GoPro Hero2 attached to my 1/4 scale Piper SuperCruiser

I had originally bought the Kodak zi8 camera and it shot awesome 720p 60fps video. The quality in my books was great. But then I used the wrong charger one day and friend the internals! I explained all this to Kodak and they said that they would take a look at it. 3 weeks later I got the Kodak Zi10 Playtouch. It had a touchscreen and was really nice looking. I couldn't believe that they replaced the Zi8 with a Zi10 for free, but who was I to complain? After filming with it though, I noticed that it just didn't seem as clear to me as the Zi8 was. Totally bummed. So fast forward to this week. I have been wanting a Go Pro Camera and thought that they were really neat and produced some awesome videos. This is my first aerial video produced with the Go Pro Hero 2. Tell me what you think and what I can do to improve. Please leave comments here or on the Youtube account for everyone to see. Thanks.

Very nice!

Perhaps you could try to mount the camera on a pylon, to give it a little bit more down angle, it's just an idea

Like it. Would be nice to see a photo of your setups, in addition to the view from the camera attached to the plane.
