TWF Tail cam - 2m pitcheron

Key chain camera on my 2m Orca pitcheron.

Note minimal control throws except for high speed rolls, note also the massive turbulence at 2.35ish that caused me to think something was seriously bad and land early (and badly )

All footage real time speed.

Higher res
Tail Cam - Orca pitcheron (3 min 23 sec)

No worries Doc

I hope to get some more with a frontside camera to cut to/from with the tail cam. Maybe even another on a chase plane

It isn't a particularly good slope either, hopefully next time on a different slope I'll be able to do some close fly-bys (trees in the way this time) etc. I would have flown longer, but...

I'm not quite old enough to have flash backs, but I'm sure my dad would agree (he introduced me to the Floyd via his vinyl stash)

Did get to see Roger Waters a few years ago - wanted to see Dave Gilmour but he never toured down under.
