The strip (parking lot) you see in that last photo is my take off/landing zone.

Hi Eric
You may have said before but what is your setup, plane, camera etc. Your pics look good. Do you have any vibration problems ? I am using a Slowstick and the Aiptek pencam and I do experience so vibration wiggles in some of my pics. I like to snap pics on the way up under full to near full power and that's where I have the most problems with Vibs (as one would suspect).

Richard,
My set up can be seen here:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...threadid=77722
It is the first picture in the post. I do have some vibration problems so I try to take the pictures with the power off while I am in a glide. I have slipped a small wedge of foam at a 45 degree angle to hold the camera in place, and it seems to absorb vibtation. The last picture in this thread with the blow up of me was taken with the power on, you can see it is a little bit jaggy but not too bad.
Good Luck
Erik
