All I can say is anyone who doesn't like Dave Gilmour/pink floyd is a heathen!
So I can take the 'learns 3d' of the title now!

Yes it comes with a headband mount. It's very good especially when the suns out.
It has a very wide angle. The close up scenes were catching distance, I felt like it was flying in my face, it was that close.

Go-Pro. Ok now I know where I saw one. Wal Mart for $199. Yep, I need to go look again at those cameras. I think the one at Wally World was the Hero. From what I'm seeing online $199. Is a good price. Thanks.

Tom
Just found it again on the Wal Mart site. It is $199. Called the go pro naked. No head band but I found that on the go pro site for $14.95. It does come with a plastic water proof case.

Guys, thanks !

I have a cunning plan. I'm going to remove the motor off the fat yak. And turn it into a sloper. Complete with Swiss holes. And see how it goes as an Ultrabatics!

I maidened my Swiss fish earlier this week when it was wayyy toooo windy..

Awesome! I've always wanted to get into slope soaring... but not that many great spots around here, plus I'd hate to travel just to fly. Oh well, powered is fine for now, great video again!

Thanks Dan.
Not sure if I should convert a Cravk Yak to a sloper.
That'd be sacrilege wouldn't it? Plus I wouldn't think that a flat section would work on the slope.
Silly idea..

Getting good at it jimbo, nice man. I say go for the slope yak and make sure to get video.
Better hurry RC before they are out again. I'm waiting for feedback on the upgraded motors.

Will using 3x9g servos instead of 1x9g and 2x5g adversely affect anything? I can't find any 5g servos in my stockpile...

Had a good session last night. Uploading video now.

Ive done a comparision between the Go Pro and the 808#16 on this, so you can see the difference in field of views.

You can see the low light performance of the Go Pro is much superior. But the FOV is much wider ...

Enjoy!
