Filming my friends 3D plane

Got a quick break in today and got to go fly the tricopter with my friend that taught me to fly planes a few years back. He invited me to go fly this morning since the weather was perfect. I managed to film him tossing his 3D plane around the skies with some aerial footage from the tricopter and the GoPro. The footage is actually better than I thought it would be. I was trying to follow him LOS with the camera and the WA lens helps alot. His plane was a super light indoor plane but it was calm out so he did some outdoor flying today.

I recently had to rebuild the Yaw servo on my tricopter and I think I need to recalibrate the MultiWii board since it was fixed. It was behaving quirky at times. May be time to upgrade to the 2.0 code for the Paris board I use.

3D flying filmed from the Tricopter (3 min 59 sec)

nice work..... i have enjoyed filming 3D foamys as well!

GoPro 1 or 2?

I am assuming no gimbal right?

GoPro2 on 720/60 mode. It should have been smoother regarding the jello look but I think I have a few props to rebalance. I dumped it recently and had to rebuild the servo so it probably needs a little tweaking in more places than one. These are my tricopters....hard mount with no gimbal.

looks like a nice rig...

if you set it to medium FOV then you wont get the horizon distortion when you pitch up and down as much.


have you seen my attempt to film 3D flight?

And if you set it to Medium view it also enhances any issues with the jello CMOS issues. I have tried medium before but I don't mind the wide look that much.

BTW....your video was much better. Very stable and the plane was lots closer too.
