Cool
My own 349mph PB vid

I've still got a bunch of other vids to render from the Dyno-fest weekend and maybe
another couple from the WR morning, but here's my own PB vid morning of the WR.
Self shot from the Hero HD on my head and sound with Zoom H2 with "dead cat" windscreen.
Best viewed at 1080p, if your machine can handle it.
349mph - My new dynamic soaring PB on the Wizard DSX (9 min 2 sec)

[edit]Had to re-upload the video to swap the stereo channels as I had em backwards.

In hindsight I wish I'd filmed more of the other vids with the camera on my head
because it came out a lot better than most of the others.

Great video and sound, the 'dead cat' certainly works, very smooth flying. Do you have to do much work on the Hero output before posting on Youtube?

Usually I don't have to do anything with the Hero HD videos, but it was so dark
and contrasty that I tried to brighten this one a little (mostly unsuccessfully).

Great video Ian. Some of those off line passes looked even faster.

I think that the helmet cam makes for the most watchable videos... the plane is always right in the middle of the frame...

In the middle of my earlier 346mph PB run on Sunday (2nd plane to fly after the big wind blew in)
I asked Nick to video a bit and he caught this short clip.
I don't remember the laps being that tight. The flutter sound was just tape.
346mph - Wizard wound up tight (0 min 33 sec)

Awesome flying, great video and excellent audio. Great work Ian!

The air has been light up here in the Bay Area and watching this give me the itch for a trip down to Isabella.

Keep on rippin' it up!

Great stuff Ian, congrats on your new PB. Thanks for bringing the rest of us along for the ride from beginning to end.
That fly by was very cool too.
What settings are you running on the h2? (quality/gain/mics/etc)
