't clear please ask again...

No motor, Gentle Lady 78" kit built years ago, crashed and repaired many times. High Start Launched (50 feet of rubber tubing, 300 feet of fish line.)

Camera Jass Elite Camera (I used D1 @ 720x480 on this vid) but will do HD1280x720, VGA all at 30fps progressive and QVGA ) 175 grams, SD card based, with motion sensing so you can flip lcd closed and it will shut down or start up after 3 seconds of motion...On sale for $150 at Canadian Tire. When I bought it, I figured it was too good to be true, and would be returning it as a POS.

If posting to metacafe or youtube don't use D1 use VGA....should have used HD but the big hd files bog my puter.

For sound I taped some foam over the mic openings otherwise wind noise would have drowned out old noisey servo's!

If you like my stuff please subscribe to my Metacafe Channel, there are some other vids there that I posted here awhile back. My PlasterCard video was last years tree crashing, with the camera facing forward.

I'll be posting more and I've been saving the best for last. Wait to you see a high-start lanch from this camera angle...
