Nice, haven't heard that song in forever

Did you use some sort of de-shaker or was the "jello" effect at times the camera itself? Despite the jello at times, quality is amazing considering a 400 is carrying the cam Nice Job!

Thanks guys! It was fun to make and actually the first time I'd strapped it to the helicopter. I've found the more solid the camera is mounted the better.

My editing software has a deshaker built in but my computer is too slow to process it, it keeps crashing during the finalization process so I pulled that effect. This video is just slowed down to about 30-35% depending on the scene.

These Go Pro HD's have very good quality IMO but I still have a ways to go before it's as good as some other guys videos I've seen. I'm gonna work on flying slower and smoother, maybe move up to a 500 or 600 heli. someday
