Second sortie. This time in an Aventura with the cowling off, wrapped in foam, and power off on imaging. I have now determined (by accident) that my infinity focus is off. The photos were still blurry, but showed no sign of motion. So, I have disassembled the camera and reset the inifinty, I will test it tomorrow on the ground and see.
See sortie number 2. I shot a video...124meg later, I have to install my video editing software to figure out how to convert it to smaller size.

Final approach. This thing is going in the grass, but I often land my SB and Urban flyer on the side walk.

Did you adjust the focus while the camera was hooked to the computer?

I have tried the trial and error method but it does not seem to improve any.

Nope trial and error here also, but I got lucky I hope.

If you were near a window you could do it by turning the camer on live mode and focusing on something very far away.

The adjustment I made was to turn it 3/32" clock wise, but it will be different for each.

Results after focusing. I think I have to cut the focus back a bit...

Woohoo I just crossed 500 posts!

OK, I think I'm starting to get the hang of this. These pics were taken from a switchback thermal (switchback with the duskstik polyhedral wing on it) and the camera strapped between the landing gear legs. My ESC in this has a brake, so the pics came out pretty good! This isn't my usual flying site, but here we are anyway. I'm the speck behind the red car on the left, craning my neck back I'm amazed how high I got today!

From today's Wingo recon mission

I flew this time from a park about 3 blocks from my house.

Some kids were having a birthday party at the gazebo. I got a chuckle when I overheard one of them say "Look, that kid is flying his own airplane"

Intellectually speaking, he may not be all that far off, but I will turn 44 in a couple of weeks.
